Hello friend – Happy birthday!

P1060529

Welcome!

My card uses a Kaisercraft Pina Colada stamp set I had picked up as a give away. I’ve been trying to decide how to use, when the latest JUGS challenge was announced.

I did some no line watercolouring with Distress Inks, stamped the half circle with Delicata gold ink, added the die cut and sentiment from Simon Says Stamps.

There is a faint pink stencilling and the piece was mounted on an embossing folder background.

I was quite happy with the end result.

Challenges:  Just Us Girls – Photo Week #408, Seize the Birthday – Anything Goes, CAS(E) this Sketch! – ctd#236 and Happy Little Stampers – Watercolour Challenge – Optional twist – Blooms.

Hello Friend – Cat

P1060527 (2) Hello again

This cute little cat card uses the Waffle Flower – Flora Cat Play which is coloured  with Copics and then covered in Wink of Stella to give it a shine. The background circle features ink blending with Distress inks, as is the banner from Waltzing Mouse – Vintage Banners set.

This cat reminds me of the white china cat ornament I loved as a child.

I hope this shot shows the shine a little better.

P1060528 (2)Challenges: Freshly Made Sketches 302, AAA Cards – CAS Game #97 – Masking, Colour Throwdown ctd:457 and CAS ON FRIDAY – CAS on Sunday – one layer card.

Big Hugs on Your Birthday

P1060526Hi again

I just love these little mice!  So cute!

I fell in love with this little fellow (House Mouse – Taking Notes) and have had him coloured for a while.  It was fun deciding how to finish the card off.

I decided the very simple flowers from Simon Says Stamps – Many thanks set, were the perfect ones to represent what this little guy might draw with his pencils.

Challenges:  Just Us Girls – #407 – Colour Week, Seize the Birthday- Anything Goes, Addicted to Stamps and More – Anything Goes #358 – Colouring an image.

   

Till next time

Love – Sea shells

P1060524 (2)

Hi there

This is a piece of watercolour paper I had water coloured with Distress Inks, sprayed with Shimmer and then white embossed  the sea shell image. It has been sitting in my box of pieces for ages.  I rather like the effect of the silver and silver glitter paper to finish it off.  It is really a very pretty shimmery piece but unfortunately it doesn’t show up very well.  I hope the small pic underneath shows it a bit better.
