CC519, Blossom Spray


I made a second card for today's color challenge.  I took the image and sprayed it with water and stamped it a few times on my white water color paper.  I embossed the pear piece of card stock with a folder from SU.  I also added a piece of dp behind my image panel.  Again, I used another antique brad for my embellishment.  I love the flavor of vintage.  Thanks for looking!!  :>)


CC519, Vintage Anemones...


This was for today's color challenge on Splitcoaststampers.  The number is 519, and the colors are Blackberry Bliss, Pear Pizzazz, and Pool Party.  I used the image Indigo Blue Anemone Corner.  I watercolored it with the BB.  I also gave a light coloring of the PP in the bg.  I used a piece of dp for my pear pizzazz.  My embellishment was a antique brad along with some pleated ribbon.  Thanks for looking and why not play in the challenge.  You could get your card posted on pinterest.

This is the third card I made with today's colors.  I combined the color challenge on SCS with the Mountain Plains Crafters Sketch Challenge.  The colors again are old olive, Bermuda Bay, and coastal cabana.  I did a bit of dry embossing.

CC517 - Tilted Iris...


I loved these colors so much that I had to try a little something different.  This time I watercolored the whole image of the flowers.  I tilted my panels for a little extra fun.

CC517, Free Flowing Watercolor



The colors for today's cc are Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana, and Old Olive.  What yummy colors Barbara picked.  I used my PSX Iris stamp and watercolored it loosely.

CTD327, Spring Colored Daffodils...


The colors for the color throw down this week are a purple, yellow green, turquoise, and a light yellow.  I watercolored my daffodils with all of these colors.  This reminds me of spring or Easter.  I popped up my framed image added a black ribbon and threaded some purple ribbon through my threader.

Mojo380, Celebrate Mom...

My big words for this afternoon are "Praise God!!"  We found out this afternoon that my mom is in remission.  We are all so thankful.  It has been an especially rough few months as she had shingles and her chemo appointments were postponed.  We didn't think it was going to work this time.  God has other plans.  Anyway, as I was making my card for the Mojo Monday sketch, I decided to work it into a card for my mom.  I used two pieces of dp from the same pack.  The word celebrate is from a SU set, as well as the butterfly.  Thanks so much for looking!!  :>)
