AEI♥U #11 (One Word), Moxie Fab World 3/7 (Wonderful Words), SSS Wednesday 16/7 (Spots and Dots), SSS Work It Wednesday #6 (Anything Goes), Inkspirational #61 (Splash)

It’s been so much fun having some dedicated time to play this afternoon … I only made three cards, but had a blast just creating with paper and ink!  Here’s the last of my cards for the weekend …

AEI♥U 11, MFW July 2014, SSSW 16-7, SSSWIW 6A little while ago, I was doing some watercolouring with Distress Inks and had some ink left on my mat afterwards … so inspired by Shirley (be proud, my friend!) I found some watercolour card, smooched it into the splodginess and set it aside to dry.  This is a piece of it.  I die cut two Avery Elle hello’s … one out of the panel and one in navy card.  I fixed the cut panel to the base card, fitted the navy hello into it and adhered the watercolour one over the top, slightly offset.  Two strips of navy were added top and bottom of the panel, Wink of Stella was applied to them and to the hello’s, and I scattered a little bling about.  Voila!

I’m playing along here …

AEI♥U – One Word (the die is Avery Elle)

Moxie Fab World – Wonderful Words Challenge (word dies)

SSS Wednesday – Spots and Dots (rather unruly, but spots and dots nevertheless!)

SSS Work It Wednesday – Anything Goes (first entry)

ETA:  Inkspirational – Splash (thanks to Sandie and Carol for pointing me in the right direction … my first time playing here!)

Would love to have some more time available to experiment create this coming week, but I’m pretty certain that’s not going to happen … there’s another busy one ahead.  However, I will be pottering around blogland when I can, so I’ll look forward to seeing you there … and being inspired!  Thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments are always a joy!  Anita 🙂

Moxie Fab World

Addicted to CAS #39 (Texture), Annabelle Stamps #May (Sketch), Colour Q #244 (Bashful Blue, Night of Navy, Old Olive, Tangerine Tango), AEI♥U #8 (Fathers Day/Masculine), SSSW 28/5 (Anything Goes)

A card came together tonight that was inspired by a few challenges … and as a couple are closing very shortly, I’m posting it quickly!

ATCAS 39, AS May, CQ 244, AEI♥U 8, SSSW 28-5I stamped and white embossed the Annabelle Stamps lined border a few times onto textured card, trimmed it to an angled panel and watercoloured the spaces using a smooshed ink and water mix.  Once it was dry, the panel was popped up on the textured card base on foam dots and I stamped and embossed the Avery Elle sentiment.  IRL there’s loads of texture here (imagine running your fingers over all those embossed lines!) … it just wasn’t catchable with the camera.

I’m playing along with these challenges …

Clearly Besotted #10 (Spring), AEI♥U #5 (Turquoise, Pistachio, Aqua), CASology #92 (Garden), SSS Work It Wednesday #3 (Spring), SSS Wednesday 23/4 (Keep It Clean & Simple)

Here’s a spring-like, flower garden card …

CB 10, AEI♥U 5, CASology 92, SSS WIW #3I’m squeezing in (just) at Clearly Besotted‘s Spring themed challenge … and combining that with Avery Elle’s AEI♥U‘s colour week (Turquoise, Pistachio, Aqua), CASology‘s Garden Cue Card and Simon Says Stamp Work It Wednesday‘s Spring theme.

ETA:  Almost forgot, Simon Says Stamp Wednesday has a Keep it Clean & Simple week … I’m linking up there too!

The Avery Elle sentiment was stamped first … and the Clearly Besotted pistachio stems grew out of some of the letters.  I added the CB dandelion heads in aqua, and with the next size down dandelion image, overstamped them in turquoise, before liberally applying Wink of Stella to the flower heads (for dew!).  A few gems (concentrated dew!) finished it off.  I thought about matting it over a dark colour … and thought about adding a border each side … but I think doing so would’ve taken away from the soft dreamy look of these stems blowing gently in the breeze!

Off to link before the door clunks shut!  Thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments are always a joy!  Anita 🙂
