More Distressing

Another for the same challenges as last post!

JUGS - Distressing
Tombow - Book Page Inspiration
CASology - Cue Word - Book

Using more Core'dinations cardstock - Shattered Collection and Tim Holtz Distress Inks.   Embossed the background then lightly sponged Distress Ink over the raised surfaces.  Sponged more ink around the orange panel.  Stamped the image onto the book page and lightly sponged.  Layered the Grommet Tag after cutting out the middle, over the image piece.  Colored the flower with Inktense watercolor pencils.  Die cut the leaves and sanded the edges.  Attached the image piece with brass brads.  Tombow Multi used to glue everything in it's place.

Nautical Blue

The challenge at JUGS this week is to create something using Monochromatic Blues

The ship image is from an old SU set.  Stamped the ship in Memento Nautical Blue onto Gina K Little Boy Blue then colored the ship and sails with Inktense Watercolor Pencils and sponged TH Distress Ink Weathered Wood around the edges.  Layered onto some Gina K In The Navy cardstock, added a strip of washi tape and some knotted navy/white baker's twine.  Then layered onto some blue Core'dinations that I distressed the edges.  The background is some more Core'dinations, this one is Shattered which was embossed with a Sizzix folder.  Card base is the same Little Boy Blue that the image is on.
Thanks for looking!

You Rock!

I made this for 3 challenges this week:
The color challenge at CAS-ual Fridays

I used the sketch from JUGS to make this anniversary card.


I had received this cute Precious Moments image years ago through Wish RAK at Splitcoaststampers.
Colored the image with Inktense Water Color Pencils and water brush.  Stamped the little Love sentiment with Memento Nautical Blue ink, punched it out and layered on a red circle punch and onto a blue Tim Holtz Tiny Tags and Tabs circle tag.  Added the fun little arrow that I have been dying to use.  Added 3 little red heart gems.  Cardstock used:  Coredinatons card base, Gina K Denim Blue, Neenah Solar White and AC Moore Cherry Red.  Dp is My Minds Eye.
Thanks for taking a look!
