The Challenge #92 - Black, White + Your Choice

Thursday, July 20, 2017


Good morning again!

Another new challenge happening today ---
this time at
The Challenge!


I chose dark pink or raspberry for my third color choice ---

Stamps: Jar of Flowers & Lovely & Sweet (Lil Inker Designs)
Paper: Watercolor paper. White cardstock (Neenah).
Ink: Midnight & Party Dress (Catherine Pooler Inks)
Extras: Jar & flower dies - (Lil Inker Designs). Wacky stitched rectangle die (Stamplorations).

I've been trying to play with some of the new supplies I've bought over the past few months.  So for this week's The Challenge, I chose some of the newest products from Lil Inker Designs.  I brushed watercolor paper with water and then swiped Party Dress ink and let it flow.  I used Party Dress to ink up the flowers as well.  I did ink two flowers up in "It's a Girl" for a little contrast of pinks.  

Don't forget to hop through the Design Team and see all of their fabulous projects!  I'm so very humbled to be a part of so many talented ladies!  They inspire me every week!  I hope they do the same for you!

I did a very CAS card today to showcase the Kindness Matters stamp set.  I stamped it in Versafine Black Onyx on Blushing Bride pink cardstock and colored it in with distress markers and aqua markers.  I love the brightness of the flowers and leaves against the light pink background.

4CC #359 Summer Celebrations {Nance}

Thursday, July 13, 2017

Happy Thursday!  

Wow!  It's almost mid-July already!  Time is flyin'!  I've been MIA for a couple weeks.  Hubs and I went on a FABULOUS vaca to Arizona and then of course, I needed a week to recoup when we returned.  

Today I'm hostess in the Hen House and my theme for this week is
4CC #359 Summer Celebrations

Interpret that in many ways --- summer birthdays, vacations, reunions, camp, festivals, etc.
SUPPLIES:
Stamps: Sea Life (I think it is an old set from My Favorite Things).  Sentiment (Your Next Stamp).
Paper: Watercolor paper and teal cardstock.  Spectrum Noir white cardstock.
Ink: Spectrum Noir markers, Versamark, Distress Inks (for watercolor background).
Extras:  White emboss powder; Swirl cover plate (Lil' Inker Designs); Scallop stitched frame (Pretty Pink Posh), Washi tape die (MFT).

The Challenge #91

Thursday, July 13, 2017

Good morning again!

This is an edited version.  I discovered my dear little kitten, upon jumping onto my laptop, deleted the first part of my post here!  
Bella, Bella, Bella!
Today The Challenge 
is a 
Sketch Challenge!




I started subscribing to Hero Arts monthly kit and last month's kit was an African/safari/Serengeti set. I hadn't had a chance to play with it since we have been on vacation and then settling back in reality once home.  So I used it for this week's card for The Challenge.  I sponged the background first then stamped everything in Versafine Black Onyx for a silhouette look.  I chose mostly elephants (the hub's favorite) and a couple monkeys.  One monkey is catching a ride on an elephant.  

Now go and visit the rest of the Design Team's projects for more inspiration.  Leave everyone some blog love as Designers love comments too!
