We are having a quiet evening at home after going to church tonight. The "plan" was to play games tonight and let the kids stay up late and watch the ball drop --- but they are all sucked into an episode of Bones, so I'm stealing some bloggie time. 8-) Nerd smiley! We are SUUUUCH homebodies. Staying at home and doing just what we want is IDEAL. Couldn't think of a better scenario.
I wanted to share a couple of cards I made this afternoon playing along with some challenges, including the current Runway Inspired Challenge.
For my first card, I used PTI's Wet Paint II and embossed it in white on watercolor cardstock. I then brushed over the cardstock with watered down gelatos and a small paintbrush. I added the shadow effect by stamping the sentiment again, slightly offset, using Slate ink (CTMH). I just added a few little stitching and sequin embellies before adhering it to a Kraft base.
For my next card, I also used watercolor cardstock and stamped these heart balloons from Mama Elephant's Party Kit stamp set. The sentiment is from Paper Smooches Lots of Love stamp set. I added a sponged ink background using Tim Holtz Broken China Distress Ink all layered onto a Goldrush cardstock base (CTMH). Very simple and fast to make!
I am also playing along with Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes, the current Inkspirational challenge:
, and PDE's Linky Party: .
Thanks so much for stopping by to visit!
God Bless and Happy New Year,
