July ODBD Challenge


I'm a bit late to the party and there are already over 50 cards, but I just have to participate in this months challenge. July's challenge is "Things With Wings".  I think a bigger challenge for me would be to make a card without a feather, bird, or owl!
So here's my submission


I used Art Impressions Birthday Whoot and colored with PrismaColor.  
Paper is from We R Memory Keepers Feelin' Groovy.

Thanks for stopping by!

Watercolor Cards

Seems like watercolors are all the rage these days.  I decided to try my hand at a few techniques I saw on Pinterest.


I just swept some similar colors in stripes across some watercolor paper. I Die cut a star and used Hero Arts OWH fundraiser set Year Round Sentiments.


I tried something a bit different with this one.  I wet embossed a feather stamp, heat set then ran some watercolor paint across.  The sentiment is also from Hero Arts Year Round Sentiments.


With this one, I stamped Wplus9 feathers with some Distress Inks and ran a wet brush up to fill the top corner with color.  I used a distress tool on the edges of the square and added some enamel dots.

Thanks for stopping by!
