Orange Flower

Hello Everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the latest sketch challenge over at CAS Colours & Sketches.

I decided to move away from hearts and instead used a beautiful wood-mounted flower stamp from Magenta as my focal point, which I coloured for my Day 16 Colouring for the Daily Marker 30 Day Challenge. I played around with different ideas (leaves, smaller flowers) for the other two images until I came across my fun Hero Arts Quattros set – I liked the contrast between the images and decided on a stamp from that set instead!

I added some controlled ink smooshing and a sentiment from a Karen Burniston die to finish off my card.

Magenta Flowers

Hello everyone!

I wanted to share my Day 15 colouring for the Daily Marker 30 Day Colouring Challenge using my 15th wood-mounted stamp! This one is by Magenta and I decided I would play along with the current Color Throwdown Challenge again as the dark pink/grey/black combo is so versatile!

Anyway, I coloured the images using my Twinkling H2Os and added a few Nuvo drops to the centre of the middle flower. To finish off my very CAS one-layer card, I added a Clearly Besotted sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Heart Day

Hello again everyone!

I wanted to share another card celebrating today! This one is my Day 13 Colouring for the Daily Marker 30 Day Challenge and I used one of my older Magenta wood-mounted stamps, with one of my newest sentiment stamps (by Reverse Confetti).

I kept it simple so that the focus would be on that sweet cat and this was one of my quickest makes of the month so far!

Sweetheart kitty

Hello everyone!

Today, I chose an older Magenta stamp to create my take for the current Case This Sketch challenge.

I was actually only using this image to practice with my Prismacolor pencils but I liked how the heart turned out so I decided to turn it into a card!

I had to improvise a bit with this card! I couldn’t find my small heart embossing folder so I ended up using a Hero Arts background die to emboss the heart background and then used the same die to cut a few glitter hearts to add to the card.

I’m also entering this into the following challenges:

The Paper Players – Love is in the Air

Creative with Stamps – Love

Allsorts – Love

Dreaming of First Place

Hello everyone!

So for today’s 30 Day Colouring Challenge, I pulled out an old and sadly unused image from Magenta Art Stamps. Isn’t this horse the CUTEST! That face! I seriously can’t understand why I didn’t ink it up the minute I received it! I remember I had wanted it for quite a while and love the name of the stamp – it’s called ‘Dreaming of First Place’. So sweet!

Anyway, I coloured it using my Twinkling H2Os and decide it would be great to use on the current Freshly Made Sketches challenge. Unbelievably, I stumbled across some perfect patterned paper to create the striped background. Mind you, I have so much patterned paper that it really isn’t THAT surprising. I guess what is surprising is that I found this particular pattered paper in the second pad I flicked through!

To finish off my card, I added a small sentiment from Simon Says Stamp.

Thanks for stopping by!

Poinsettia in a pot

Greetings!

Another day and another Christmas in July card! For today’s card, I worked with a lovely stamp from Magenta Art Stamps which I got five years ago! It’s another large image and I have struggled to use it in many cards… but I love colouring it in!

I heat embossed the image and then used two shades of red from my Twinkling H2O collection to colour the flowers but you can’t really see the two shades in my pictures unfortunately.

After colouring the image, I added lots of gold splatters using some diluted Cosmic Shimmer powder. On reflection, I feel this may make the card a little busy for a CAS card…. or maybe I feel that because I added a blue card frame rather than my ‘safe choice’ of white card…

To finish off my card, I added a sentiment from Penny Black.

I’m entering this into the CAS Christmas challenge – poinsettia.

Thanks for stopping by!
