We always think we'll have TIME!


Greetings! Back with a post for the new challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenge where the theme centers around "Time."

I hope that you will stop over to see what the rest of the design team have dreamed up for you and then consider creating a project of your own to share with us.  Please remember that we are a stamping challenge, so stamping needs to be the focal point of your project.  As always, our sponsor at Ink Art Designs will graciously provide a stamp to one lucky participant.


For my own card, I began by spritzing a water color panel with various Distress Ink Sprays.  I then stamped images from Visible Image onto the panel and doodled around the perimeter before matting the panel and adding it to the card front. 

Thanks, as always, for stopping by.  Hugs, Yvonne

Happy Halloween!



 
Greetings! It is time again for a new challenge over at Inkspirational! This time, it's to create a project with just "one layer."
 
 
 
Not sure why, but I find one layer cards extremely challenging! For my own creation, I worked with images by Oxford Impressions.  I colorized with Distress Inks and added a bit of Ranger Stickles and some doodling.  I hope you will stop over to see what the rest of the design team cooked up for you and then create a project of your own to share with us.  Thanks for stopping by!

Quoth the Raven


Greetings! I am several days behind in posting my project for the October Challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu.  Life sometimes gets in the way, doesn't it? I am grateful to Elaine for her patience.  The theme this month is: Dark/Dramatic Colors and/or Scary!
 
I chose to go with scary.  Black birds really creep me out, specifically in the fall. I began with an orange tag from Red Lead Paperworks, stamped the raven and sentiments, which are from Red Lead Paperworks, as well. I used Distress Inks to colorize and distress everything, and then assemble it onto the tag.
 
We look forward to seeing what you come up with for your own projects! Happy Crafting. Best, Yvonne

Something About Audrey

 
Greetings friends! I'm a bit behind with getting my post out for the new challenge over at Inkspirational where the theme is a word prompt "Hello."
For my own card, I used this iconic image of Audrey Hepburn by Deep Red. The sentiment is by Red Lead Paperworks.  I added a stencil by Stencil Girl over the focal image and spritzed with Rose Quartz Dylusions Ink Spray. The panel was doodled, matted and added to a card base. I hope that you will stop over to see what the rest of the Design Team has dreamed up to inspire you and that you will in turn create a project of your own to share with us.  Thanks, as always, for stopping by.  Best, Yvonne

To the Moon and Back

 
Greetings! I have been away for many, many weeks, though there have been some scheduled posts. I did not have my art supplies with me either, so after taking care of necessities, I treated myself to some time in my art studio. I decided to play along with the newest challenge over at Stampotique where the theme is "Only Blue." I inked up this darling rocket ship and passengers for the first time using Midnight Blue Staz On Ink and water colored it with several tints of Distress Ink. The panel was spritzed with Periwinkle Blue Dylusions Ink and the moon was masked with Frisket, but the ink bled through and I actually like it! Stars by NStudio for Rubber Moon and a splattering of sequins in shades of blue by Red Lead Paperworks completes my card. Thanks for stopping by and for leaving love and comments. Best, Yvonne

Dance Ballerina, Dance!

 
Greetings! It is time, once again, for a new challenge over at Inkspirational! This time, the challenge is to make a project based on the inspiration photo below.

 
Though my first thought was to go very similar to the photo above, in the end, I decided to go a bit more colorful. I grabbed a scrap piece of water color paper that had some mop up ink on it and using a Red Lead Paperwork stencil to trace around the edges before cutting the ballerina out.  The background was also created using a Red Lead Paperwork stencil. I doodled around the edges after distressing with Spun Pink Distress Ink and added some sequins for fun.  I hope that you will pop on over to Inkspirational to see what the rest of the design team has created and then share a project of your own with us.  Best, Yvonne

Time to Fly

 
Greetings! It is time, once again, for a new challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu, where this time the theme is Floral and Fauna and/or Nature.  For my project, I decided to use this gorgeous stamp from Indigo Blue of a butterfly. I colored it with water colors, added some sentiments by Red Lead Paperworks and splattered Golden Fluid Acrylics paint on the panel, which was then matted and added to a card base. Please stop over to EE to see the rest of the projects the design team have dreamed up for you and then we hope that you will create a project of your own to share with us.  Thanks for stopping by!
