AAA Cards, Freshly Make Sketches, HLS CAS, Just Add Ink, Less Is More

Greetings and happy Friday!

My last card on the "Stripe" theme. This time I've used the colours at Just Add Ink and the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.

Stamped the bunny and painted with markers and aqua brush, did a little stencilled background and heat embossed the sentiment.

Sharing this at five challenges:
AAA Cards - Stencil
Just Add Ink - Colour
Less Is More - Stripe

Thanks for looking and hope you have a lovely weekend! x

ATSM, Color Throwdown, Less Is More, Time Out

Back with another card on the "Stripe" theme, using the lovely Color Throwdown colours and I wanted to use the beautiful flower stamps my dear Mum bought for my birthday.  I masked off a stripe down the card, stamped the flowers and leaves, coloured with Promarkers and added tiny highlights with white gel pen. Sentiment by Uniko.

Linking up to four challenges:
Color Throwdown - Purple, Yellow and Green
Less Is More - Stripe
Time Out - Flowers

Addicted to CAS, ATSM, Less Is More

I was inspired by the "Stripe" theme at Less Is More.  After masking off a section of my card, I stamped the butterflies with various shades of Memento ink, drew two lines with a ruler and marker pen and added the sentiment - very clean and simple!

CAS Watercolour, Fusion, HLS Watercolour, Watercooler Wednesday

Here's my second green and pink card! This time, I inked the stamps with distress markers and spritzed with water before stamping and repeated several times. Some ink splats, sentiment and Nuvo dots to complete.

I'm sharing at the following:

Hello everyone, I hope you had a good weekend.

I've been wanting to join in the fun at CAS Watercolour for some time and have only just had the opportunity to create something, just in time as I think it's about to close very shortly. 

To make the background, I sprayed some watercolour card with water and then with pink and green ink sprays and moved the colour about with a wet brush and dried it with the heat tool, then stamped the foliage with distress ink, added some more water splashes and dots of Liquid Pearls. It was very  quick and easy to make - the ink sprays give a speedy background.

Hi everyone, happy Friday and I hope you had a good week.

I've made a card for Less Is More where the theme is "Spring Walk". I went for a walk yesterday morning and saw beautiful bluebells in a few gardens, so I got out a veeeery old PTI stamp, inked it with markers and painted in with watercolours.

Also joining in at four other challenges:
Inkspirational - Spring

Hi everyone, happy Tuesday.  It's a beautiful sunny day here, I hope you're enjoying some sunshine too!

There are a few rainbow-themed challenges in Blog Land at the moment and here's my conribution.

I wiped various distress oxide ink pads onto a craft sheet, misted with water and smooshed a piece of watercolour card. The stars die cut was cut twice, one in black and one in the rainbow and the coloured stars inlaid into the black frame.

Hello, I hope you had a nice weekend!

Today's card was inspired by the soft colour selection at CAS Colours and Sketches. The flowers and leaves were coloured using SU! markers scribbled onto an acrylic block and blended with an aqua brush, then fussy cut and popped up on 3D foam.

AAA Cards, ATSM, CAS Mix Up

Hi everyone, just another quick post with a card I've made using a die-cut butterfly inlaid into a dry embossed panel. The butterfly outline was cut from DSP mounted onto double sided sticky sheet then I added fine glitter and mica powder and heat embossed a sentiment. The photo didn't really capture the shine and sparkle from the mica and glitter.
