    Let’s celebrate with Pinkfresh Studio

    Hello my lovely friends Todays card is for the current Pinkfresh Studio Challenge: watercolor I took a panel of Watercolour cardstock and used distress inks in spun sugar, worn lipstick and picked raspberry along with water and used ink smooshing to create my panel.  The key for depth is to dry the paper and add layers.

    Gold Heat Embossing with Simon Says Stamp

    Hi friends. Sorry for the radio silence, I am currently battling illness.  I have antibiotics so all should be better soon.  The month has flown by and it’s now reminder time at The Flower Challenge: Monochrome.  So either black, white,grey or one colour or shades of one colour. For this card I have gone for gold with white and vellum.  Lots of heat embossing of Simon Says Stamp products using their Folk dance stencil for the background with images, dies and sentiment from their lovely spring set. Some white nuvo drops were added for accents. I hope you like the card and will join us at The Flower Challenge.
