sunday stamps - birthday wishes

I am luvin these greens together and I really did start my card with the darker greens in mind. of course it ended up with the aqua's in there...*grin*. I have used my all time favorite daniel smith watercolor ink that I have...I know there are hundreds of colors. But, this one is by far my favorite of what I have, it is called quinacridone is the only color in the background; but look how many different colors emerge...luv it! I have used a simon says stamp floral set, even more spring flowers and the birthday wishes sentiment from the set called birthday bits. I cannot wait to see how you use this weeks colors...happy sunday!

as you see it - can't wait to see whats around the corner

hello and welcome to fri-YAY and the weekend...they sure don't roll around fast enough, do they? This weeks as you see it challenge is something borrowed, I borrowed the idea to use washi tape as a background page/designer paper. The flowery piece is washi tape from simple stories, I then used alcohol ink for the top and added a sweet red flower that I had in my stash box. Be sure to check out the rest of the design teams creations, these ladies are awesome!

inspired by - love

hello friends and welcoem to another fabulous week of inspired by, these ladies are amazing and the inspiration pics are so fun! I was inspired by the plaid tea towels on the line and of course the clothes line itself. I created a little banner using the letter from a pink fresh sticker pack. I used time holtz distressed ink to stencil the plaid background which is also a tim holtz stencil and the fun stamp market flowers were in my little stash box. I hope you have an amazing day and make time to play along with us! 

words with meaning - you're a limited edition, remember that!

you are on my mind

I am sharing another flower set from the technique tuesday greenhouse society stamp set. You can subscribe to receive the stamp and die of the month every month here. The flowers are just lovely, this stamp set reminded me of my mom and the home I grew up in, we had these gorgoeus purple iris in our flower bed. I have colored these using daniel smith watercolors and added white gel pen markings too. I have also played along with the sketch saturday sketch. Be sure to stop by my instagram, 2klines; technique tuesday and I are giving away two stamp and die sets to two different people!

I am luvin the sweet stamp set, it is adorable stamped out and the cuuute heart leaves...luv! I have stamped it using tim holtz distress inks and then painted the entire sheet of paper with daniel smith watercolor cobalt teal blue watered down. It is very similar to the simon says stamp sea glass card stock, I luv how it matches, the sea glass card stock is the base of my card. I then added ever so lightly the tonic glitter accents for just a wee bit of glimmer. I can't believe I am about to say this, but sometimes less is more. I think it is just enough, I actually luv the color combo and how it turned out. I cannot wait to see what you gotta luv some glimmer and glitz!
