Garden Greetings

Two coloring supplies that I hardly ever use but wanted to expand my coloring options for The Daily Marker 30 day coloring challenge. Not sure I have the gist of it or if there is supposed to be a strict format to follow so I'm going with trying new things! For this I used Tim Holtz distress crayons which are easy for large background areas. Just scribble on the crayon and hit it with a water brush. I added color details to the flowers and leaves with Arteza brush markers. 
Also for the SSS Monday challenge to heat emboss. This set and embossing folder are from the recent Garden Greetings card kit.  


Kindness Matters

 Another for the Simon Says Stamp heat embossing challenge, using their 2017 Kind Flowers card kit, embossed in white.

Always Be Kind

 Working on some Monday challenges and my coloring skills. Day 9 of The Daily Marker 30 Day coloring challenge, I used Copic markers and the sentiment was sone in Spectrum Noir Sparkle brush. This challenge is a great way for me to try a new item that I have in my stock that hasn't been used lately or at all.

Also this is for the Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge to heat emboss. I used Ranger Liquid Platinum powder for the die cut sentiment. This is the November 2017 card kit from SSS and one of my favorites. Embellishments are by Memory Box.
