Blue Monochromatic Christmas Card

Hello Crafty Friends,

Do you ever make a card, mixed media project, art journaling page, scrapbook layout or any other crafty project that seem to just exceed your expectations?

I must admit that is how I felt when I stood back and admired my blue Monochromatic Christmas card that I am entering into Merry Monday Christmas Challenge and the LAST Mojo Monday sketch challenge. (I am so sad to hear that Mojo Monday is closing it's site but I understand that Julie must do what's right for her and her family. I wish her nothing but the best.)

I wanted to walk you through how to make this card. This quick card can be done easily in 20 minutes. Building up the background is the longest part! Check the bottom of the post to see the completed card!

Watercoloring with Hero Arts

Hey fellow crafters,

How are we doing this fine day?

I am here to bring you a great One Layer-esque Card. All stamps are from Hero Arts. I like the sliver of blue showing on the outside of the card it's just enough to tie back into bird.  

I used all Distress Inks to stamp the layered images and the frame. Then I would take a water-brush and soften out each layer to give it a more watercolored feel. This card could be made 15 minutes or less. Just use a heating tool in between the layers. I decided to let each layer air dry.

I am really pleased by how it turned out. :)

Paper Smooches - May Challenge: Flowers

Hey crafty friends,

I hope you are enjoying your Memorial Day weekend. Today's forecast is all about clouds and rain but at least the weekend was nice! 

I have a great 10 minutes or less card for you today. A few outline stamps, a bold sentiment and two pattern papers is all you really need.

I am submitting this card into Paper Smooches: May Challenge which is Flowers. I got the layout idea from the Kraftin' Kimmie Monthly Sketch Challenge.
