Summer Hibiscus

This card came about quite by accident.  I colored the image and then planned to add just a little watercolor to the edges but...................I dropped the cardstock into the puddle!    I actually kind of like how it turned out though.  This is D2D's new image and the hibiscus is my second most favorite flower in the world.  The first being a daisy!!  I stamped the flower embellishments onto shrink inkjet paper and then punched them out with a punch from Purple Daisy.

Fresh Cut in Pink and Orange

Here is the same image from D2D but using the colors red and orange.  I like doing the Saturday challenge and especially enjoy using the same image from the day before.  Once again I used Distress ink but on watercolor paper this time.

Fresh Cut

This week's image is a delightful little vase with flowers.  I distressed the image and used a paper stack from The Paper Studio.

Goin Buggy Challenge

I enjoy doing the Satreday challenges over at Designed 2 Delight but more often than not run out of time.  This week the  challenge is to make a card with a bug so I chose one of my favorites-a dragonfly.  This image is called Dragonfly Collage.  The sentiment is also one of Faith's.

Tiptoe through the Tulips

This is this week's image from Designed 2 Delight and is called Mary, Mary.  All I could think of was  Tiny Tim's  1968 Tiptoe Through the Tulips!  She kinda looks like a little flower child, doesn't she??

Creating with Collage

I am taking an online course (at Big Picture Classes) on Collage composition and having about as much fun as I have ever had with one of these classes!    The first card I made for the lesson on Asymetry and the next two I made for the Horizon class.  The third is for a Shrink Plastic swap and I printed the Louvre onto inkjet shrink paper from Darcies.  The fourth card I made for my granddaughter's birthday and on this one I included a butterfly I crocheted.

Spring Fence

This is a great image from Designed 2 Delight!  I was also able to practice my copic coloring for the online class I am taking.  The sentiment is from TLC Creations and is really one of my favorites.

Winter card

This is the little Skating Penguin image from Designed 2 Delight and I have used Paper Piecing to qualify for the Saturday DT challenge there.  I also used the Acrylic Emboss technique from Technique Junkies.  I was making 5 Christmas cards a month for the first three months of the year, but have gotten terribly behind with that.  Oh well, at least I am one up for this month.
