First up is Challenge #138 at my place for inspiration, StampNation. They provided an inspiration photo, and here was where my brain and my supplies took me . . .
Using watercolor paper, I stamped the stems with a combination of green ink and Versamark and then embossed with clear embossing powder. The the dandelions were stamped in Versamark and then embossed with white detail embossing powder. The background was created using a mix of distress inks.
Second up is a card I created for the Freshly Made Sketches and Heart 2 Heart. The challenge at H2H was to create a card inspired by a movie. I decided to go with Wizard of Oz . . . Judy Garland . . . specifically the scene where she sings the inspiring song, "Somewhere Over the Rainbow." She's a country girl . . . was it before or after she fell into the pig pen that she sang the inspiring song? Here is the card I created using this week's Freshly Made Sketch . . .
The pattern papers from Jubilee were inked in brown ink. I then stamped using the Over the Rainbow stamp set to create a scene and stamp my sentiment pieces. And then I crumpled, crumpled and crumpled. I flattened it all out and I crumpled some more. And then more. And then lots more! Finally I inked. It gave it an aged and almost canvas look. I used a liquid glue to adhere, so I wouldn't lose my wrinkles!
Third for today is a card created for CASology. The challenge was "Stripes." This card was super easy . . . wide striped paper . . . striped ribbon . . . stripes in my "YAY" stamp.
Those wide stripes, that wide ribbon and the combination of yellow, black and white . . . LOVE!
