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.

#CardChallengeMashUp Number 1

Hello my fellow crafters,

Can you believe we are almost half way through 2017!!!! *o*

I hope this year has been going well for you. As for myself? I've been plagued with some health issues. I won't bore you with all the details but it's been a hard 6+ months for me. I am starting to feel like my normal self one day at a time which means I am finally getting back into crafting and creating. At least I had to YouTube to fill my crafting hunger! :)

Since, I had so much time on my hands I decided to check out some great craft and card challenges online. I made a document that broke down monthly and day specific challenges. Along with the rules and key things to know about each challenge. All these awesome challenges out there got my wheels spinning.

Why not create a personal challenge for myself to combine 3 challenges in ONE card project. I'm calling it the Card Challenge Mash Up!
