Bloom with Hope

Happy Monday!  (I can say that since I'm not at work today)  This is a card I made last night.  I wasn't even planning on stamping last night but I was cleaning my stamp room and I guess there just something about a clean stamp table that I can't stand so I had to get it messy. lol.  I started this card on a piece of whisper white CS (5 1/4 x 4) and stamped the background with the dictionary stamp in Sahara Sand.  I then stamped the large flower from the Bloom with Hope stamp set in versa mark ink and embossed with white embossing powder.  I sponged pear pizzazz ink over the flowers and sponged Sahara Sand ink over the rest of the card and finished off by sponging early espresso ink around the edges.  I did the same thing with the strip across the front of the card.  The sentiment is from the sassy salutations stamp set.
Here is a view of the inside of the card. I hope you like what you see and have a fabulous Monday.  Thanks for stopping by:)

Watercolor/blendabilities

I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend.  On this card I combined my two favorite ways to color, water color and blendabilities.  I did a wash of color on a piece of water color paper that measure 5" x 3 3/4".  I did this by squeezing my strawberry slush ink pad so that there was ink in the lid and took a very wet watercolor brush and washed the color all over the paper.  I dried the paper with my heat gun and then got the ink in the lid really wet and splashed the color onto the paper to create texture.  I again dried the paper with my heat gun.  When it was completely dry I stamped the flower image from the blended bloom stamp set with momento ink and colored with blendabilities.  The sentiment is from A dozen thoughts stamp set and heat embossed with black embossing powder.  This is layered on basic black CS and the card base is Strawberry Slush CS.  All items used on this card are from Stampin' Up!

Thanks for stopping by!

Girly Girl Thank You

Wow over 3 months since my last post.  I think that is the longest I have gone in between posts.  I have got to get better at this.  The truth is I have been very busy working full time and going to school at night so no promises. lol.

I am entering this in the Favorite Mo's Card for 2014 challenge.  Although I didn't post this until 2015 I did however started working on it in 2014.
 
This card is a 6 x 6 card.  The image is called "girly girl Candy" by Mo Manning.  I have water colored her with Tim Holtz distress inks.
This was the first time I have water colored a red-head.  Love how it turned out, I think this is my new favorite hair color.  I added some sparkle to her hair bows and her shoes with a clear wink of stella glitter brush pen.  I just love this image she is so cute and a so sassy at the same time.  The DSP I used on this card is from the lost and found heirloom paper pad by My Minds Eye.

Well I hope you liked the card today and I will try and post more often.  Please feel free to leave me a comment and let me know what you think.
