Learn from yesterday

A card for I am woman challenge over at Lost Coast Portal.

 So I started out with a white Copic friendly cardstock. I stamped Lycaonia with black ink. Then I colored it with Copic markers.
Then I colored the background also with Copic markers and I took I the colorless blender and made "snowflakes" with it for the sky.
Next I took a saying added to the top, then I layered it on black cardstock the a blue card base.
Easy coloring and layering card.

Raven Doodles

Oodles of Doodles over at the Lost Coast Portal this challenge. So here is my take on it.
I made this card using stencil and stamps and a ink pad or two.
 Here is a close up of the stencil and corner swirl stamp I used.
What I did was take a white cardstock and a circle stencil (I used Tim Holtz).
Tape it down over the cardstock and pick your color of ink. (I used my favorite color purple)
I used Distress ink for this because it is easy to blend. I took the corner swirl stamp and stamped it over the stencil. Next I took the blender and the leftover ink on the stencil and blended it into the circles. So you have the dark ink from the stamp and the lighter ink from the blending.
Next I took the Raven right small and black ink and stamped it in the middle(ish) of the paper.
Last I took the Farting Unicorn saying under the Raven.
Added it to a black card base and I was done.

Hello There Cathy N here with a quick idea for this month's challenge at blank page muse . The challenge is color play: turquois, sliver and sparkle...
 I started out with a scrap sheet of watercolor paper and painted in the turquois and sliver colors
Next I stamped chicken wire stamp, Olde Tyme HandsOld style key with top hat(didn't ink the hat part) , small wavy flourish and border stamp
To make the card I just cut a strip of the paper I made and added it to a white card front. Next I stamped feathered pair of wings on black cardstock and embossed in white. Then I stamped the dress form and colored it with distress inks then I added sparkle to it.

New Year's Party Crown

I have a New Year's Party Crown idea for you.
 Over at Blank Page Muse blog the theme is Color Play. What colors you might ask? Turquoise, sliver and sparkle.
I first started out with some white cardstock and painted it with some turquoise paint. Let dry or hit it with a heat gun.
Next I took sliver paint and a sea sponge and sponged it all over the cardstock. Let that dry.
Here is what it looks like after I was done.
Next I took small sunflower blossom stamp quite a few times on the paper and I cut them out. I edged them with a black marker so you don't see the white edges on it.
After I cut them out I took some art wire and wrapped it around a pen to make the spiral and attached the blossom to the top and taped the other end inside the crown.
Last I took one  blossom and cut it in half and added it to the front of the crown.
What a fun way to start 2018.

Do I smell Cake

Cathy here to interrupt your normally scheduled Christmas/Winter post to  sneak this in....
Over at Lost Coast Designs they have some cat and dog stamps by KatzelKraft. They are so cute. I just had to pop over here and show you what I made..
The saying is from Carmen's Veranda. I had the saying and it just felt like the two go together.
Please take a look when you are shopping for your Lost Coast and Carmen's Veranda stamps at the new additions of KatzelKraft . You will be happy you did.
Now back to your regular scheduled program........
