Are You There?

 
 
Greetings! I have been away from blog land since early July and it sure does feel good to be back again. I have missed making art and participating in my Design Teams. I am happy to kick off my return with this post for the October Challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges where the theme this month is "Book Pages" and we are asked to incorporate a book page into our project.  Having moved over the summer and my art studio still in storage, I was thrilled to be able to quickly access a piece of vintage book page in one of the first boxes I broke open.  The stamped image is by Lost Coast Design and the sentiment is by A Cat's Life Press.  I hope that you will stop over to FSC to see all the gorgeous makes by the Design Team and then consider creating a project of your own to share with us at FSC. Remember, as we are a stamping challenge, stamping most be the focal point of your project. And, as always, one lucky participant will be selected to win a stamp from our generous vendor, Ink Art Designs.  Best wishes! Yvonne

A Strong Woman



Greetings! It is time, once again, for a new challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenge. The theme for July, selected by our leader, Shirley, is "Use Your Inks!" I hope that you will stop by to see all the beautiful samples that the Design Team created to inspire you and that you will consider creating a piece of your own to share with us.  Remember, one lucky participant will be selected to win a stamp image selected for them by our generous sponsor, Ink Art Designs! Just remember that we are a stamping challenge, so the focal point of your creation must include stamping!
For my own design, I began by spraying a water color panel with three different Distress Spray Inks. The focal image was stamped on scrap cardstock and then colored in with more ink using TomBow Markers and a water brush pen.
Thanks, as always, for dropping by. I truly value your support.  Best, Yvonne

Liberty and Freedom

 
Greetings! Its a new month and time for a new challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu! The theme for July is "RED, WHITE and BLUE!"
 
I am in the process of moving, so my card is quite simply done. I sprayed the water color base with Festive Berries and Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink Sprays. I added clip art by Gecko Galz and a Tim Holtz Paper Doll, along with sentiments by Artistic Outpost. Some twine, ribbon and sequin stars complete my card.
 
We are excited to see what you dream up to share with us! Thanks for stopping by.  Hugs, Yvonne


Keep on keepin on!

 
Greetings! I'm back today with a new post created for the latest challenge over at Inkspirational.  This time we have a photo challenge!



 
I hope that you will stop over to see all the cool designs the design team have dreamed up for you and then create one of your own to share with us!
 
For my own cared, I worked with Distress Inks, images from Stampotique and some embellishments on hand. A cheery card to send to someone who needs his or her spirits lifted!

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.
 
Thanks for stopping by!

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
