Way to go and 2 others

Happy weekend everyone,

So nice to see the sun shining and my garden planted which I actually squeezed in between making a few cards. This is one of the 3 cards that I created for the current challenge at
I started with this one first and then moved on to 2 others. I was on a roll!!!
The arrows are from a Set that I purchased yesterday and inked with Tumbled Glass distress ink and  Archival Pearlescent Beige.
Stamps used BoBunny To The Point stamp set
Sentiment Paper Smooches Sentiment Sampler
I also added a couple of wooden dot accent from My Mind's Eye. I just love these!

Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Birthday

Hi everyone, I've made this card for the current challenge over at showcasing Cornelia's card. When I first saw her card my first idea was to use watercolours seeing as I think it is stuck in my head from the recent Online Card Classes for Watercolors. So instead I decided to resurrect my alcohol inks and glossy cardstock. Something I haven't used in a while. I can honestly say that I was out of practice with the alcohol inks and almost forgot how to apply them:) as it took a few takes. Like a movie!!! I jumped right in and swiped the 3 colours on the card and added some splatters of the same in 2 colours. I die cut the sentiment and bent it a little to give it a somewhat curved shape. Mounted the whole thing on foam tape against a black card base. I guess you could say I am happy with the result. Supplies used: Alcohol inks in Lettuce, Sail Boat Blue and Purple Twilight. Cottage Cutz Happy Birthday dies Glossy paper from Inkssentials. Enjoy and thanks for stopping by, Judy
