Watercolor Succulents

Today I am sharing a simple watercolor card. I was in the mood for messy coloring and wanted to play with my Sweet Succulents sets. So I made a card using the colors from the MFT Color Challenge 102:


And here is the result:


First, I stamped the images, masking the previously stamped ones before stamping the next. Then I colored everything with Inktense Pencils and water. The sentiment is heat-embossed.


Just in time before the challenge is ending :)

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

Shadow Box Card

Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! Did you get to make some cards for WCMD? We had a wonderful warm and sunny weather, so I had to do some much needed work in the garden. But in the evening I squeezed in time to make a card!

I used this sketch from the current MFT Sketch Challenge...


...and created a shadowbox card I've been wanting to try for a long time:


For my front, I flipped the sketch. The galaxy background is ink blended. All my images are colored with Copics and fussy-cut.
This is the inside:





I love to have a card that opens to reveal more cuteness :)

Thanks for visiting today!

I will start with my card and will tell you about all the fun details of our blog hop at the bottom of this post, so stay with me :)

Here is what I came up with for today:


Oh, I love this owl! I started with a white card base and embossed the front with the Dapper Diamonds Embossing Folder. Then I stamped the images from Happy Owlidays, colored them with Copics and die-cut everything with the matching dies. Now I stamped and heat-embossed the sentiment onto a strip of green cardstock, trimmed it and adhered all the pieces to the card with foam tape.


To finish the card off, I added clear sequins for a bit of festive bling.

I hope you like my card! These embossing folders add so much texture, it makes a clean & simple card more interesting. Now some important info for you!
