SSS and Winnie & Walter

I haven't used the SSS Kaleidoscope Background stamp very much, but I really love the design.  For this card I gold embossed the image & colored with Ocean Blue & Mint Green Liquid Pearls, adding just a bit of water.  The metallic sheen is gorgeous in person.  I die cut a square window in a black panel & gold embossed the sentiment from SSS Thoughtful Messages.  I'm entering SSS Flickr #117 & Kathy's 30 Day Coloring Challenge



Next is my entry for W&W 5th Birthday Bash Layering Die Cuts.  I used watercolor paper & stamped images from W&W In Bloom: Eva's Favorite Flowers using Distress Inks mowed lawn, lucky clover & twisted citron.  Then I added water with a brush & restamped until I liked the look.  For fun, a white gel pen was used to add little details.  The same inks were used for splatters & I lightly distressed the edges.  In a Word: Hello was die cut from a smooshed panel done in the same colors.  I discovered you can add color with a damp brush to make the smooshing deeper colors.  I used a white shadow stacked 5 high.  The word layered on top from The Big, the Bold & Seasons was stacked 3 high, brushed with shimmer & covered with Nuvo Glaze.  I matted the panel with a light gray cardstock & added Wedding dress Pico Embellisher drops.  I'm also entering Allsorts & WAW.

  10. Both your cards are so pretty. So blessed that you joined our Challenge at Word Art Wednesday and would like to invite you again to link with us at the new challenge that started today. Leaving you with God's Word in 1 John 2:15-17 which says, "Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride in possessions—is not from the Father but is from the world. And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever." Have a blessed and wonderful week.

  16. Oh my goodness! The kaleidoscope card is a new fave for me. I adore the colours you chose and the dark border adds contrast and drama. Love, love, love it. The spring one is sweet too and reminds me that here, on the first day of Autumn it's still 41C (105.8)
