Friends

Happy Monday everyone. Our weekend was all gloomy, and grey...so does the start of new week as well. Nowadays it is a comfort to sit in my cozy home and do the things I love.
I made a few cards, and sharing 2 in this post.

The first one up is a CASE from CASEplorations. I am case-ing the guest Laura. I chose the bold flowers stencils and inked and the final coat of color was dabbed using a sponge...I did this dabbing earlier on my cards, using the same stencil, and loved the effect, so went for it again.
I had used the FRIEND word die from Paper Smooches using a brown card stock, and stamped the hello also from Paper Smooches - gently seasoned set on a pattern paper. Added a white twine, and few pearls to finish off.

  Here is a picture of both my cards below, this was from last year, I used black color card stock, and used the pigment inks for the sponging part, and finished both with dabbing.




Here is a picture of the pigment inks I had used for this, 4 different colors.

The finished stenciled look before doing the yellow center.

 I was inspired by the colored flowers on the white card, and the twine, and die cut sentiment.

Paper Smooches January Challenge
 I have 4 plus colors, and used the sentiment and die cut from paper Smooches.

Fusion Card Challenge
 I was inspired by the bright blooms here.

The second one up is a one layer card, I had used a textured vanilla base here. I used the stamps from WPlus9 - embroidered bouquet, to stamp the flowers and vines, also the sentiment from the same set. I used pear pizzaz and crushed berries ink for this.
