Greetings! My post today is for the new challenge over at Inkspirational where are working with the Word Prompt "Urban." 
I have been fascinated recently with all the stamps and dies you can purchase around cityscapes! I guess I'm just a city girl at heart! My card was created with Gelatoes and a variety of stamp images from Stampotique. I really had fun with this one! I hope you will stop over to see the really cool makes of the rest of the Design Team and then create a project of your own to share with us.  Thanks for stopping by! Hugs, Yvonne

Go Wild or Go Home!

Greetings! It is time again for a new challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenge! The theme this time is to "Go Wild." Please visit FSC to see all the different directions the design team went for inspiration and then we hope that you will create a project of your own to share with us! I began with a piece of kraft paper. I had some left over paint from another  project and just wildly, with abandonment, squiggled paint onto the panel. It seemed like a perfect background for our challenge! The focal images and sentiments are by Crafty Individuals. The spotted matting was recycled from a shopping bag. We have a new sponsor over at Fashionable Stamping Challenge, our very own Dot Leathbridge, who's dream has come true with her very own shop called Ink Art Designs! Remember, ours is a stamp challenge, so stamping must be the focal point of your project. One lucky participant will win a  stamp from generous Dot! Thanks for stopping by!

Feathers Galore

Greetings! Late again with my post for Inkspirational! On vacation for a week and lost track of time!
This time, our challenge theme is the photo above.  I went with what I saw in the photo, feathers, and earth tone colors. I used my new Distress Oxide Inks and a very old stamp set from Stampington Company. I hope that you will check out the lovely inspiration pieces by the design team and then submit one of your own. Thanks for stopping by. Hugs, Yvonne

Road Trip!

Greetings and thank you for stopping by! My card today was created for the new challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu where the theme is "Anything Goes." That makes it very easy to play along! For my own card, I wanted to use a previously un-inked stamp by Technique Junkies. The background panel was inked with Distress Oxide Inks and overstamped with images by Artistic Outpost. I look forward to seeing what you share with us.  Hugs, Yvonne

Love Rocks!

Back again with a new post to share a card that I made for my son and his wife for their anniversary.  All images by Dina Wakley. I began with a water color panel and spritzed it with Distress Ink Sprays. The figures were stamped on scrap water color paper, trimmed, water colored and adhered to the panel. The panel was matted and mounted to a card base. Thanks for stopping by! Yvonne

April Showers

Greetings! My post today is for the current challenge over at Frilly and Funkie where the theme is April Showers.  I decided to go with the showers bring flowers motto! I inked up, for the first time, some foam stamps from Stampington Company with Prima Art Alchemy Sparks Paint and Archival Inks to create my water color background panel. The sentiment is by Oxford Impressions and the focal image is by Art Journey. I added some doodling and matting and mounted the panel to a card base. Thanks so much for stopping by! Yvonne

Greetings! The weeks roll by and already it is time for another challenge over at Inkspirational.  The theme this time is Graffiti Art! I had to look that one up on the Internet! Fortunately for you, the design team while give you lots of examples to inspire you!
For my own car, I began by stamping this cute little guy by Paper Artsy onto a water color panel.  I dropped several colors of Dr. PH Martin Inks onto the panel and then blew them around! The sentiments by Unity were stamped on scrap card stock and adhered to the panel. The panel was matted and adhered to a card base.
I look forward to seeing what you come up with for your project!  Thanks for stopping by! Best, Yvonne
