Red, Blue and Yellow...

 
Greetings and thank you for your faithful visits to my blog! Back today with a card I made for the newest challenge of "Primary Colors" for Inkspirational.  I hope you will stop over to see all the varied (and stunning) work created to inspire you by the rest of the Design Team and then create a piece of your very own to share with us.
 
 
 
I must say that I cannot remember the last time that I worked in primary colors....I began with red and yellow Brusho Crystals and sprayed water on them on water color paper.  The images are all by Stampotique and were colored in the Towbow Markers. Loving the new Ranger Enamels used to accent my card.  Thanks for stopping by.
 
Best, Yvonne

Heaps of Pearls

 
Greetings! Back again with a post for the new challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenge, where the new theme is "Resist."
 
I cannot remember the last time I created a piece using resist.  I really struggled, and almost gave up and then realized I was trying to use too heavy of inks. Once I broke out my sorely neglected Distress Ink Pads the images finally revealed! The shells are by Red Lead Paperworks, and the stenciled coral is also by Red Lead, as are the sentiments.
 
I hope you will stop over to see what the rest of the design team has cooked up for you and then consider creating a piece of your own to share with us. Remember, one lucky participant will win a gift voucher from our sponsor, Flonzcraft.
 
Thanks for stopping by! Yvonne

Sunshine and Happiness

 
Greetings! It's time again for a new challenge over at Inkspirational.  This time, we are to use patterned or designer paper with an optional twist of stamping onto the patterned paper.
 
 
I hope you will stop over to see the fabulous, and varied, samples that the Design Team have dreamed up to inspire you.  For my own card, I began with a discarded panel from another project that wasn't working for me.  It was colorized with Gelatos. I tore up strips of designer paper and adhered them to the top and bottom of the panel. The bunny girl by Stampotique was stamped on white card and several different pieces of designer paper and then paper pieced together onto the panel. I added a Kate Crane image for Stampotique to the background panel and then colored the images in with TowBow Markers and Posca Pens. The chit chat stickers complete my panel, which was matted and adhered to the card base. Thanks as always for stopping by.  I really appreciate your visits. Best, Yvonne

Serendipity

 
Greetings! Time once again for another challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu! The Pink Team selected "Florals" for their theme. I hope you will stop over and check out all the beautiful projects and be inspired to create one of your own to share with us.
 
Mine began with a water color panel. I laid a Stencil Girl Stencil on the panel and sprayed Sunshine Yellow and Pink Bubblegum Dylusions Ink Sprays through the stencil.  I picked up the stencil, turned it over and smooshed it around the rest of the panel to use up the excess in and fill in the panel.  The image and sentiment from Tim Holtz for Stampendous were stamped on scrap card, trimmed and water colored and added to the panel. The panel was matted and added to a card base. Thanks so much for stopping by.  Your visits and comments make my days! Best, Yvonne

Summer Fun

 
Greetings! It is time once again for a new challenge over at Inkspirational! This time we have a word prompt of "Dip."
 
 
All sorts of ways go with this word prompt! Being a lover of the beach, you can guess the direction I took! Just received this set of images from Cherry Pie Art Stamps and had fun stamping and watercoloring. I hope you will stop over and see all the gorgeous makes by the rest of the design team and then make one of your own to share with us! Thanks for stopping by. I always appreciate your visits and comments.  Best, Yvonne

Cityscape

 
 
Greetings! It's time for the latest challenge over at Inkspirational! As you can see from above, it is a Photo Inkspiration.  Isn't it cool? My design team sisters have really come up with some exceptional cards that they were inspired to create. I hope you will consider crafting a card or other project of your own and submit it to share with us.
 
My card was created using stamp images from Stampotique. As I stamped the images onto hot press watercolor paper, I simply could not resist the urge to pull out my TomBow Markers and water color a bit. I love the edgy feel of my design team sisters' cards, though. But the color is already laid down! Thanks so much for stopping by. Best, Yvonne

Under the Sea


Greetings! It is once again time for another challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenge.  This time, the theme is "Under the Sea." I hope you will stop over to FSC to check out the gorgeous pieces the rest of the Design Team dreamed up to inspire you and then consider creating a piece of your own to share with us. One lucky participant will be selected to win a gift voucher from our sponsor FlonzCraft. Please remember that we are a stamping challenge. You will find complete rules over at FSC.

For my own piece, I began with a water color panel and added water colors in multiple shades of blue and green.  I then stenciled several shades of Dylusions paints through a Stencil Girl Stencil. The colors were a bit vivid so I sprayed the whole panel with Linen Dylusions Ink Spray. I stamped various stamps by Oxford Impressions onto tissue paper and collaged them onto the panel. A few shells were added for dimension. Thanks so much for stopping by. Best, Yvonne
