Polka Dot Party!!

 Ends Saturday June 4, 2016
Click on the header above to head over to their blog to view the rules and to enter the challenge!


Here is my card ;)
I used several different techniques here:
1. Air brushed the clouds with eBrush
2. Used a brayer and ink to color just the dots
3. Used Post-it tape to mask the branch

Thanks for coming by to check out
my card for the challenge!

Happy Stampers "Anything Goes with Dies"!

Anything goes...  with die cuts!
I believe they have a new challenge every month starting on the 9th.

This cutie is called 
"Bekkah Bloom"
You can purchase her HERE!

Upper right photo: I colored Bekkah with the
Copic markers shown.

My entry
includes dies and falls
into the 
"Anything Goes" 

This time around, I picked
the paper first, 
and then colored her to match :)

How do you color YOUR 
images? Do you pick the paper first, or color your image first? 

Thanks so much for stopping by to see

Pick 3 in a row AND add on a "theme" from another 
card challenge blog. Then post!
Our Challenge begins every other Sunday at 7AM CST (U.S.), and closes on Saturday at 11:55PM CST
Please visit their site for the rules!

I was inspired by the image of the teacup by the soft colors and the cup itself. 
I adore working with all things "tea"!!
From Pile it On I chose
1. Emboss
2. Image
3. Die cut

You can find this adorable Sherri Baldy image
(Side note, my printer was running out of ink, which is why I got this
muted coloring in my image)

Or, if you want her to be a blank canvas for you to color the way you need
for your project, click HERE!

If you like the die cut I used for 
the teacups, you can get 
this FREEBIE from "Beyond The Fringe"
blog HERE :)

Thank you so much for dropping by to 
check out my card for these two fantastic 
P.S. Encourage each other always!!

Inspired by Penny Black!

Hello friends!
Here is the video that inspired me:

I used Tim Holtz distress inks on
a craft mat, spritzed with water to create
the stunning background and 
flower colors :)

These can be used as stand alone
cards, or as adornments to hand made cards!

Let me know in the comments
what videos/techniques have inspired
you this week!
