Simon Says Stamp Flickr Challenge #4

Hi everyone,
There's a new Challenge over in the Simon Says Stamp Flickr Group and this time, the theme is Water Coloring! Here is my card:


I love the little pup in this stamp and die set, so I inked him up and used water color pencils to color him. I used distress inks for the background, and my new Kuratake water colors for the die cut sentiment. It just sort of worked out that way, and it was fun!

If you're interested in joining in the challenge, go Here to check it out! The prize is a $50.00 Gift Card from Simon Says Stamp for the randomly drawn winner...deadline for this challenge is Thursday, 9:00am EST October 30th, so there is plenty of time :)

I am also entering this card in the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge for the theme 'Anything Goes'.


Thanks so much for stopping by,

Barb

Addicted to Stamps Challenge #118



Hi there Blog Friends,
Once again, it's Team A's turn to post our inspiration cards for this week's challenge at Addicted to Stamps! Our theme this week is 'Holiday', and I have chosen to create two cards...one for Thanksgiving, and one for Christmas. Here is my first card:






For the flowers on this card, I used the rock n' roll technique for PTI's stamps and dies 'Mums the Word' collection, and the sentiment is from Hero Arts 'Thankful for You' stamp set.
_________________________________________________________





For my 2nd card, I used the stamp and die set 'Holiday Village' from Poppy Stamps. I colored in the houses and trees with Copics, then stacked 3 layers of the die cuts to add dimension. The sentiment is from MFT.

So, if you need to get some holiday cards done, I hope you'll grab your stamps and ink, and play along with us for this week's Challenge! My team mates have created some amazing cards, and our Sponsor for this challenge is Eureka Stamps. The prize for the winner is your choice of 3 Digital Stamps!

Thanks so much for stopping by today ~

Hi everyone,
I hope you are all doing well! I've had a rough day...around lunch time, I received a call from a sweet friend letting me know that my email account had been hacked! Suffice it to say that I have a lot of work to do switching over to a different account, but I will post an update here when I'm all set :)



On the lighter side, I created a card for the current challenge at CAS(E) This Sketch. The sketch was created by N@ Ali, and with some new goodies, I couldn't wait to get started:  
 


I decided to flip the sketch 90 degrees, as I thought it would work better for this new stamp set by Clearly Besotted. I used pastel shadow inks on each one, and added a few small clear gems just to jazz it up a little. I also added my brand new Watermark created by Kylie Purtell ~ It was a special gift to all of us on her Design Team! I Love it!!!

A special thanks to all of you who let me know here and at the Hero Arts Flickr Group that my email was compromised...you girls ROCK! You really do!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by ~
