Some green card fun for March

Hello again, I managed some time to create (play) in my studio yesterday and this is what I came up with. Following the Atlantic Hearts Challenge #202 using this sketch: 
And the Color my heart color dare #234 pick your green, I created this: 
I used Fern and New England Ivy card stock with the New England Ivy ink. The one strip is embossed with the diamonds folder from Close to my heart and embossed  with clear embossing powder. The gold polka dot is a washi tape from awhile back. There is still time for you to join in the fun and play too. The Atlantic Hearts Challenge always has a new sketch on Monday's and the Color my heart picks new colours on Fridays.

This Chair

Hi again, I thought I would try a scrapbook layout for a change. Last Easter I spotted this chair at my brother's home and was delighted. I took a few photos to help me remember, then as I am taking a class on remembering our journey thought I would scrap it! Creative Scrapbooker has a Sketchy Gallery, where you can find monthly sketches to inspire you to create. I choose to use this one 2017_Feb_sketch_kellyklapstein__FINAL.jpgfrom February this year. Yes I know I do not have two photos, but these are for inspiration. I am also using colour inspiration from the colour my heart colour dare colour dare #233, where we are asked to use theses colours:  No automatic alt text available. Black, white daisy, pomegranate, peacock and sea glass. A few weeks ago I took part in a paint night where we painted a circle, I used a similar technique on my layout. I used the larger brush water colour brush and picked up the colour from the lids of my inks, after giving them a good squeeze while closed, and painted my circles. This is my creation: 
It was fun to play with colour and record some of my memories of these chairs.

Paint splatter fun....

Have you ever sent a paper hug????

Back again, I have created another card for my workshop this week Friday evening. I love challenges as they inspire me, so at the Atlantic hearts challenge we are using sketch #195  and again on the Color my heart color dare #226.

I used the Close to my Heart stamp set D1711 that is a fundraiser for Operation Smile. I may still colour in my little girl, I am very happy with how this turned out.

Thought I would try a different challenge for today's card....Over on the heart 2 heart challenges we are challenged to use gold and silver. So how about a gold, silver and black valentines day card using this months stamp of the month!
I have created a pop up inside using the sentiments from the stamp set. I stamped the all the images on the front using versa mark ink. The heart with the flowers is embossed in silver and the flowers are coloured in with our metallic markers, the Adore You is embossed in gold. Kinda difficult to see the colour differences, but it is a stunning card.

This will be one of the cards that we will create at this Friday's card class! Let me know if you are interested in joining us in my studio.
