By the Sea

Greetings! Its a new month and a new theme over at Eclectic Ellapu.  The theme this month is "By the Sea." I hope that you will check out all the inspired pieces by the Design Team and then create a piece of your own to share with us.  For my own make, I used several sets of images from Red Lead Paperworks. The background was filled in with water color and a few small seashells complete my card.  Thanks for stopping by. Hugs, Yvonne

Be strong, Hold on

Greetings! It is time, once again, for a new challenge over at Inkspirational! This time, we have a photo to inspire us. I love this photo! Probably as it suits my decorating style.

For my project, I created a card. I began by placing a stencil by Stencil Girl over a water color panel. I then sprinkled several shades of blue Magicals over the stencil and sprayed with water. The focal point at the bottom is an image by Dina Wakely as are the sentiments.
I hope that you will stop over to see what the rest of the design team has created and then create a project of your own to share with us.  Hugs, Yvonne

Mademoiselle de Paris

Greetings! It is time again for a new challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenge.  This time, our theme is all about "Feminine."  You will be absolutely delighted with the varied samples of the design team and we hope that you will be inspired to create a project of your own to share with us at FSC.  Remember, stamping must be the focal point of your project. One lucky participant will win a free stamp courtesy of Ink Art Designs

For my own project, I began with a water color panel. I spritzed various colors of Distress Inks onto the panel and added water. The beautiful stamp is by Carabelle Studio and stamped with archival ink by Catherine Pooler. The textured lace is a stencil by Tim Holtz as are the flowers. The ribbon is from my stash. Not my first thought, when thinking of feminine, but in the end, I went where my heart led and I am pleased.  Hugs, Yvonne

Later, Gator!

Greetings everyone.  I am here today with the June 2017 Challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu where the theme is "add a touch of pink or purple to your project."  I hope that you will pop on over to Eclectic Ellapu to see what the design team has dreamed up for you and then create and share a project of your own.  For my project, I stamped a flamingo and alligator by Stampotique and added Brushos and a sentiment, also by Stampotique.  I enjoyed making this one! Hugs, Yvonne

Lots of Windows!

Greetings! I can only think it has to do with losing Jack, but I must apologize for my delay in posting several projects that were due this weekend.  For my first post, I have created a card for the new challenge over at Inkspirational where the theme is "windows!" I do hope that you will pop on over to see the varied, and delightful offerings of the rest of the Design Team. 
After carefully looking through all my stamps and stencils, the only windows I had were huge (9"x12") so I opted to ink up this new to me stamp of a building with lots of windows by Paper Artsy.  I tried a new ink pad by Catherine Pooler.  All I can say is wow! If you struggle to get full coverage, struggle no more! The buildings were watercolored with TomBow Markers and I doodled around the border with an Ultrafine Sharpie. A few spritzes of Distress Ink splattered with a brush completes my card.  Thanks for everyone's patience.  Hugs, Yvonne
