Hi! I have a cute card today. I colored the two kittens from Clearly Besotted's You're Perrfect stamps with copics and then fussy cut them out. The dp is from Lawnfawn and so is the sentiment which I die cut and then stamped. You can't really see it in the picture but I added glossy accents over the sentiment to give it some shine.

I am sharing this card in Freshly Made Sketches #284 and Sending Paw Prints - Green challenges.

Thanks for stopping in :)

Layering blossoms

Hello :) I love, love, love cards that have pretty watercolor on them but I never seem to be able to use watercolor correctly. I am going to keep trying though. This card is kind of a cheat on watercolor. First I masked off my water color cardstock so that only a strip in the middle was visible. I used Altenew's Bold Blossom set in shades of pinks and greens along the open area and then took a waterbrush before it completely dried to blur the lines a bit.

Once I took the masking off I used a wink of stella on the higlight parts of the flower to give it a little shimmer. The 'beautiful' is a die cut from C&9th's Beautiful You die and the little words are from the C&9th's Beautiful Words set. I used glossy accents on the die cut to add some dimension and then a few Nuvo drops too. I adhered the panel to a top folding card to finish it off.

Fairy day

Hello. I had fun masking and coloring to build a fairy scene!

I started out by stamping my fairies and house from Lawn Fawn and then used sticky notes to make masks for them. I stamped the larger flower and then masked that off too. I used distress inks to create a soft blue sky and the green lawn. I took the masks off and colored with copics and colored pencils. The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted. I framed the scene with some white card stock die cut with an Avery Elle die.

Stamps: Lawn Fawn - Fairy Friends, Clearly Besotted - Good times
Inks - Distress inks, copics, prismacolor pencils, wink of stella
Dies - Avery Elle - double pierced rectangles

Smile bright

I was inspired by Addicted to CAS's challenge word 'Smile'. 

I knew I wanted to do something bright and cheery so I started with a couple of yellow distress inks. I used Squeezed Lemonade and Mustard Seed to smoosh ink on my kraft mat and then sprayed the mat with water. I was attempting to do a water color wash by using a paint brush to put water down on some watercolor cardstock and then add the ink to it. The color was a little brighter than I was expecting but it was definitely cheery. I stamped the sentiment and smiley face with versafine black ink and then clear embossed.

Rainbow day

Hello! This card is perfect for my little girls being that it has a rainbow, a unicorn and (especially!) a cupcake. I hadn't even finished making it and they were trying to take it for themselves, lol.
