Trio of FLowers

Be sure to enter the challenge this month.  I printed this trio three times and colored one of each flower while leaving the others black and white.  I thought a scallop edge would work with the squares.  I used the same Copic colors on the sentiments that I used on the flowers and added Nuvo Crystal Drops.

Supplies:
Bugaboo Floral Trio Frame 1
QuicKutz Scalloped Squares Nested dies
Die-Namics Blueprints 11 (smile & TODAY)
Nuvo Crystal Drops Gloss Red Berry and Nuvo Crystal Drops Violet Galaxy

Flowers Are Popping UP All Over

I've been practicing coloring to show light shining on different shaped surfaces and I had a lot of fun with this particular image with lots of shapes to practice coloring.  First I made the card without a sentiment, but felt it was missing something and it was.  This would work for a Mother's Day card for a friend. 

First card without sentiment

Supplies:
Bugaboo Flower Shelf
Art Impressions Live Laugh Love (sentiment)
Copic markers
Elizabeth Craft Designs Garden Notes Stitched Rectangles

Versatile Vases

Dawn T here to share my sample for today.  Our theme this month is water...  So when my new Versatile Vases stamp set arrived I knew it would be prefer to use for my sample. 


I did some stamping and masking to add the flower from Fresh Freesia set to the vase.  I used the stencil that came with the vase to add some water.  I used a mixture of watercolour pens, Alcohol markers, and Prismacolor pencils.  I used Evening Grey ink to stamp the flower, vase and sentiment.

Do come and join us with your "water" projects

Water, Water Everywhere

Altenew
I hope you have been enjoying the "water" challenge here at Die Cut Divas.

My first card features a window scene which has a European feeling scene of houses out the window.  I die cut the cat from black paper and popped the cat up on top of the window (Window, sentiment and Cat are part of the Dancing in the Rain" stamp set)   The cat has a matching die.  This is my favorite and I may have to create a another window card.


And I did create another window card.  For some reason I really like working with this image, some kind of wanting to go visit Europe again.  I added the teacups (matching die) to connect the windows and perhaps the owners of the cats. This is the card I sent to my partner on the Card Chain Challenge.

Close-up of my card showing those cute tea cups.

My third card features the little girl dancing in the rain.  I used this same image on April 8th.  I have enjoyed using this wonderful stamp set as well as the dies that match.  I did not use the matching die for this card.

I hope you enjoyed catching the rain images in this "Dancing in the Rain" set.  You can catch me at A Bit of This and That.

Sunrise over the sea

This month's challenge theme is 
"WATER"
(rain, lakes, ocean, streams, rivers, dark clouds full of water, glass of water, tears), 
just have some sort of water on the card.

and our sponsor is Altenew

 Dawn T here today to share my "water" card.  


I recently saw a tutorial over at Splitcoaststampers about doing a sunrise scene.  I decided I'd try it with some Altenew stamps and inks.  I started by stamping the the water stamp  from Altenew "Be A Lighthouse" with Sapphire ink and then blended it with the same ink.  I then die cut a circle to use as a mask.  Then I took Altenew inks in - Honey Drizzle, Autumn Blaze, Heart Beat, Vineyard Berry and Cosmic Berry  I then stamp the lighthouse and gulls in Versafine Onyx Black.  The sentiment stamps are from the same set.  I used a die to cut out the panel and then used some of the dies to emboss around the panel  for some texture. 

Do come and join us with your water related creations.

I wanted to have some cards on hand that could be used for a sympathy card, or supporting a friend going through a rough time. This turned out better than I could have hoped, as stamping on vellum can be tricky.
