Watercolour masking

Hiya! Quick post from me as I have a poorly little lady with me :-( Here's a card I started a few weeks ago and have only just got around to finishing. It's using this tutorial from Kristina Werner using masking fluid to draw a circle, then splotch in Distress Inks and water so they blend together. Then, once everything was dry and I had rubbed away the masking fluid, I used the same colours of ink and flicked little splatters over the top along with water and some white misting ink. Once that was dry I stamped and embossed what I think is my fave sentiment stamp ever, over the top, and matted everything to a purple card base.

I'm going to enter this into these challenges; Addicted to CAS Distress, AAA Challenges Watercolour Rain, Viginia's View Embossing and Sieze the Birthday Anything goes option. I hope you like it, thanks for looking!

Supplies;

Ink - Distress Inks 'Seedless Preserves', 'Chipped Sapphire' & 'Peacock Feathers'

Sentiment - Mama Elephant 'Make a Wish'

Other - white embossing powder, watercolour masking fluid & Studio Calico white spray mist

Cardstock - Stampin' Up 'Blackberry Bliss'

Then I used the positive & negative pieces to make 2 different looks. I hope you like them, all the supplies are listed below. Thanks for looking!

For You...Happy Birthday

Good morning! I hope you've had a good week! Ours has been busy and full of germs but not too bad :-) I've made a last minute card for this months Make the Day Special sketch. I've used an older Mama Elephant stamp set and some funky office style papers from Doodlebug. I made the two panels slightly wonky and flicked some black ink over the card to give a sort of 'messy desk' look - in my head anyway! ;-) I've also used this weeks Colour Me... colour scheme and Seize the Birthday Anything Goes challenge. I hope you like it, thanks for looking and have a lovely Sunday! xx

Supplies;
Stamp - Mama Elephant 'Type It'
Papers - Doodlebug 'Take Note'
Sentiment - Winnie & Walter 'Big, Bold & Happy'
Ink - Distress Ink 'Black Soot' & Stampin' Up 'Real Red'
Cardstock - Stampin' Up 'Real Red' & 'Basic Black'

CAS(E) this Sketch & Fusion challenge

Afternoon! I hope you're having a good weekend! I've had a little card making time this morning and made this card. I really like this weeks CAS(E) this Sketch sketch so I really wanted to join in, and I also love this weeks Fusion challenge colour scheme - it's sort of modern retro looking - love it. I really liked the vase of flowers in the photo too so I made one with some Clearly Besotted goodies, the new stamp set Simple Silhouettes, which I stamped in a cluster and fussy cut. Then I used the vase die from Flower Arrangement cut out 6 times, layered up and given a coat of glossy accents for a nice shiny look. I think white enamel accents would have been better but I don't have any - yet ;-) I hope you like it, thanks for looking!





Supplies;
Papers - My Minds Eye 'Fine & Dandy - Boy'
Dies - Clearly Besotted 'Flower Arrangement' & Nestabilities 'Circles'
Stamp - Clearly Besotted 'Simple Silhouettes'
'Ink - Stampin' Up 'Pumpkin Pie'
