Many Thanks

Welcome to the blog today.  I created this A2 card to say thank you to my new cat sitter for watching my little buddy and thought I would tie it into Altenew's 2018 Year In Review Challenge.  I received a lovely gift from Altenew Billowing Blossoms and thought I would use it to enter the challenge and say thank you all at the same time!  I chose the month of October, which had the colors of pink, purple, and green.

I love these solid stamps because it's so easy to paint the stamps with watercolor paints, spritz them with water and press onto watercolor creating a lovely handpainted look.  I used Daniel Smith Bordeaux, Bright Violet, Sap Green, and Green Gold.  When everything was dry, I splattered with the pink Bordeaux.  Lastly, I stamped the sentiment in Versafine Black Onyx Ink and adhered to the watercolor panel.  Thank you for reading this and the supplies I used are listed below.

Happpppy Christmas

Welcome to the blog today.  This card is of a charity blog hop submission for Kat Scrappiness, and this great cause is for the help of young people struggling with drug addiction.

I've listed the supplies below.  To create this card I ink blended some distress oxide inks on Bristol cardstock.  I sprayed a bit of water with perfect pearls and then spattered some white copic ink for 'snow'.  I die cut the birch trees and then adhered to the colored background.  I stamped the deer with some carmel ink from Hero Arts.  I adhered them to the tree piece and mounted this to a cardbase.  I white embossed the sentiment onto some vellum and added a few snowflakes. 
Happppppy Winter!
