With Sympathy

Good morning everyone, I hope you week is off to a great start. Aside from the glorious weather we continue to have here in Souther Cali, I had a very good friend lose her father last week. So I kept her in mind when I made this card.

I started with the floral image in Basic black and embossed it with clear powder. Then I just colored the middle of each lilly with Yoyo yellow and the leaves are with Old olive. The next step was to go over the entire image with Versa mark and covered it again with clear embossing powder.

The next process was easy. Its easier to cover the rest f the paper by sponging an ink of choice, to not disturb the image you started with. I picked Baja breeze to not take away from the lillies. Then I added the water ripples by using a white gel pen to identify what parts of the images are in water. I think it came out quite nice.... after several drafts, lol. I hope you like it. I'll be back soon, tooddles.

Very Merry

Hi everyone, I hope you had a great weekend. I went to the craft store today and bought a beautiful collection of designer paper "Cloud 9" brand called Cocoa Mint.  I thought it would look unique and rustic to do a sort of christmas card that has the dusty orange with browns and blues. I added some chocolate chip ink on the edges to the paper to give it a little aged look. the very merry sentiment comes from SU! Sweet and short set. I hope you like it. Have a great week, tooddles!

Good Times!

Hello everyone, I hope you're enjoying your extra hour of sleep... I know I am, lol. It's Mojo Monday challenge time again and I'm excited about this sketch. Since I'm on the subject of sleep, I thought I'd make a dreamlike card with the clouds and all. I've had this rubber stamp from years ago from a place, that sadly is no longer in business, but I feel it's still current.

Also the cloud stamp was from the same little shop which I remember buying at the same time because I thought they looked really cool and not too cartoony. I used Baja breeze, Sage shadow and Whisper white cardstock. For the clouds behind kitty, I used a scallop punch and sponged Baja breeze ink all around him. The sentiment phrase comes from the SU! Great friend set. I hope you like it and have a great week! Tooddles.
