Alphabet Challenge- B for Boy's Card
Loved making this and started off with a square white card piece. I used earthy distress ink pads and sponged on the colours using browns, mustard yellow, dark red and dark green for the background. I took glossy cardstock and stamped the image of the boy with his best friend and used the same colours to cover that piece. I stamped the filigree and fern stamp around the edges to just give a hint of the images as a frame. I layered the card in similar colours ending with a nice copper cardstock. I used evergreen punch in earth colors. I stamped the gears and used a glitter pen to colour the image, cut it out and glued everything together ending with the gem and crystals. This stamp reminded me of my cousin when he was little and he had a similar dog, named Fritz, that he loved.

Stamping Sensations- Say it with flowers
Now to something girlie. I missed out on the color Throwdown- again but it was fun to make even though I am not a pink gal. I took 3 alcohol inks of light pink, strong pink and plum, and placed droplets right on the card that had alcohol solution already on to make this effect. I stamped the Roses in white and embossed them in white I took my gelatoes(they are creamy crayons) in light pink and green painting the colours on with water. I fussy cut them out and adhered it to the layered cardstock with the last one embossed using the cuddlebug. That last card was also coloured up by just lightly brushing the purple plum ink pad across the embossed image to highlight the raised images. I embossed the saying in white and finished it all off. I am sending this card to a co-worker...just because.

My friend, out west, is having a hard time because of this Covid19 because he can't stand staying at home during the day. He loves the ocean, water, snorkeling so I created this card for him. I took alcohol inks using some alcohol pearls I bought and love because it gives a shimmery effect. I have this under water stencil so I used parts of it to create this image by taking the paste and spreading it thinly across the image like icing a cake. I lifted it off and it turned out quite well. I painted the image with paints I have in shimmer effect. The nice blue cardstock I have that also has a nice shimmer (the word for the day), was embossed with shells and inked up with purple ink by lightly brushing it across. I took my pearl purple embossing powder and put it on the image. It sticks to wear the ink was so I can heat emboss it to have that nice look. I glued all the card pieces together and a 3rd card is done.
Have a beautiful day!
