ME and me- watercolour birthdays

Hi Everyone!

Hope you all are well- today I am participating in a challenge that I have never done before- the Mama Elephant and me challenge!

So without further a do, here is my card!
I inked up my new Summer Garden Stamp set from ME and SSS, and stamped the flower images in Hero Hues black ink (which is waterproof). I did the same with the sentiment (from SSS). I then used some of my ink pads and an aqua brush to add a watercolour wash over the flowers. 

I added a few flicks of colour with the brush, added a few clear sequins and adhered the card panel onto a black card base, and that was my card all done!

hope you likey!

Make it Monday #174- Diamond Stamped Wallpaper- take two!

Hi everyone,

As promised, here is my second card for this challenge- Using the 'Happy Harlequin' Stamp set from PTI. It is just perfect to create a diamond stamped wallpaper….Probably because the set contains DIAMOND shapes in various patterns (duh). 

This card is slightly different to my usual style- I almost always base my card on a white front panel and then work from there. It is heavily inspired by one of the PTI design team members…can you guess which one?

 If you, like me, are a PTI fan- it won't take to long to dawn on you… (*cough*).

Alright, enough of that. Lets have a look see:

As it is not my usual style, it took me a while to like it. But as I added the sentiment strip and the gems, it grew on me, and I really like it now. Very inspired to try this card out using other colour combinations.

Hope you likey!

Make it Monday- Diamond Wallpaper Stamping

Hi Everyone!

I am participating in the latest Make-it-Monday Challenge over on Nichole Heady's blog. This week Ashley Cannon newell shared a diamond stamped wallpaper. Now, I don't know why I forgot that I own the Happy Harlequin stamp set (which is pretty much made for this technique!) but I did. And so I had to be creative and try and come up with a stamp that I could use to create this design. So I went with that little row of teardrops in the 'Happiness in Bloom' set (which is one of my all time favourite floral sets). So here is my card :)

I was pretty happy with the way this little number turned out- What do you think? I may get some time tonight to have a play with my Happy Harlequin set and I'll probably create another card for this challenge a little later on. Thanks for stopping by!
