Just wanted to say.....Colour Me!


This card came about because I was smitten with 
a tag on "Tag you are it..." Challenge..

 I wanted to make an oval tag...
A novel idea I thought....
then I though of this great large sentiment
and the flowers...
and then I got carried away and stuck it all
on a card....
LOL.....
Sometimes it happens.  
You start to go somewhere..and end up in a whole
other direction!





The Wonderful ladies cooked
up some AMAZING
inspiration!
And they are having a DT call
too...check it out!



Supplies:
Hero Arts Hello Flowers
Stampin' Up! Let your Hair Down (Hostess) Retired?
Stampin' Up! Blackberry Bliss Ink
Memento Tuxedo Black

Now it is your turn to get crafty!..........

ColourQ meets CAS(E) this Sketch!




VERY Clever sketch by 
Chrissy Larson!
WOW.....I had to really get my thinking cap
 on for this one.
I like my cards to look like I 
am not trying too hard to fit the CAS(E) this sketch...
But be Inspired by the sketch..
Sometimes a fine line....
I think for awhile...and then it came to me


Personally....I think I nailed it. LOL!





This is a card inspired by a card made by
Jennifer Rzasa - Our Change of Art
in PaperCrafts Vol. 35 No. 3 (page 22)
She made this very crisp clean adoption card...A subject
dear to my heart as we have adopted.. 
 I wanted to CASE it
Someday.

Ellen's Pin Sights Challenge


This Challenge is MONTHLY and based
on the Pinterst inspired photo in the
 Ellen's Classroom Blog






I made my design and white embossed, then I took 2 acrylic blocks, one I loaded with a puddle of water, the other I stamped the ombré ink pad on one half, and the other the hero ultra pink.  I loaded my waterbrush with water and quickly swooshed it around the image, slowly grabbing a teeny bit if color on the tip, lightest to darkest.. Then coming in later to add some dark touches near the bloom centers and where ever else I wanted to have darker areas of contrast.. I tried to hug the edge of the outer side of the images the best I could.


To JOIN in, you MUST use 
Ellen's Essentials products and add the 
Pin Sights badge to your blog!
This is an AWESOME way to have your Chance to win a RANDOM DRAW
for $50 STORE Credit, Woot Woot!!!
