I feel like chasing after the wind...

Oh, well...everything seems delayed lately...as well this Mojo Monday 175 card. But here it is, better late than never. I used the Sweet Summer set from the SAB Brochure and stamped the images onto watercolor paper and then using ink pads and aqua painter I watercolored them. The sentiment is from you're a gem set from the new Occasions Mini.

The little yellow dots on the flowers and the butterflies have crystal effects on them, but it's hard to see on the picture.

Yes, very delayed. I have been intending to make those for my downline ladies who signed up since November and finally I am getting around to finish them (I KNOW!!!)
I made each of them a set of monogram cards :) . This is the first set I made. I used Very Vanilla, Basic Black and Cherry Cobbler cardstock. I was inspired by a card I saw on Etsy. I just had to spice it up a little bit more. I used Broadsheet alphabet set for the monogram.

Enjoy!

Couple days ago I posted a card (simple) using Botanical Gazzete dsp and crocheted ribbon and was vintage stile. So I decided to go little classy and made another card using the same layout, but changed the colors. I used black and vanilla. I used the First Editions dsp and basic black cardstock. And the butterfly is spayed with little bit of Silver Fox Smooch spritz.
Enjoy!

Inkspirations Challenge #55

Hi all,

and welcome to the Inkspirations challenge :)
This week is a sketch challenge, so I decided to make another vintage card, can't ya tell I am on the vintage roll?  I used the butterfly from Flores Suave set and some NON SU! dsp which  I colored using blender pens and old olive and cherry cobbler markers. As well I sponged the squares using the Distress essentials kit

More vintage

Here is yet another vintage card. This one is VERY simple. I used the Botanical Gazzete dsp, and distressed the edges using the Tea Stain and Mahagony spots from the Distressing Essentials kit. The butterfly is punched out from Early espresso card stock (not SU! punch) and then I adhered some pearls on her body. I stamped the sentiment from Live, Laugh, Love set in Very Vanilla and tied some crochet ribbon around and added a antique brad (first I cut off the "legs" and adhered it with blue dots).
As well I ran the tea stain ink spot over the ribbon before I tied it around.
And rounded the edges on the bottom side of the card.

So...pretty simple, as I haven't had time for anything more involved :) Hopefully soon

Here are some tags I made little while ago, when I was experimenting making vintage cards and different looks.
Sorry I have nothing freshly made for you. I have been having some bad migraines this past few days and I didn't get anything done. Hope tomorrow will be better day. :)

Two of the tags use SU! supplies only (the distress kit essentials, nature's walk set and clearly for you sets), the other two (on the right) use non SU! supplies.

Vintage Walk

Lately I have been drawn more and more towards the vintage style for some reason. I have rarely given it a go, but decided to try and make something vintage-ish.

So I decided to use Nature Walk set and combined it with couple more sets, including a wheel and the retired set Trimtastic. I used the Botanical Gazzete dsp, and some vintage brads and vintage trinkets along with the cherry cobbler seam binding ribbon. And of course the Distress essentials kit.
I like how it turned out :)

I just love this little girl from Greeting Cards kids. So stinkin' cute, not only her but the rest of the images from the set.
I used ink pads and aqua painter to watercolor. I made this card from my Watercoloring 2 online class to show shading, I have another card I made for the shading "lesson" but that one was shaded wet on wet. This one I did the shading after the image was dried.

Thanks goodness it's Friday, it's little after midnight, so I should probably get to bed, before I turn into pumpkin.
But before doing so , I wanted to share with you today's Watercolor techniques online class card. We made sky and ground using re-inkers and aqua painter.
I used not quite navy, poppy parade and more mustard for the sky and soft suede and crumb cake for the ground.

I like how it turned out.Using different colors will give you different effects.
