Watercolour embossed flower CAS card

Hey everyone, hope you are well! I am here with a CAS card I made recently using some small flower stamps, embossing powder, watercolour pencils and ink pads.

First of all I embossed lots of flowers and leaves of various patterns and with clear or white embossing powder. Next I cut these all out by hand. I then coloured using Watercolour pencils and left to dry for a while. I then arranged the flowers and leaves onto a small card blank and affixed them when I was happy with how they looked. I then stamped the greeting in a gap I left. Lastly I embellished with coloured iridescent gems.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Brown Sugar: Handmade Flowers

Home Decor Project-Beaded Curtain Tie Backs

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with my favourite home decor make in a while. My father made me a four poster bed as he had some spare wood and I have always wanted one! So my job was to sort out the curtains and the decor to go with it. The bed was painted white and I chose Turquoise organza for my curtains. I thought for a while what sort of look I wanted and had the idea to make beaded tie backs, I wanted an opulent look so I looked for a good mix of Turquoise and other assorted vintage metallic beads, gem beads and pearls which matched well.  I found a fabulous mix of odd beads on ebay, then bought some plastic rings for my hooks, and the rest I had in my stash.  I also used Tiger tail, crimp beads, crimp covers and my jewellery tools.  I wanted to keep them as random mixes so I made each differently.
