Hex-floral

Playing with the Less is More Challenge #452. A home made stencil made of three aligned hexagons was used to ink blend some grey ink over a lacy mesh. A Simply Graphic yellow flower die cut embellished with yellow liquid pearls.

Taking advantage of my craft room time to fill up my Christmas stash box. Playing with two challenges: Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #503 hosted by Cécile and the CAS Christmas Card Challenge “Plaid” theme hosted by Colleen 😀

Three plaid stencilled squares with some gloss gel and sprinkled with some clear rock candy. A red Tattered Lace Poinsettia die cut embellished with some gold microbeads. Gold heat embossed “Noël” word die from Simply Graphic.

Sparkle

A great Christmas theme, …for me, with this Less Is More Challenge #451. Using a Simply Graphic fir tree die as a stencil, I applied some super heavy gel and then added some clear rock candy. I finished the card with a red glitter paper star and word die “Joyeuses Fêtes” (Happy Holidays).

Autumn Colours

A beautiful sunny day here in the Laurentians, with Autumn one week away, YAY. The CAS Mix Up Card Challenge, hosted by Leslie, is all about Autumn Colours. After dropping some Daniel Smith colours of red yellow and green on water colour paper, I tilted the paper to allow for the bleeding into each colour. Using an Altenew Leaf die, I paper pieced the negatives and replaced or watercoloured with Finetec pearlescent in gold or black certain pieces. I also added some splatters or included some blanks. “Un sourire” (smile) was stamped with Versafine black and clear heat embossed.
