e HERE at LeighSBDesigns Inspiration Blog! The linky party is there, too! 😉 I have been watching tons of Youtube videos and blog hopping and seeing some awesome techniques with die cuts and embossing folders. Which led to me wanting to buy a TON of die cuts...well, you get the picture! But I decided to make do with what I already have and experiment a bit. Here is my first experiment using one square die to copy a look I saw on a video.

This is a 2 month long "Anything Goes" hop that ends September 25th at 11:55pm pacific!"Spread Love Heart Wreath" that comes with 14 sentiments by the awesome sauce LeighSBDesigns!
I colored with Prisma colored pencils and a spot of Spectrum Noir markers and fussy cut the lovely image and heart wreath out. I popped the two larger flowers on foam dots and the sentiment, too. I added some stain glass type paint I had over the sentiment after inking with wilted violets Distress Ink but it did NOT photograph well! I inked the papers with the same ink and did a little white gel pen doodle around the edges of the card. This fabulous image was awarded to those of us who played in the Christmas in July Blog Hop hosted by Leigh last month! Thanks again, Leigh!

Leigh's blog hops are stress free...you play when you want and how much you want! All the details are HERE at LeighSBDesigns Inspiration Blog! The linky party is there, too! 😉 I totally love Leigh's Winter Solstice Fairy and I love coloring her for winter and snow but I decided to try and hurry fall up a bit! So here is my wish upon an autumn fairy!
I used Prisma colored pencils, spice marmalade Distress Oxide Spray and the Nuvo shimmer pen to color her up. I layered her on a snowflake die cut but to keep her in the fall theme used a fall paper. The orange paper is from a Halloween pack from ages ago and I used some found burlap ribbon to go across the bottom. The sentiment is stamped with carved pumpkin Distress ink and is from Mrs. Sparkle & Co. I layered it all atop some kraft colored paper and stamped the sentiment on the same paper. Hope everyone is safe from all of the storms and fires!

Leigh's blog hops are stress free...you play when you want and how much you want! All the details are HERE at LeighSBDesigns Inspiration Blog! The linky party is there, too! 😉 I have been on a stay-cation at home with my kiddos watching movies and playing a ton of video games! Not much crafting just bits and pieces so here are two bits!
Arteza watercolors and the butterfly, too. I added a shimmer Gelato to the wings of the butterfly. I used a Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Opal Quarts pen from the Oozak store on the hearts to shimmer them up. I used Distress Inks to match the colors on the hearts to stencil the envelopes with my Stamplorations mini stencil "Oh My Stars". This was really just playing with some "new/old" stuff! 😋 I will see you at your blogs soon!

Time for our midway post at Ike's World Challenges #135 T is for Three/Anything Goes! You decide which you want to do! Everything is easy as pie with Ike! I made a card using an image from the Japan World Tour Series by Ike's Art! I printed out three different sizes to make my flying decorations! These are koinobori or "carp streamer" and are used to decorate for Children's Day in May. The last time we were in Japan they were everywhere and I loved seeing them flying!
I colored them with Spectrum Noir markers and fussy cut. The paper is mixed media paper that I had played around with some stencils and color sprays on. I glued the koinobori on that and layered on some patterned paper then I glued it all onto a page from my journal that I painted with watercolors. I splattered some yellow acrylic paint onto the wet watercolors and got a wonderful soft bloom. The sentiment is stamped on the same mixed media paper. We hope to see you this month for Ike's World Challenges!
I will be entering this at the blog hop below!
