Hello Crafty Friends!!!
I've a a bit different style card to share with you all.
Stencils are super trendy now....I like using  them!
 Today I used Hero Arts large Lotus background stencil in a fun way !!!!
I always like the cool zentangle look...but I never tried it out , so today I did a bit of doodling with the stencil... 

First I sponged 3 colors of distress ink-- mustard seed, spiced marmalade and picked raspberry over the stencil.
Then keeping stencil in place I doodle some random designs with Copic Mutliliner pen.
Here is a close up look....
I'm happy with the results...it look great for a first attempt.
I also used the stencil on the cardbase for a tone-on tone look.
The lovely sentiment is from Winnie & Walter stamps.
I love the lil' sequins goody bag that comes with every Winnie & Walter order.
These sequins are from my recent order.

Hope you all like my card today!!!

Watercolors...

Pin It Now!
Hello Everyone!!!

I'm back with another B'day card.
Sometimes cleaning is fun!!!
How ??? While cleaning my Heidi Swapp color shines today I made this card...
 Sometimes the color shine bottle nozzles get clogged, so I was cleaning them with a baby wipe, after while the baby wipe looked so pretty with the mix of colors.....that's how I got the idea of this water colored background!!!
I used Color Shine mists and water for the background...its super fun !!!
The colors are perfect for Spring time.
The die is from Papertrey Ink... it!!!
I'm not sure if you can see it in the pic, I have added a vellum layer around the diecut frame, so that the background behind the diecut is much more vibrant than the other parts. It is very pretty in real.
I also added lots of sparkle to diecut part with Wink of Stella glitter pen. There were some diecut stars from previous projects, they were the perfect lil' embellishments for this card.
