Have you ever done a challenge and think you could have done it differently? Well here is my second take on the Color Throwdown #481 challenge this week. The colours are to use  light purpledark purplebeige/off white, and brown. Two rectangle MFT die cuts, one in brown and the other in beige Japaneses paper were adhered to the base. I added two Tim Holtz Wild Flowers #2 die cut out of light and dark purple cardstock. And then a beige thread was attached along with 3 beige sequins and « voilà », a floral card 😉

The Color of Purple

Capture d_écran 2018-02-21 à 16.51.28Color Throwdown #481 has quite the challenge this week. The colours for this week are to use light purple, dark purple, beige/off white, and brown. This was not my first attempt, but it worked out. I heat embossed, in light and dark purple powders, a rectangle strip of card stock several times. Then I added a strip of antique white embossing powder in between. The flowers from McCollection were also heat embossed with antique white and randomly adhered. A rectangle piece of linen canvas was inked with Versafine Sepia and all the pieces came together.

TO Challenge #103

The Time Out Challenge #103 is HOBBIES with the optional twist of ONE LAYER …isn’t that what an ARTIST does? …one layer? 😀 So I grabbed a folded Bristol paper for my card base, and added the primary colours with Distress Stains onto a floral rectangle Capture d_écran 2018-02-21 à 14.22.46stamp (sorry don’t remember where I got it), spritzed some water and got this background. With a wide brush, I applied a layer of Iridescent Medium and, once dry, proceeded to stamp with Versafine Ink a row of flowers, from Dylusions, and then the word « ARTIST », from an old Tim Holtz set (both were clear heat embossed). I repeated the primary colours in liquid Perfect Pearls for the flower petals, a little green to the leaves and scribbled a little ground for the flowers with a Micron Pen. To make the word stamp pop I added white gel pen.

Teal Christmas

Capture d_écran 2018-02-12 à 17.35.51Using CAS(E) this Sketch #258 along withCapture d_écran 2018-02-12 à 17.35.40 the TEAL theme over at Addicted to CAS Challenge #129, I decided to make a Christmas Card 😉  I simply lined up those Lawn Fawn fur trees in my Misti and began stamping with Oxide ink, Peacock Feathers.  I then embossed theme with two different Sparkle Embossing powders.  The “season’s greetings” sentiment was stamped over an MFT vellum die-cut and the card was done.

Yellow Rose

Capture d_écran 2018-01-15 à 13.04.05A sunny card for Sunday morning.  I’m the host over at CAS Mix Up and this month’s challenge is to use Felt, Cork OR Canvas.  Great videos and DT inspiration to give you ideas 😀

I cut a square out of yellow canvas which I stamped MFT’s Rose background stamp with Spiced Marmelade Oxide ink.  This quite opaque chalky ink gave a very good impression which I couldn’t achieve with other inks.  I then cut a larger square out of white card stock and stamped “Bonne Fête” (Happy Birthday) with the same ink all around the perimeter.  Using a Papersmooches rose die, I cut 4 pieces of orangish card stock, glueing them together with a fifth out of white card stock to which I applied a coat of the Nuvo Glitter Drops.  Once all assembled I added yellow Twine along with two crystal beads.

Thanks so much for stopping by, HAPPY SUNDAY 😉 HUGz

Madame Butterfly

Capture d_écran 2018-02-06 à 16.41.08Thought I’d make a Butterfly card today for the CASology theme: Week 286 along with the CAS Colours & Sketches colours for Challenge #258.  Capture d_écran 2018-02-06 à 16.41.18I died Japanese paper in Wild Wasabi green where I nested a Powder Pink Papillon with a Berry Burst Body.  (PPP & BBB 😉 ..having fun)  The Butterfly, given to me by my friend Bonnie, was clear heat embossed then heat embossed again with Sparkle EP.  White Vellum was adhered to the back and then fussy cut.  Liquid Pearls were used for the body and lastly, three pink rhinestones were added.

Four rectangles out of Glitter, or Glossy pattern card stock assembled together to create a rectangle.  The white heart was stencilled with modelling paste, sprinkled with clear rock candy glitter, and the die cut “LOTS OF ❤ ” , out of gold foil card stock, was added to the bottom left to balance.  A rectangle vellum piece was embossed with a Swiss dots folder to frame it all.
