Cherished Memories

 
Greetings! It is once again time for a new challenge over at Inkspirational! This time we have a sketch to follow. The circles are for placement, but the actual shape you use, is up to you!
 
 
For my own design, I chose to replace the circles with seashells! The sentiment and shells and sequins are all by RedLead Paperworks. I am not the best at CAS designs, but if you pop on over to Inkspirational, you will be inspired by the rest of the design team for sure!  I hope you will create and share a project of your own! Thanks for stopping by.  Hugs, Yvonne

Gone Fishing

 
Greetings and thank you for stopping by my blog! My card today is for the latest challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenge.  Our theme, "Gone Fishing." You can make a project with anything about fish, or even a boat on the sea! My card is quite simple, but I really was trying to capture just what was happening under the surface of the water, rather than the bottom of the ocean! I hope you will stop over to FSC and see all the awe-inspiring makes of the design team for further inspiration and then consider sharing a make of your own with us.  Please remember that we are a stamping challenge, so stamping needs to be the focal point of your piece.  One lucky participant will be selected to win a free stamp by our sponsor, Ink Art Designs.
 
 
For my piece, I began with a watercolor panel. I smooshed various Distress Ink Oxides onto a craft mat, one at a time, spritzed with water and mopped up the inkiness.  I sprinkled water onto the panel and heat set it. It lacked the dimension I was seek so I added spritzes of Distress Ink Sprays in Faded Blue Jeans and Broken China. The hook, sentiments, and fish are all by Paper Artsy and some of my favorite images.  Not sure why I am enthralled by fish, but I am always on the lookout for a new fish stamp! I think I am amazed at how many different fish God created! After stamping the fish on scrap water color paper, I put down more Distress Ink Oxides on my craft mat, spritzed with water and dragged the fish through the inkiness. I also added some color with TomBow Markers and a water pen. To finish off my card, I added sequins by Red Lead Paperworks.
 
We look forward to seeing what you are inspired to make! Thanks for stopping by. Best, Yvonne

Rural Greetings

 
Greetings! It's time again for a new challenge over at Inkspirational! This time, the theme is "Rural."
 
 
I hope that you will stop over to Inkspirational and see all the cool makes by the rest of the design team. For my own card, I began with a water color panel and added various colors of Bister to the panel and spritzed with water. The focal images and background stamps are all by Artistic Outpost. The sentiment is a very old stamp from a company no longer around. My stepfather loves tractors so I colorized it for him specifically.
 
 
I hope that you will share your own inspired work of art with us!Thanks so much for stopping by. Hugs, Yvonne

By the Sea

 
Greetings! Its a new month and a new theme over at Eclectic Ellapu.  The theme this month is "By the Sea." I hope that you will check out all the inspired pieces by the Design Team and then create a piece of your own to share with us.  For my own make, I used several sets of images from Red Lead Paperworks. The background was filled in with water color and a few small seashells complete my card.  Thanks for stopping by. Hugs, Yvonne

Be strong, Hold on


Greetings! It is time, once again, for a new challenge over at Inkspirational! This time, we have a photo to inspire us. I love this photo! Probably as it suits my decorating style.


 
For my project, I created a card. I began by placing a stencil by Stencil Girl over a water color panel. I then sprinkled several shades of blue Magicals over the stencil and sprayed with water. The focal point at the bottom is an image by Dina Wakely as are the sentiments.
 
I hope that you will stop over to see what the rest of the design team has created and then create a project of your own to share with us.  Hugs, Yvonne

Mademoiselle de Paris


Greetings! It is time again for a new challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenge.  This time, our theme is all about "Feminine."  You will be absolutely delighted with the varied samples of the design team and we hope that you will be inspired to create a project of your own to share with us at FSC.  Remember, stamping must be the focal point of your project. One lucky participant will win a free stamp courtesy of Ink Art Designs

For my own project, I began with a water color panel. I spritzed various colors of Distress Inks onto the panel and added water. The beautiful stamp is by Carabelle Studio and stamped with archival ink by Catherine Pooler. The textured lace is a stencil by Tim Holtz as are the flowers. The ribbon is from my stash. Not my first thought, when thinking of feminine, but in the end, I went where my heart led and I am pleased.  Hugs, Yvonne

Later, Gator!


Greetings everyone.  I am here today with the June 2017 Challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu where the theme is "add a touch of pink or purple to your project."  I hope that you will pop on over to Eclectic Ellapu to see what the design team has dreamed up for you and then create and share a project of your own.  For my project, I stamped a flamingo and alligator by Stampotique and added Brushos and a sentiment, also by Stampotique.  I enjoyed making this one! Hugs, Yvonne
