Merry Monday #226 with Lori Winter Fun

This week Lori want us to make a card portraying some type of winter fun and what is more fun than playing in the snow and making a snowman.  Although, we don't often get enough snow to do that, it is still fun to think about it.


Join us this week at Merry Monday
I do not have much success with Shaker cards but this is a technique that Jennifer McGuire showed and I thought I needed to give it a try.  Well, I must say it was the easiest one that I have done, but still did a few steps wrong and had to go back and review her video. 
I colored this Lil Inkers, Snowman image with copics 

Thanks for stopping by.

CAS Watercolour December 2016 & The Paper Players from Nance #324 Snowflakes

A card for two challenges:



I embossed the Sentiment in clear and the snowflakes in white  PTI's Jingle all the Way, Fab Flakes,
Then did a water wash and dropped in color with my Gansai Tambi water colors.

CAS Watercolour December 2016

A card for CAS Watercolor 

Perfect timing for this technique.  I had just watched a video of Catherine Pooler's showing this technique.  Watercolor Resist  
I embossed in white and then used my Ziggs to drop color into it and then spritzed with water and let the colors work their magic.
I needed a break from Christmas stuff so went with is new stamp set from Neat & Tangled, Gardenia Blooms
Lil Inker Stitched Rectangles 
Framed with PTI's Pure Poppy on Vintage Cream cardstock

I actually made this one first and then decided to do one in the yellows, orange and red.  I love how they both turned out.

Thanks for stopping by.
