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

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

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! Best, Yvonne
