Great idea for a challenge! Your cards are beautiful! Pretty watercoloring that really gets highlighted when you cut out sections of the big picture. This would be a fun technique for making a gift set of cards.
Just beautiful, I love how you split them up. Love the stamp you used.
Hi, Daria! What spectacular cards! I love the pretty watercolor scene by itself, but I also love it as the three spots one the other two cards. They really sing! If you're interested, I'd love to have the first and last cards for my WSW11 Let Me Publish You Challenge! :-)
Very nice cards. I love the colors and the stamp. You did a great job!
Daria, I love the image you used for your challenge. It is perfect, and the coloring is great. It looks like such fun to have created these fun pieces for your cards. TFS
So absolutely beautiful - reminds me of my home state, Iowa - we have Armish settlements, covered bridges and beautiful falls, and wonderful barns.
This stamp and the sections that you used, would make a beautiful quilt card as well.
Your creative struggles, produces a beautiful creation.
Even though I don't live in Iowa anymore - this card really brought back memories for me. Thank you.

This is the first time I've stamped this image. It's also the first time I've used these tins of paint. They look like a children's set of paints, but I bought them in the Art Department of a store. I couldn't see any difference between the opaque and the transparent paints except that one came with a tube of white opaque paint, and the other came with a tube of white transparent paint. Also, some of the colors in the two boxes were the same, some were different.
I had a lot of fun playing with these paints. They were very forgiving. I was able to un-do colors by brushing them with clear water. That came in handy when I cut out the circles. All of a sudden, the mistakes were glaring, but I was able to repair them.
I used Nestabilities Circles (both the large and small sets). The image's circle is 1 1/4“ (3.15cm) diameter; the mat's circle is 1 6.5/16” (3.5cm) diameter.
It took pure courage to stamp the sentiments on these cards. I've been working on them for two days, and I didn't want to ruin them. I used a Stampamajig to help me out. I remembered to use an anti-static bag. I forgot to use VersaFine Onyx Black on the second card like I had planned to. I was immensely grateful that all ended well.
Thanks for looking.
