Freshly Made Sketches Meets Color Me

Today I am playing with Watercolor Wings once again, along with Butterfly Basics. These two sets compliment each other very well and the Coordinating dies also go together. When I seen the color combo for this weeks challenge at 
Color Me, this butterfly set immediately came to mind.  Isn't that a gorgeous combo for that butterfly?!

To make my card I used a watercolor wash for my background and Inktense pencils on the image. To finish it off I spritzed it with some Heidi Swapp color shine.

A Card for Clara

Today I am playing with The Stamps of Life, I used the lady bug and die from the Sizzix Ladybug set and the sentiment and hearts are from the ladybugs2love set.

I made this card for a little 9 year old, Clara who is battling cancer, she has an inoperable brain tumor. I don't really know her, I know her great aunt but I am sure she would love some cards and I hope she like ladybugs. If you would like to send her some card contact me and I will give you an address.

Todays card share is another using the Crayon Rubbed Embossing technique. I used the flower from the set You've Got This. I started with a A2 sized card front for the technique and then cut a frame out of it for the flower which I embossed on vellum and cut out.

CAS-ual Chic

Today I am playing with the Watercolor Wings set for the new challenge CAS-ual Chic, the utterly adorable layers challenge.

The embossing on my card may look a little different, it's a technique I am using in my technique class tomorrow. It's crayon rubbed embossing and it's super fun and I love the results.
