Earresistable


For today's color challenge of Marina Mist, Wild Wasabi and Crushed Curry I used this Easter set from Lawn Fawn. My sister always gets a missing bunny ears card from me. When we were kids she ate the ears off of everyone's chocolate bunny. It didn't take a lot of detective work on Dad's part to find the culprit, she was the only one of us who had a large space between her front teeth :) 
She continued with this ear theft for a while after that, she shaved off the tell-tale prints with her bottom teeth.

Mermaids


I have fallen for the Lawn Fawn stamps lately, they really make me happy. This is the stamp set Mermaid For You for the Splitcoast Mixed Media Under The Green Seas challenge. I used SU's Glossy White card stock with Tim Holtz alcohol ink colors of Stream, Citrus, and Sailboat Blue. Worked in both silver and gold mixatives. I used some bubble wrap and white craft ink and smooshed it on top of this when it was dry (it's hard to see in the photo). Sprayed with some blue Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist. For the bubbles I stamped it and then added some white gel pen highlights and clear round glass pebbles over top. 
The seaweed was stamped in Versamark and embossed with powder. 
The dune was stamped with the old retired SU Cheesecloth background stamp and the Lawn Fawn sentiment. Stamped, colored, and cut out the merpeople. Glittered up their tails and popped them up. Stitched frame dies is also by Lawn Fawn.

Mini Egg Carton



I am very happy to be joining the Color Challenge team again today and using the pretty color combo of So Saffron, Peekaboo Peach, and Cucumber Crush. 
I used one of the egg cartons from the SU mini and mixed three different acrylic paints to come up with a match for the Saffron. Lots of quilling/paper twirling with the peach and saffron for the flowers part of the challenge. Filled with chocolate eggs for extra points :) And calories :(

Mixed Media Butterfly Girl


For this week's "ghosting" technique challenge on Splitcoast, I used Tim Holtz distress ink colors of Worn Lipstick, Bundled Sage, Iced Spruce, and Wild Honey. Misted the water over top with Stampin' Up! stencil. Added gold Faber Castel texture paste with a Tim Holtz stencil. Using same stencil I added some more of this pattern with craft white ink. Sentiment is also TH. Butterfly girl is by Hot Off The Press. She didn't have facial features so I added some.. Added hints of Wink Of Stella from girl to sentiment.

Kitchen



Had a lot of fun putting this one together. Stamps and dies are from Lawn Fawn, Sprinkled With Love. I used their Perfectly Plaid paper which is a pretty collection for Springtime cards. Made a little towel to hang on the oven door that opens. For the cabinetry I used Stampin' Up!'s Hardwood stamp in Going Gray ink on Whisper White. The floor is Sahara Sand that was embossed with he woodgrain folder.

Mother's Day Butterflies


Love this new (to me) Hero Arts stamp set with butterfly dies. They are really cool, they don't cut out the whole thing, only partial cuts so it opens on the page. Pool Party and Whisper White card stocks, Copic markers, SU ink colors of Real Red, Primrose Petals, Positively Pink, and Pretty in Pink. Used me ever present Itty Bitty background spatter in Soft Sky.
