CAS-ual Fridays: CFC 200

Welcome to a new challenge at CAS-ual Fridays Challenge!

I created an alcohol ink background on Yupo using Raspberry and Wild Plum ranger alcohol inks, and Passion Purple from Pinata inks. I then added some hot pink foil over the top for some pink shine. I then stamped and white embossed the new Celebrate stamp set from CAS-ual Fridays - you can get this set for free with any $40 order from CAS-ual Fridays until the 6th of June (while stocks last)! I cut the Yupo panel on an angle and added a stamped sentiment from "Whole Shebang" underneath the coloured panel.

Fusion: Coral Flowers

Welcome to a new challenge at Fusion!
I ignored the sketch this time and just used the photo as my inspiration. I created a background using the back of a border stamp (because I don't own a stamp of thick, bold stripes), stamped with Soft Cantaloupe shadow ink from Hero Arts. I then stamped and die cut the Spring Bouquet from Studio Katia, and coloured it with Copic markers. I added a die cut sentiment, also from Studio Katia.

Make sure you check out all the rest of the inspiration at the Fusion challenge blog, and play along with your own creation!

Rainbow heart

I can't stop with the rainbow alcohol ink backgrounds. Or with the foiling.
The heart is die cut with a die from Lawn Fawn, and the sentiment is from Hero Arts.

Blue Bouquet

I know these type of flowers don't come in a blue variety, but I don't care. I like blue.
I used the Blooming Bunch stamp set from Studio Katia, white embossed with Zig markers, along with a sentiment from Simon Says Stamp "Thoughtfiul Messages". The panel is adhered to a Hero Arts note card.

Hugs for a friend

I can't stop making alcohol ink backgrounds, so I'm trying lots of different ways to cut them down, so that 1. I get a variety of different styles of cards, and 2. I can get multiple cards out of the same Yupo panel (because Yupo isn't the cheapest medium to use). 
The alcohol ink background has some royal blue foil on it, because I need absolutely no excuse to use blue on everything.
I cut the panel with Stitched Hillside Borders dies from Lawn Fawn, then added the Friend die cut from CAS-ual Fridays and the stamped sentient is from Simon Says Stamp.

Long time no tea

The new challenge theme at A Blog Named Hero is Watercolour. My go-to watercolour technique is Zig markers over a white-embossed background stamp, but not today!
I went for clean, simple and Oh-So-Cute today, with the Mouse Tea Party stamp set from Hero Arts. I still used my Zig markers, but in a much more precise way than I normally do! After watercolouring the image, I re-stamped both the image and the sentiment to make sure the black outline was nice and crisp (gotta love the MISTI!) I finished the card with a strip of patterned paper from my stash, and a watercolour card offcut coloured with the same blue Zig I used in the main image, and then a few sequins.

The circle was cut using a die from Lil' Inkers, and the sentiment is from Avery Elle.

Hello, baby

Always need some baby cards in my stash.
I used the Kaleidoscope background stamp from Simon Says Stamp, coloured with Zig markers and water. I added a die cut word "baby" from Papertrey Ink, and a stamped "hello" also from Simon Says Stamp, before adhering it to a pale mauve card base.

CAS-ual Fridays: CFC 199

Welcome to a new challenge at CAS-ual Fridays!

 I started by stamping and masking the flowers and leaves from CAS-ual Fridays "Pretty Posies". Before removing the masks, I used an ink blending tool to add Distress Oxide ink in Broken China and Salty Ocean. I also spattered on some water droplets, and some Perfect Pearls mixed with water. I removed the masks, coloured the images with Copic markers, added a sentiment from CAS-ual Fridays "Mon Ami", and cut the left edge to give a little bit of white space, and to match the sketch (notice how one of the stars in the sketch is off the edge?)
