Ocean Bottom

Ocean Bottom - I have a real simple card today. I used a stamp set from SU.

I heat embossed the sea plants and fish, then had fun with my distress inks, Salty Ocean, Antique Linen, Tea Dye and Gathered Twigs.

I finished off my card with some twine.

I had fun making this card for the favorite color combo at Crafts 4 Eternity. I hope you will come and play with us!

Free Fallin

Free Fallin - Hi all, it is the first Saturday of the month and it is time to start a new challenge at Gruffies and Guests. This month our challenge is Fall with the option of anything goes with a House Mouse, Gruffie or Hopper image. So come and join us and see what these adorable critters are up to.

I colored these fun lovin mice with Copics. I colored the sky with a blue Copic, then used a water pen filled with colorless blinder to make the sky. I love how the blue pops!

I used a new banner die and stamp set by the stamps of life for my sentiment. I also distressed with Vintage Photo distress ink.

Silent Night

Silent Night - Time for a new challenge at Crafts 4 Eternity. This one is one that almost all of us do with every challenge. Use something digital!! I used a digi image for mine. 

It has been ions since I have made a card with a Sew Many Cards image. I love this one with the animals in the nativity scene. I colored the image with Copics. I used a stardust pen for some sparkle.

My poinsettia is SB. I cut white paper and added Picked Raspberry distress ink to the centers. Then sprayed water and let the water spread the color. I love how this technique softens softens the color. I used silver prills in the center. The leave is also a SB die.

Blue Sprinkled

Blue Sprinkled - This is my 2 challenges for one card week. This weeks challenge at Crafts 4 Eternity is Tic Tac Toe!!! I went with Something Old (the papers are scraps) Something Blue, and Something New (this was a kit that I recently received from Paper Trey Ink. I am in love with this kit. I have made several shaker boxes with it.

The challenge at Alphabet Challenge Blog is O for Ombre'. It was my turn to pick, so I really hope that you like it and come and play with us. I also get to select the top 3. 

What is Ombre'? It is not monochromatic, but graduating shades of a single color.

 This time I remembered to add the sprinkles before I sealed it up. I still can't believe that I forgot the sprinkles on my last shaker card.

Luna - It is time for a new challenge at The Sweet Pea Stampers and this fortnight our challenge is layers!!! Such a great challenge to show off the beautiful images of Sweet Pea Stamps!

Using Ching-Chou Kuik's Spring Luna in rubber and also available in digi. I colored Luna with Copics. This time I left the cap on my Stickles and glitters. The gold had such a nice metallic look and I wanted that to show. 

My flowers are Heartfelt Creations. I used some Viva's Inca Gold on the flowers, then after shaping them, I brushed on some Moss 3 D stamp paint. I love the sparkle in them. Viva Docore makes some beautiful products. They are always so gorgeous. I used some Gala Glitz in gold in the centers. What I like about the Gala Glitz is that it has several shades and sizes of the chunky glitter. 

My Designer papers are BoBunny's Silver and Gold Collection. I spiraled some red wire around a paintbrush to add a little of the red color to the flower sprays. 

I also used some gold metallic Washi tape to the card.

Here is a side view so you can see all of the dimension in the layers.

Chalky Seashore

Chalky Seashore - It is time to have more fun with a new challenge at Creative Card Crew!! We have a great challenge this fortnight - Chalkboard technique. I have been wanting to try one of these for a while and I must say that it is really fun.

My designer papers are Heartfelt Creations, Balmy Breeze

My image is Heartfelt Creations, Sand and Sea Precut Set. I used the lighthouse image and stamped it with versamark, then poured on while embossing powder and heated it up. Next I used some Snow Cap ink and rubbed it around the image a bit to make it looked a bit smudged after inking up all of the edges.

The little anchor was cut from the Balmy Breeze paper. I added a ribbon and some black pearls to finish off my card.
