Keep a Green Tree

 
 
 
 
 
Greetings! It is time for a new challenge over at Inkspirational where the theme this time is to create a project using small stamps.  I chose to use stamps by A Muse Studio. The bird is by Crafty Individuals.  I hope that you will drop over to see what the rest of the design team has created to share with you and then make one of your own to share with us.  Thanks for stopping by!

The Voice of the Sea

 

 
Greetings! Back again with a new post for the latest challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenge where the theme is "Seaside." Lots of ways to go with this theme, as you will see by the inspiration pieces created by the Design Team!
 
My own piece was created with images by Oxford Impressions, stamped in various colors of Archival Inks and tinted with Tom Bow Markers. The sea water was created with Magicals.  We hope that you will submit a piece of your own. One lucky participant will win a stamp image selected for them by our gracious sponsor, Ink Art Designs. Please remember that we are a stamping challenge, so stamping must be the focal point of your creation.

The Future

 
Greetings! I'm back today with a new post for two design teams.  The first is for Inkspirational where the theme this time around is "Power." You will see by viewing all the design team inspiration pieces that there are lots of ways to go with power! 
 
 
I chose to feature train locomotives, as they need a LOT of power to pull passengers and freight! What will you come up with for your own project? We look forward to seeing it!

My post is also for Eclectic Ellapu where the theme this time is "Anything Goes."

Thanks for dropping by! Best, Yvonne

Girl on a Swing

 
 
 
Greetings! It is time, once again, for a new challenge over at Inkspirational.  This time, we have a photo challenge, using the beautiful image above.  I hope that you will stop over to see what the rest of the design team dreamed up to inspire you and that you will consider making a piece of your own to share with us. 
 
I created my piece using pastels for the background, a bit of stenciling and some stamp images. I love how these challenges push me to create cards that I never would have thought to make!
 
Thanks for stopping by! Hugs, Yvonne

Dreamer, Doer, Thinker

 

Greetings! I am back again with a post for the latest Challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenge where the theme is "Floral."

I chose this beautiful floral stamp and sentiment by Donna Downey for Unity Stamps.  I water colored it with various watercolors and the center has some added bling with copper Stickles. The background was done with black embossing paste and a stencil from Tim Holtz.

I hope that you will stop over to see all the beautiful inspiration pieces by the rest of the design team and then consider make a piece of your own to share with us. Please remember that we are a stamping challenge, so your focal image must be stamped!

Our generous vendor Ink Art Designs has a stamp image to gift to one lucky participant. Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs, Yvonne

Now is the Right Time

 
 
Greetings! It is time once again for a new challenge over at Inkspirational! This time, its "Shades of Purple and Gold."


 
It gave me a chance to use some products for the first time. The background is done with Dylusions Ink Sprays. The stamp image is by Prima and the gold around the edges is done with "WOW" powder. I hope that you will stop over to look at all the other cool cards by the rest of the design team and be inspired to create a card of your own to share with us! Thanks for stopping by.  Best, Yvonne

Mother's Day

 
 
Greetings! With Mother's Day soon upon us, it is fitting that the new challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu is "Mother's Day!" For my own card, I pulled out this image by Pam Carriker for Stampington, as I found to be very nurturing. The quote is by Alison Bomber for Paper Artsy. The background stencil is by Tim Holt and the background panel was sprayed with Dylusions Ink. I hope that you will stop over to see what the rest of the design team have created to inspire you and we hope that you will consider sharing a creation of your own over at Eclectic Ellapu! Thanks for stopping by!
