Color Burst Flowers

I had so much fun experimenting with this Hero Arts Bold Flowers 4 piece stencil yesterday. I used the main flower part and added cherry pink colour burst crystals and spritzed them with water, dried and then repeated process with leaves in green. Added some HA transfers, gold paste for the flower center stencil, and spritzed everything with some shimmer spray. Gold embossed sentiment from Art Journal Messages set.

Round Card

 For my weekly Christmas card challenge, theme of round card. Mostly made of holiday paper, a round three layer card fastened loosely with mini brads so it opens and closes easily.

Watercolor Doodle

 Well, I doodled, swirled, painted with watercolors, did an iridescent wash in certain segments, zentangled, added some white gel pen dots, finished with shimmer sprays for today's SCS Mixed Media challenge. Just kept adding things and could not stop.

"Bouquet Of Love" embossing folder and dies.

Acrylic Paint Background

 For the backgrounds I used one piece of black card stock and swiped it with a few different colors of Acrylic paints. Cut into 4 and made card fronts with carious embossing folders and inks on top. The copper was a liquid ink and I love the way it has a patina with some color showing through.

 I found a wonderful tutorial by Juliana Michaels on youtube to create these cards using the new From The Vault Tim Holtz Sizzix dies "Lovebirds". I adore these dies and will use them quite often!
