Moving along with the times #52- Things beginning with B

Here's my card for the Moving along with the Times #52 challenge, to include things that begin with B. So, I used blue and a bird. My background was done with the Oxide Ink smash technique. I also inked the inside of an embossing folder to add the printed circles up the left side. I paper pieced the little bird, and stamped the sentiment and then cut it out with a heart die.

Just Add ink 373 and Tic Tac Toe

This card I made for the challenge over at Just Add Ink 373 which was to add a stencil. The other challenge I used is TicTacToe  and here is the grid:

For the TicTacToe challenge I used the leaf, thank you, and yellow. The card was made with Distress Oxide Inks, then I stenciled leaves on it with the darker yellow. I stamped the dots on the card with an old SU itty bitty background stamp, and I inked the inside of an embossing folder, spritzed it with water and stamped the pattern on the left. I diecut my Thanks and added it to the card.

In the pink 124

I used this for the Free for All challenge on SCS which required a bow on the card. I also am using this card for the "in the Pink" challenge #124.  I used some of the next oxide inks by Tim Holtz for my background and I inked an embossing folder, spritzed it with water and stamped on the background with it randomly. The image and sentiment are from Unity Stamps, that I colored them with copic markers.

Little Red Wagon #407

This is for the Little Red Wagon challenge #407. I got this die cut set from a bargain rack and have not used it yet. So thought this challenge of "Bows and Arrows" seem to fit the die. I did a smash background of oxide inks (which I just love) and added the sentiment from Unity and then arranged the diecuts around it. I loved the earthy colors for this and the red for a pop color.

Freshly Made Sketch 301

Trying out the Freshly Made Sketch this week. I made an oxide inked background, used a background stamp from Stampin' up and added a sentiment.  Here is the sketch for the challenge

Anne is again our fabulous hostess, and as the summer draws to a close, she asks that we  make a card with a nautical theme.  This can include the beach if you so desire.

I used a nautical set I won from Flonz stamps. I embossed thewhite card base and diecut the blue anchor.

Make my Monday #52 Grey and pink

I did this for the Make my MOnday challenge #52 to use grey and pink. My grey is a silver metallic and it appears more blackish in the photo. I got out an old set I got from Paper Trey years ago. After stamping the flower and leaves, I painted them with Oxide inks. After it was dry, I fuzzy cut it out and then diecut the believe out of pink paper. The white panel is stenciled using hickory smoke distress ink.
