SplitCoast Stampers CC476

I made this for the color challenge over on split coast.  The colors are wisteria wonder, pear pizzazz and primrose petal and for dessert, gold metallic rub.  Photographed weird! I used markers to color the stamps and then spritzed with water before stamping. Embossed image and then put gold metallic rub where I pleased. Didn't like the white in the bg so sponged on the pear pizzazz. Butterfly done in all the colors and some gold, too and then a clear coat of shine painted over it. Some sheer ribbon to finish it off and heated to distress it some. I used Unity Stamps...donna peony and art & possibility.


Launching of our craft blog~Mountain Plains Crafters

Good day to everyone in blogland!  So excited to be hosting our first challenge over at Mountain Plains Crafters. Today we chose to go with an inspiration photo I took of a beautiful flower arrangement at the Mirage in Vegas. 
Here it is below

In stazon I stamped my Inkadinkadoo tulips and then added the Unity itty bitty Big Summertime Bouquet on watercolor paper. Next, I used watercolor crayons and some reinkers mixed with water to paint my image. To increase the vibrancy of the colors, I clear embossed the entire image. The sentiment is from the itty bitty as well. So ribbon tabs and pretty brads and some distressing to finish it off. Play along with us and load your card up on our FB page Mountain Plains Crafters to be eligible to win a prize...winners picked a week from today.

Mojo Monday 339 sketch

Happy Monday to everyone out in blogland!!! Home and happy to get my crafting on! I decided to play in the Mojo Monday sketch challenge found here.   I used Unity's KOM for March kit. I love this dp that my neighbor gave me from Hobby Lobby. I used the cover page so I no longer know what it is called! I cut the butterflies out of the paper as well and layered them. The two strips are embossed with brick ef.

Have a lovely day!

Wishy washy believe

This was made for the mix challenge on SCS. I sprayed water all over my mixed media paper and then with a paint brush applied ink in only orange, distressed blue jeans and lavender. I masked for the black and did a mirror image for the lighthouse.
My sentiment is from a new set at Unity called Empowered Words by Donna Downey and the lighthouse is from MFP's Silhouette mini selections.

Natural feathers SCS CAS262

The usual! Started out this Monday morning early...before 5 AM. Ugh. Oh well!  I do enjoy getting up early. I get to see the beautiful Colorado sunrise. The CAS challenge on splitcoast was an inspiration photo.
I went a bit literal with the inspiration! The dessert today was to use something natural. I couldn't think of anything natural in my craft room so I skipped it!
The wood grained embossing folder was inked up with walnut and then parchment paper was embossed. The feathers were stamped in versa mark and embossed in white. The sentiment was stamped and then cut into the three words.

Some Unity Cards

A quickie card I made at the end of January. Some dp and some fun embellies

This card was made with my serendipity paper I made for the TLC on SCS this past Monday. Taking coordinating scraps of dp, ripping them into various sizes and then I glued them on an 8.5 x 11 sheet of thin card stock....my third card with the paper. I did this using the sketch on SCS this week. Loving me some Unity!

SCS TLC470 & MOJO334

I had so much fun making this paper....the TLC on SCS was serendipity. Taking scraps of paper and gluing them randomly onto card stock. I used an 8.5 x 11 sheet of card stock and this was my second project with this technique. My first card is below. I used My Mind's Eye dp and three Unity itty bitty sets....Splendid Things, Life is so Good and Vintage Handwritten. Gold and brown ep, a brad and scalloped circle punches to make the sentiment.


Same as above for supplies but on this I used gold glittery ep on the dragonfly.
