woyww - cards and paints

At the beginning of the week my desk was littered with a master plan for Xmas cards.  So often woyww's show their masterboards created (I think?) to form the background for a card or art work. Now that is such a good idea... so I used the painting from last week as the masterboard for my cards.  The only connection the clematis has with Xmas is the colour red!  

A photo of the finished painting which I scanned and printed for the cards.  This week my desk is a pic of another flower I have started in Anna Mason's beginner tutorials.

If I lived in the Northern hemishpere I could of used the snow drop for my Xmas cards but I would never be that organised.    Just happy I have got started on the cards.
Have a lovely woyww.
 I promise to slowly drop by and say hello to all who visit.


  1. Good idea for your Christmas cards! All my good ideas are still rattling around in my head :)
    No time for Woyww today, spent the whole morning doing medical stuff :(

  2. What gorgeous painting this week. I love snowdrops....they mean Spring is on it's way to me :-)
    Have a great week.

  3. Are you sure that clematis isn't a photograph - it's absolutely stunning! It's going to make fabulous Christmas cards. I love the snowdrop too - so delicate and elegant - your talent always takes my breath away.
    I hope you have a great week,

  5. Hi Sandra. Gorgeous art work, just beautiful. I am an absolute lover of Masterboards. I first saw someone in one of the Summerset Studio magazines year and years ago and couldn't think why I hadn't made them before but have done ever since.
    Thanks for the visit to mine and happy woyww, Angela x

  6. Love the clematis and snowdrops, my two fav flowers! Happy woyww :)

  7. What happened to your link? I had to find you ina previous week....
    Never mind. I love your clematis! The colour is indeed very christmassy. Well done you.
    Thanks for visiting already,
    Have a good week,

  8. Your flower paintings are beautiful, Sandra, and your clematis is stunning. What a good idea to scan the painting and repeat it for a masterboard! Thank you for a lovely comment - you are very wise - I can only do what you suggest and take it a day at a time and eventually things will fall into place. Today I am feeling utterly exhausted which is probably a reaction to everything that's been going on! Everything will get back to normal in time.

    Happy WOYWW,

  9. Oooh, I love snowdrops, they're one of my favourite flowers and there are so many different varieties too. Your painting us fab and I'm SO pleased you've made cards from that gorgeous clematis, it was crying out for it. I bet they'd sell like hot cakes!

  10. LOVE the cards from the beautiful clematis.. yes,I use masterboards as the backgrounds for my cards, it's so quick! Thanks for visiting. Helen 3

  11. Beautiful petals, Sandra de! You have really perfected this watercolour technique! I wish I had your patience and attention to detail! Happy WOYWW! zsuzsa #34

  12. Isn't it funny how the flowers that flower in winter, whether in the northern or summer hemisphere determine what is festive. We have holly, ivy, hellebores and poinsettias and you have clematis. I really like that. Your paintings will make stunning cards, Sandra and I absolutely adore your snowdrop.
    Thanks for visiting already, I'm a bit slow off the mark this week!!
    Have a good week

  13. Lovely paintings as always. Love the vibrancy and the shades on the red one. What about treating us all to a poinsettia?
