Flying Challenge

 Hello, I'm here with a card for you using Lost Coast stamps. 

Stamps Used:

First, I took one stamp from Pieces of Architecture and stamped it with a teal distress ink. I then took a stamp from Pieces of Calligraphy and stamped it in gray ink. Then I sprayed water on it so it would spread the ink and blur the stamping. I then took some gray distress spray ink and sprayed it in the middle. Dried it with a heat gun. After it was dry, I then took a number stencil with some black ink and stenciled the two corners, and I edged the piece in black ink.

On another sheet of paper, I stamped the Flying moon and the Eye chart square. I cut out the eye and the wings from the moon. Next, I then colored them with Copic markers and glued them together.
After they were dry, I added them to the front of the panel. I then added it to a white card base.

You can join all the winged fun here.

Slimline card

 Hello,I'm here with a slimline card for you using Lost Coast stamps.

Stamps used:

I started out with some distress ink colors. I used ink splat stamp from Brush strokes and inked it up. Then I sprayed it with water and stamped. It made it have a watercolor effect. Clean off the stamp and move it, pick a different color and repeat the process.
Next, I stamped the number border on the bottom of the panel. Set aside. I stamped the old lady with the Coffee and colored it with the say colors I used to stamp the background. Cut her out and placed her on top of the number border.
I layered the panel on black cardstock. I then stamped Saying and cut out and layered that on black and added that to the top of the card. I mounted on a white card base.

I hope you will join the challenge here.

Doctor Who galaxy card

 Happy 2023. I have a card to share with you for the first new challenge of 2023 for The Male Room blog. The theme is galaxy or stars. 

So of course, I did Doctor Who. I started out with watercolor paper, and I picked out some colors of distress inks. I sponged them into the center leaving space in between. Next, I splattered with water to make some marks, then dried. 
After it was dry, I then took black ink and sponged in the in-between spots. (I should have used distress ink on this too, but I didn't) I tried to splatter the black with water, but it didn't make the water spots. Hence, I should have used a different ink. Oh well I just went with it. Then I took some white ink and watered it down and splattered the background. Instant galaxy. 
What better to add in a galaxy? A TARDIS. 
Stamped in blue and colored with a blue colored pencil, cut out and added to the center of card and then added it to a white card base.  

You can share you make here.

Transportation card

 Today starts a new challenge over at The Male Room blog.

For my card I started out with a tag. I used blue and gray distress inks on the background. I smooched it on a glass mat and then dried it.
I then stamped the cars with black ink and then used black embossing power on it. Edged it with black ink. 
Then I started on the card base. I used Kraft cardstock. I some grungy "filler" stamps on it with black and blue ink to match the tag. I then added my tag to the middle. Lastly, I added some ephemera, and we have a card.

I hope you will join the challenge.
