This time I sponged a watercolor panel with fired brick, barn door, mowed lawn & twisted citron. I kept playing & adding ink until I was happy. After it dried, I embossed with the Altenew Rose Bouquet folder. I added black & white splatters plus a heavy spritzing of shimmer. my IG post. Altenew's Fancy Hello diecut was stacked with the top layer cut from a black scrap covered in packing tape. I added old black gems & a black mat.
Next is my entry for Color Hues Purple and Green Challenge. I really love having stencils to use for coloring. This card is made with the beautiful GKD Radiant Roses embossing folder & stencils.
I used Memento Inks Elderberry, Sweet Plum, Cottage Ivy & Northern Pine on a very old light purple cardstock I've had forever. I wanted sparkle, but nothing too thick, as this is fairly lightweight paper. Took a chance & used my finger to spread Star Dust Stickles through the stencil. It worked great!
Poppystamps April Challenge, Cute Critters. I'm not sure my card will qualify as featuring cute critters, but I did end up with a card I really like.
Sometimes you don't realize how lovely a die is until you cut with it. That was true for me with the Memory Box Bellflower Circle Wreath that I cut twice from white scraps. I used a variety of ink pads & markers until I was happy with the look. I've been wanting to do some cross stitch again. Maybe threading the needle & adding pale pink floss to the big flower centers will motivate me--haha! The cute bee is from Poppystamps Little Kindness while the butterfly & sentiment are from Friends & Flowers. I stamped the critters in VersaMagic Wheat & the sentiment in VersaMagic Gingerbread. Lawn Fawn glitter pen was used to "color" the critters & I added tiny chino pearls. You can see the shimmer in the video in my IG post. Amazing what a difference it made to round the corners before adding the panel to the mat cut from a kraft scrap. I'm also entering SSS Wednesday & The Snippets Playground.
