Two Birds

This is my fourth and final week as a Guest Designer and it's a sketch challenge at the CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #229

I have used dies for the majority of this card.  The birds and branch are Memory Box, the stars are Simon Says and the moon is Spellbinders.  The sentiment is from a Technique Tuesday set which was heat embossed with Hero Arts white embossing powder.

This month has been a great challenge for me and one I have thoroughly enjoyed.  Thank you for the experience.

Three Feathers

It's my third week as a Guest Designer and it's a color challenge at the CAS Colours & SketchesChallenge #228

I have used a Waltzing Mouse stamp for bothe the image and the sentiment.  To obtain the colours I used a mix of inks - Versa Magic for the peach, a Tombow marker for the denim and Brilliance for the copper.  The pearls are from Kaiser Kraft.

Looking forward to seeing everones interpretation.

Butterfly Friend

I’m back for my second week as Guest Designer for CAS Colours & Sketches #227.  This week it is a sketch challenge.

The circles are cut using a Spellbinder's die and the butterfly from aSimon Says die.  A white border to both circles.  The butterfly was sprayed with Sheer Shimmer Spritz and adhered to the larger circle which was then mounted on the card with foam tape.  The sentiment is from a Technique Tuesday. I masked off a thin edge strip of card and sponged it with Distress Ink, the same colour as the two circles.  Finally I used Kaiser rhinestones to complete the card. 

Be sure to check out the Design Team for some truly wonderful inspiration.

I am honoured to have been asked to be the Guest Designer for the month of June for
CAS Colours and Sketches - #226.  This week it is a colour challenge.

Here is my card

I don't have these colours but I have tried to come as close as I can using what I do have.  I have used an Impression Obsession Hollyhock die.  The flowers were coloured with Hero Arts Fresh Peach and VersaMagic Persimmon.  The background is sponged with Hero Arts Soft Pool.  The sentiment is from a Technique Tuesday set.  It was stamped first using VersaColor Pinecone, then VersaMark and embossed in Hero Arts Clear embossing powder.  The panel and Hollyhocks are mounted on foam tape.  Clear Wink of Stella added to the Hollyhocks was a finishing touch.  Unfortunately it doesn't show up in the photo.
