Thank you so much

This card is for two challenges, although there is a third challenge that occurred when I ripped the legs off the poor birdie when I was pulling it off the acetate sheet. I put the two halves together on the stamp block, and I don't think you can tell, can you?
The bird was coloured with copic markers, and the sentiment stamped in two colours of Simon Says Stamp ink, Cobblestone and Fog. 
Challenges

Ballerina


I've been busy colouring  his sweetie today. Once for a young friend who has just danced beautifully, and another (this one) which I'll enter into a couple of challenges. Hero Arts TicTacToe challenge finishes today and this card includes circles, birthday and a favourite colour. Also over at Simon Says Stamp the Wednesday challenge is Anything Goes.
The image is from the Online Card Classes copic class and the image was coloured with copics markers.

Virginia's View Ombre/ Monochromatic Challenge

Keeping with the same stamp as I used in my previous post, I tried colouring it with only one colour, "Tea Dye" distress inks in three layers. I'm super happy with this turned out, and am pleased to enter it into the Virginia's View Ombre/Monochromatic Challenge. Once again, I embossed it in white, then coloured the whole piece, then sections of it, letting the ink dry between coats. Water colouring really suits me, as it can flow and do its own thing. I can't believe how much colour variation I could get from the one ink.

Hero arts Tic Tac Toe Challenge

Hero Arts have such a clever challenge on at the moment. It's called the Tic-Tac-Toe challenge and I've chosen three things in a row to base my entry on. I chose watercolour, birthday theme and heat embossing. I stamped the background large flowers from Hero Arts and heat embossed them in white. I then coloured the images in two layers of distress inks in Picked Raspberry, Worn Lipstick, and Tumbled Glass, first giving a general wash, then filling in specific areas. I heat embossed the sentiment in white on black card stock, and attached it with dimensional tape. This stamp is an absolute favourite of mine. I hope you like the card as much as I do!

Joy to the Woods


I'd like to share a card that I made with Lawn Fawn's Joy to the Woods stamp set. The image was stamped and coloured using distress inks on Tim Holtz watercolour paper.

This card is going to be entered in the  Lawn Fawn Lawnscaping Challenge. The current challenge is to use critters on the card and I have chosen just a single critter!
I hope you enjoy the card.
