Pop

Hi everyone!  Today I have a card for this weeks CASology challenge, this weeks cue card is pop.  My card is also for this weeks CAS(E) this Sketch challenge.  When I saw the cue card, I knew right away I wanted to use one of the images from my long retired Unity Fizzy Feelings set.  This is one set I cannot part with, love the images and the fun sentiments!  I watercolored the image, I'm having so much fun with my Zig Real Color markers!!  I thought the gold embossing powder would show up better than it did on the brown cardstock, lesson learned!
I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by today!

Lession #5

Hi everyone!  Today I am participating in My Favorite Things Summer School, Lesson #5, Quiet Space/White Space.  I cannot seem to make a card lately without some type of watercoloring, I am loving getting my fingers messy with ink!!  I sponged Picked Raspberry, Mustard Seed & Seedless Preserves, when dry I cut out using my Lots of Love Die-namics and cut the bottom portion using my Stitched Basic Edges Die-namics.  I love the look!  I almost put the two edges together but thought it was fun with a bit of space in between.  I added a few random Strawberry Burst Sequins to finish off the card.
I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by today!!

Happy Father's Day!

Hi everyone!  Today I have a card for this weeks Freshly Made Sketches challenge.  For this sketch I pulled out a stamp I have had for a very long time but don't think I have ever inked up!  As I've mentioned, I'm really into watercoloring lately and for this card I used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers.  I need to practice more but I am having a lot of fun with these!
I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by today!

love you

Hi everyone!!  Today I have a card for this weeks CAS(E) this Sketch challenge.  My mojo returned a bit when I saw this fun sketch!  I hope that roll keeps on going, I don't like when it takes a hike!  I finally got my hands on this super fun set from Winnie & Walter, The Big, the Bold and the Happy stamp set and dies.  I've had my eye on them for a bit and finally got them!  I made a watercolor background using Picked Raspberry, Seedless Preserves and Fired Brick distress inks.  I blended them with water, dried the paper and added droplets of water.  The love was cut out 3 times for dimension and I added a few heart sequins randomly.
I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by today!!

Rainbow Birthday

Hi everyone!  Today I have a card for the Avery Elle challenge, rainbow.

  I think I'm in a bit of a slump because a lot of challenges haven't really spoken to me lately but when I saw this one, my idea came to me right away!  I used my new Zig Clear Color Real Brush Markers, it was so quick and easy to do with these markers!  This was my second time using them, I'm in love!!  I heat embossed the happy birthday from my AE So Happy stamp set using white embossing powder.
I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by today!
