Today as well as a card to share I have some news. 
I am taking a break from Seven hills crafts. 
Real life has gotten in the way of making but  you still have the most awesome talented design team.
Back to the important stuff ...Today's card features Concord and 9th.

I love clean and simple and today Ive gone for a one layer card.
I have stamped all of the images with distress inks but any water based inks will work and spritzed with water.
This gives a very different look. 
 If done with water colour card it works very well and gives a more water colour effect.
The small dots were stamped in versamark and then dusted with gold powder.
Then not being able to resist the gold water colours i splashed some gold gansai tambi paint over.
The sentiment was then stamped in black archival ink.

Gansai Tambi Set of 36

I love making thank you cards and I'd like to say thanks to Tara and to everyone that leaves comments.
Thanks for looking.


  1. Wish you all the best for the next few months, we'll all be waiting for you to be back! :-)

  2. What a shame Kate, your cards are so lovely but best wishes during your break and I hope real life sorts itself out and eventually gives you some well-deserved rest and relaxation! This card is so pretty and really shows how cards can be impactful and stunning even without lots of layers. I love the soft watercolour look, and there you go enabling me on the Gansai Tambi again...! Thanks for the inspiration :) Esther

  3. What a lovely Autumnal card! Real life has a nasty habit of interfering with our creativity - I hope you get chance to return to cardmaking again soon.

  4. Gorgeous card! Have a good break and we will look forward to your return! xxx
