A Few Challenges

Hello everyone!! I hope you have all been doing well. This weekend has been so beautiful and I have been able to walk outside in short sleeves-which has been kind of exciting.

Haven't been here in a while. I have been watching technique videos and trying some new techniques, and revisiting old.

Today I have a couple of cards that I did for some challenges.

My first card I created for CASE this Sketch #316.

I actually flipped the sketch horizontally so the "triangle" was on the left, not the right.

Original and the flipped

I used Altenew's Beautiful Peony set to stamp a triangle and used an ink blender and an eye shadow brush to color the flowers in loosely with Distress Ink.

I created the sentiment on my computer because I did not have one this size to use.

I am also going to enter this into the Card Concept Challenge #112. I was inspired by the pink flowers.

My second card was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches #382. I used the same set up but tried a technique that is new to me-Alex Syberia's Dotted Coloring. I didn't have the correct markers so I tried Tombow markers. It didn't come out like hers but I don't hate it. 

Here is the card:

I used Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide Ink for the background and the drips are from drawing with the markers on a craft mat and picking them up with a brush full of a water.

When I was done, I covered it with Nuvo Clear Glitter Marker. The sentiment was once again created on the computer. Sometimes it just easier than stamping!!

That is all for me today. I am off to have lunch with my friends to plan some activities we will be doing when we travel to Ireland in June. I so need a vacation!!

Have a FABULOUS day!!
