Inspired by All the Little Things #78

I am honored again to be Darnell's Guest Designer for the second half of January.
Don't these look good enough to eat.  Love sugar cookies.
I was inspired by the soft colors, flowers and heart.

CAS Mix Up January 2018 -2

Another card for CAS Mix Up trying this technique again using more water with Brushos and spritzed with some Shimmer.  I think that was a mistake cause it sort of moved the color around so you can't see the lines as well made by the cling wrap
Love this cover plate by PTI Winter Floral
Banner is The Ton Basic Banner
I have another one in the works, but it is still drying.  Hoping for a better result.



Thanks for stopping by.

CAS(E) this Sketch #254 & Color Throwdown #475


Oh, what a fun and productive day in my craft room.  It's been a long time since I have had a day like this. 
This card is for 2 challenges:
Love this sketch by Leigh
&
The colors listed under this were Navy, Aqua and Pink so that is what I went with.  It actually looks like purple and baby blue to me.

Twofer Card Challenge #1 with Darnell

Everyone's good friend, Darnell has started a new challenge for all of us.

I thought this would be quite a challenge for me, but my mojo was working well and I think I did both of these cards in less than an hour and it only took me one time for each.  Love when that happens.  Of course, I sort of had an idea for the first one as I was laying awake at 3 in the morning thinking of it and a hint of how I wanted to do the second.  But to actually have them work is a MIRACLE...Lol

PTI's Feather Finery embossed in the first card and added some Nuvo Drops and then the second with CP inks and some Gina K. Foil Mates.  Doesn't show in the picture but the strip has blue marbled through it.  It's very pretty IRL.


Thanks for stopping by.

CAS Mix Up January Challenge with Cling Wrap

I struggled with this technique a bit.  I didn't have any spray starch and just tried it without that.  The cling wrap didn't stay adhered  to the paper so I didn't get any designs with it.  I finally used some Gesso on it first and then tried it and this one took.  I used Brushos on it.
