Let's hear it for the boys | Heart to Heart Challenge.

This challenge is perfect timing for the Father's day celebration from yesterday! I am sharing a card I created for the local artisans shop in my home town. 

By adding a little white gel pen to the letters and game controller, you can make a plain sentiment POP. To really ham this up, I added two black dots to the game controller! 

Be sure to link up your interpretation of "Let's Hear It For the Boys" challenge.

Watercoloring or Alcohol Markers?

Hello Friend! 

So happy to have you stop by! I am wondering what your go to coloring medium is, watercolors or alcohol markers? I love coloring with both mediums and have done just that with the floral borders stamp set. 

Today's card process can be seen here: 
Having trouble seeing the video? Click here: https://youtu.be/Txdf2tG5F2g




Check out the finished cards.



This watercolor card has such soft colors. This card was cut down by 1/8 of an inch on all four sides. The Card was adhered to silver foil paper using fun foam between the layers. A few sequins finish this card off. 
The alcohol markers really pop and make this piece stand out! This, just like the watercolor panel was cut down by 1/8 of an inch on all four sides and adhered to silver foil paper with fun foam in between the layers. You can see three sequins in the lower left hand corner to finish the card off.

Get Inky

Hello Friend! 

So today's post is a challenge for you to try! I, along with the rest of the design team at H2H challenges want to see you get inky. 



What does "Get Inky" mean? Well, it means whatever you get inky means to you. Perhaps that is sponging, or ink blending,  maybe it's rock n roll stamping, or repeat stamping, whatever comes to mind when you think ink. 

I truly hope my project with the June Stamp of the Month showing off repeat stamping and ink resistance helps inspire you to join this challenge and get crafty! 

If you {heart} Close To My Heart, then this challenge blog is for you! Please read our revised rules, HERE

After you read the rules be sure to come back here and direct link* to your challenge post so we can see your artwork!

Have fun!
