Atlantic hearts sketch 155 & Color my heart challenge #189

Hi again, I held a card making workshop a few nights ago and one of the cards we created used both these challenges. For the atlanticheartschallenge you have only a few hours left to join in the fun for this sketch, but check back tomorrow morning and there will be a new sketch to play with. This is this weeks sketch #155:
At the colormyheartcolordare we are challenged to use these colours for our creation. 
This is what I came up with:
I used Blending (3174) pen to pick up the ink from the Hollyhock, Thistle and Juniper ink pad to colour in our image that had been stamped in Memento black ink. I then used the sentiment to Laugh as much as you breath stamped on the juniper cardstock with Juniper ink. We had fun creating and colouring these cards. If you would like to have any of the supplies listed here for yourself, please check out the shopping cart that will take you to my Online Business page.

I had fun today creating this layout, I had pinned a number of pins using this stamp of the month for April, Life in Pictures S1604. It has cameras, need I say more, as I am a photo happy taking person. The blog hop snuck up on me and today is the day. A studio J layout from a few years back could have worked, but I thought why not? So I went outside to look for signs of spring in my gardens, found a few and took some photos. Then I created this layout stamping a border of various cameras on Champagne cardstock in black, then inking the edges. Stamped directly on the white daisy cardstock using black ink for the picture frames, then....I got to play with a new to me stamp set Ink blots D1660 I used whisper and champagne inks to create my background. This stamp set will be a new favourite for me I think. I used the upper case Glamour Alpha D1537 for the title. I enjoyed spending some time scrapping as it is something I really enjoy.
