So nice to see you here today.
Phew! Saturday again!! Gosh, this day seems to come around faster and faster each week!
I was a little late commenting on people's cards this week because we have been non-stop taking our guests out and being the host and hostess with the most-est whilst at home. I intend to make time every day this week to keep on top of that though.
We do still have a few weeks of guests being at our house....and that may extend out through October if my Mum and sister decide they miss me. But before we know it winter will be upon us so we must make the most of our fantastic weather at the moment.
Anyway....Saturday... That means a brand new
This week is colour week .....which I initially completely forgot so got all arty with a few non-challenge theme colours on my cards and now I will have to save those to post another time. We've started calling that 'doing a Chrissie' ha! ha! (because she tends to forget one layer on one layer week).
Anyway, our COLOUR theme is:
Can't wait to see what you make this week.
As usual, I have 3 cards
1) Water Colour background
I'd like to pop this one in at Addicted to Stamps and More - CAS
Moo-Mania - Nature's Beauty
City Crafter - Birthday Wishes
I adored making this card - and it was SO quick to do (yes, this is my quickie card).
Cut a piece of watercolour paper to the size of a coloured card blank ( mine is turquoise). Wet one half of the paper and gently pounce distress stains in seedless preserves, salty ocean and lucky clover onto the wet area.
Dry with a heat gun, but whilst drying, spritz with water to create a few areas of interest in the form of droplet marks.
When dry, stamp the flowers (repeatedly to create the height) from Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz collection Mini Bouquet set in archival black ink and dry this.
Stamp the sentiment from Sweet Dixie Big Sentiments set in archival black ink too.
Use a white pen to add a few highlights to the flowers.
Adhere the water colour paper to the card blank.
2) Doggie Thanks
I'd like to pop this one in at Little Red Wagon - Let's Get Inky
Tuesday Throwdown - Clean and Simple
I just had to ink up this image when it arrived this week. I am a sucker for the 'crazy' stamp sets! I think he looks rather smart in his peacock colours, don't you?
Watercolour it with distress markers in broken china, peacock feathers, blueprint sketch, wilted violet, seedless preserves, weathered wood, mustard seed and carved pumpkin.
Cut the image out using the Lawn Fawn large stitched circles die.
The edge on the purple card was created using Sizzix lables 4 die. This was attached to the turquoise card blank with 3d foam pads and the image was also attached to that with 3d foam pads.
The sentiment was cut from white card using Marianne Creatables die LR0224.
3) UTEE Peacock Feathers
I'd like to pop this one in at Creative Moments - Anything goes with a twist of wedding/anniversary.
When I had my melt pot out a few weeks ago I created this piece for this challenge.
Ink the Texture Treads mold called fancy feathers with versamark ink, then dust it with Perfect Pearls powders in forever green, forever blue, forever violet and turquoise.
Pour the hot melted UTEE into the mold and let it cool and set before removing it from the mold.
The tiny die tag is a die that I have had for ages and I have no idea what the make or name of it is, sorry.
The sentiment is from Acid Drops and Whatnots square ornamental frames set. It was inked in versacolour #28 pacific.
The sentiment die is attached under the thin ribbon, and the lovely sparkly, pearly UTEE image was added to the card blank.
Please remember to hop on over to our challenge blog to see the amazing creations that my fellow teamies have provided for you this week - and I bet there are more on their personal blogs too.
Have a wonderful week, whatever you are up to.
Thanks for your visit.
