Floral thanks,

Hi everyone,

Today's card is one that I made for the 30 Day Colouring Challenge

I stamped the whole image with black ink onto a piece of watercolour cardstock and then started to add my colours using Zig Clean Color real brush markers. Once that was finished I added tiny white dots all around the flowers using a white gel pen.
Popped the piece up with foam tape onto a card base to which I used stitched rectangle dies to create an embossed frame for my floral piece.
Added some clear wink of stella to some of the petals and some gold glitter glue to the centres. Stamped the sentiment and that's it for my card.

You are loved

Hi everyone,

Well I've had a busy week at work and still enjoying the 30 Day Colouring challenge from Kathy Racoosin.

Here's my card:

I used a die from Memory Box die cut from gold metallic cardstock as a stencil to prepare the background behind the flowers. I laid the piece down and started applying various Distress inks and a SSS ink.When the flowers were all coloured I blended some of the colours with water. I then sprayed the die cut piece with some adhesive spray and applied it directly over the flowers. The 'You' was die cut from shiny black cardstock and the sentiment was stamped with gold ink and a few sequins were added here and there.

You amaze me!

Hi everyone,

It seems that I've gotten  off to a little bit of a late start for Kathy Racoosin's (The Daily Marker) 30 day Colouring challenge


but I do have my first entry here:

Being a crazy exerciser myself I just fell in love with this stamp and die set from Simon Says Stamp.
I went with a background of stars using a Tim Holtz stencil using soft granite shadow ink.
I stamped the girl using Memento Tuxedo black ink and coloured her using Copics. Not the best Copics colourer yet but I'm working on it :)
The sentiment is from the same SSS set stamped with Versamark ink and embossed with white embossing powder.
That's it for my card today and I hope to keep up with the balance of the 30 days of colouring.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day!
