Guest Designer for 12 Kits of Occasion February

Happy Saturday everyone!! I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. It has been a long week and I am so happy to have some time to myself.

Today I am posting some cards that I made for the 12 Kits of Occasion Challenge for February. Jeanne Jachna from A Kept Life asked me if I wanted to play this month and there was no way I was going to say no to that!!! The theme of the kit was "crafting" with fun papers and images of paint brushes, animals crafting. I was only able to make three cards but I have enough goodies to make plenty more. My mojo has just been so off that I have just been slow at creating anything.

My first card I took the image that was stamped on watercolor paper and used some Tombow markers to color a portion and then used a watercolor brush to "paint" the color in.

I kind of had it in my mind for it to be a "modern painting" look. I then added the paint palate onto the card front and added swatches of "paint" to the palate covered in glossy accents. The colors are bright but it was so fun to make.

For my second card, I used hearts cut from a piece of pattern paper in the kit as the inspiration for my card. I actually die cut them out with different sized dies rather then fussy cutting as I wanted a range of sizes.

I then added the frame that was in the kit that I had blended brown ink on. I added this over the sentiment.

As I was making this before Valentine's Day, I added a sentiment of my own at the bottom to make it a Valentine.

For my third card, I used the pattern paper as my card inspiration. The polka dots in the rich colors just made me happy!

I added the tag, from the kit, and the fun little zebra that I colored in with Copic markers.

I had so much fun with this kit and plan to make more cards when my mojo returns. I am so happy that Jeanne asked me to be a guest designer this month and would love to have the opportunity to do it again sometime!!

I want to thank you for taking the time to stop by my blog today. 

Have a FABULOUS day!!
