I've used poinsettia and various foliage die-cuts to make a Christmas card, inspired by photo inspiration from challenge #209 at Merry Monday, where the theme is Christmas in July - create a project inspired by a previous challenge.

Time Out - Holidays w/optional twist of no stamping (stamped sentiment allowed)
I coloured the stamped flowers lightly with alcohol pens and intensified the colours with pencils. Wasn't sure about the sentiment but quite like the contrast between the delicate image and bold sentiment.

I really wanted to make a card involving sunshine but for some reason, my mojo was leading me to rain, LOL!
Anyhow, I stamped the little ladies and umbrellas on white card, coloured in with alcohol marker pens and fussy cut them out. The little rain drops were stamped, the sentiment heat embossed in white on a black die cut circle, and Glossy Accents applied to the umbrellas.

Hi crafting friends, I hope you had a good weekend!
My card today was made using markers in a few different ways. I created the background using SU! markers scribbled onto an acrylic block, lightly misted with water and stamped onto watercolour card. The colours were blended a little with an aqua brush.
The lighthouse was stamped in black, the stripes added with a stamp inked with a red SU! marker, grey highlights added with a Promarker and fussy-cut out. Everything is arranged around a die-cut oval.
The background is a bit "looser" than I would have liked but it's my third attempt. I need more practice and if you know a good online watercolour class, please let me know!
The colours are from the ColourQ selection (Real Red, Basic Grey, Marina Mist and Island Indigo).

I haven't been able to post here for a while due to unfortunate circumstances and being busy with other things and am so happy that I've had an opportunity to do some crafting and join in with some of your lovely challenges. Thank you so much for visiting my blog and for your support and kind comments.
Hello everyone, I hope you're having a nice weekend and enjoying some sunshine.
It's time to start a new CAS challenge at Happy Little Stampers and this month the technique/theme is Stencil Monoprint.
The prizes are $30 Happy Little Stampers gift certificate for the winner and $10 HLS gift certificates for each of the Favourites.
I have to confess I wasn't in the know about this technique but after watching a couple of little tutorials, all became clear!
To make my DT card, I inked a chevron stencil using a piece of Cut N Dry foam and two shades of blue distress ink, misted lightly with water and pressed the stencil down onto a piece of card. I die cut a panel out of that, added a butterfly coloured with Chameleon pens and heat embossed sentiment.
Please do check out the short tutorials and DT inspiration at the HLS CAS challenge blog and we hope you will be inspired and join in!
