Pastel Rainbow

Today I have been inspired by two challenges, Scrapbook Boutique April 2017 Mood Board Challenge and Paper Smooches April 2017 challenge-Showers and have created a pastel rainbow card with sparkle.

The raindrops background was created using the Paper Smooches Luminous Spring stamp set and a variety of pastel inks. The clouds were stamped using the Luminous Spring and Paper Smooches Forest Whimsy stamp sets, silver heat embossed then filled with white glitter. The die cut rainbow card colours were made by swiping the stamp ink colours onto white card stock. The rainbow wishes sentiment was stamped and then heat embossed with clear sparkle embossing powder.

Supplies used:
Stamps: Paper Smooches Luminous Spring, Paper Smooches Forest Whimsy
Dies: Die-namics stitched rainbow, stitched rectangle
Inks: Altenew rose quartz, blush, buttercream, soft lilac, sea glass, Colorbox pistachio, baby blue, Versamark, Kaleidacolor Calypso
Other: Embossing powders clear sparkle and silver, white ultrafine glitter, Wink of Stella brush pen clear, foam mounting tape

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope that you have a wonderful day.

Whilst my DH was watching the Australian F1 Grand Prix today I decided to have a play with my new WPlus9 Feathers and Florals Stamp and Die set and create a CAS card.

Using a Zig brush marker I began by creating a blue smooshed watercolour splatter in the centre of the card. I stamped the sentiment several times using my Misti. The floral images were stamped twice, die cut then assembled in 3 layers with foam tape.

Materials used:
Stamps: WPlus9 Feathers & Florals, Reverse Confetti Paper Crane
Dies: WPlus9 Reathers & Florals
Inks: Altenew Mango Smoothie, Peach perfect, Lavender Fields, Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades. Memento Black
Other: Zig brush marker cornflower blue, Pretty Pink Posh 4mm clear droplets, white enamel dots, watercolour paper

Thanks for stopping by and I hope that you have a great day.

I am entering this card in the HLS March Watercolour and HLS CAS March Diecut Challenge.

 

Happy Day

Today I have been inspired by the Altenew Inspiration Challenge, March 2017.

It is such a “HAPPY” image, both in subject and colour, so I decided to use the word happy with Altenew’s Doodle Blooms using the challenge colours of yellow, orange and red.

I first created some watercolour papers using my new Tim Holtz Oxide Distress Inks and used these behind the happy negative word die cut and also to stamp the flowers. I drew some white gel pen doodles on the flowers. I added some “movement”, reminiscent of the dancers, to the white background with ink splatters and the stitched strip die.

Supplies used:
Stamps: Altenew Doodle Blooms, Lawn Fawn Lets Bokeh
Dies: Altenew Doodle Blooms, Die-namics Stitched strip, WPlus9 Happy Trio
Inks: Tim Holtz Oxide Distress Inks-Peeled Paint, Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade, Fired Brick; Memento black
Other: watercolour paper, coloured rhinestones, white gel pen, black & white washi tape

Thanks for stopping by and “Have a Happy Day”.
