MIM #282

Good evening, last minute entry for PTI's MIM challenge. I don't own any PTI stencils so I made my own using the quadfoil coverplate die and a piece of acetate, I lightly watercolored my paper, die cut a few roses and stamped on the sentiment AFTER  I assembled the card. Thankful for my Misti , I had planned on die cutting a sentiment , but it didn't look right. Thanks for stopping by.

last minute entry

Hello, happy Sunday. I'm planning to craft away my day today (in between laundry ). I am working on Mother's day cards today. I love this floral from The Ton, perfect for watercoloring. I've used it on a previous entry in another color and it looks very different. Off to make a few more cards. Have a great day.

Color throwdown #439

Hello, I'm trying to be creative to occupy my mind. I binge watched 13 reasons why and needed a happy break. The colors for this week's color throwdown are very happy colors so I decided to play along. Now off to finish the laundry I should have done. Be back soon.

CCC #11

Hello, I'm back with another card to share for the Christmas card challenge. The challenge we followed a color scheme., I saw those colors and instantly thought of a wintery wonderland. I am happy to say that currently there is now wintery wonderland outside my door . I used a makeup brush for the background inking, then used a stencil , inked the white , then used a texture paste for highlight. I wish it photographed better, the trees have a soft glisten to them. I hope you will join us.

Hello, I'm back with another card to share for CAS Colours and Skecthes . This color combo had me perplexed for a few days, but I figured it out. Anything works in watercolor in my book. I think this color combo has a more masculine feel to it, don't you? Hoping you will find time to play along with us.

Hello, happy sunday to you. I hope you are having a nice relaxing weekend. My boys are finished with the chess season for this year, so I should have more free time. I've been hard at work on my holiday cards, I should have plenty by Thanksgiving. This week's challenge at Christmas Card Challenges is based on the photo of a gingerbread house. I have had this stamp set for awhile and have yet to ink it up. I chose to go for the same feel as the inspiration photo. Thanks for stopping by.
