Friends of Flourishes - Watercolor

I am back today with a card for the Friends of Flourishes Blog challenge.    Gloria challenged us to use water coloring on our cards.  Thanks,  Gloria, for getting me out of my comfort zone.

I stamped on water color paper using my Flourishes Endearing Rose stamp set.  I used Zig Markers and a water color brush to color my image. 

Here are links to my team mates blogs.  I hope you will check out their water coloring cards.

ArtNeko - Calligraphy and Chinese Chop Signature

Here is a card I made for the Art Neko blog.  I used the Calligraphy and Chinese Chop Signature and the  Bamboo and Kanji Bookmark.

Nothing says Asian better than red and black paper,  add some gold  paper and gold embossing to make even more of a statement.  I mounted my stamped pieces over a dry embossed white panel.  I think it helps to make the images pop.

Please visit the Art Neko Blog for more details on my card.

Thank you for stopping by today and have a great weekend.

Art Neko - Happy Birthday Iris Fold Kimono

Happy Valentine's Day.   I hope love is in the air in your little corner of the world.  It is dreary and rainy in mine, but I am sure Cupid is out there somewhere.  ~smile~

Yesterday for the Technique Lovers challenge at Splitcoast, the challenge was to do Iris Folding.  I have never done Iris folding, but always wanted to.  Since I needed a card for  Art Neko Rubber Stamps today, I thought it was only appropriate to Iris Fold a Kimono.    I used the Art Neko Vertical Text stamp.   I stamped Happy on one side and then birthday on the other.  I stamped in Versa Mark and then embossed with gold embossing powder.

I hope you enjoyed my card today.  Thanks, for coming by today.

Blue Knight - Pretty In Blue

I wanted to share the card I made with a stamp from Blue Knight Rubber Stamps called "Motherhood".   Here is a picture of the actual stamp:

I love this  Motherhood stamp with the little girl holding Mom's hand while carrying the cute bear in the other hand.  I needed a card with just the mom so I only used part of the stamp for my card today.

FOF Flourishes Flower

Davi is the challenge hostess for the Friends Of Flourishes  this week.  She has challenged us to put flowers on our cards.  I used the Flourishes Stamp set called Camellia love.    I colored the image using Copic Markers.  I used several layers of the pink and black card stock and I like the elegance of the frames.    I added a few pearls to the card when I was done.

I really appreciate you coming by.  You can find links below to see what my team mates made for this challenge.  Be sure to check them out.

Have a great and fun weekend.

Thinking of You Twisted Tree

Here is a card I made using the Art Neko Stamp Sheet -  Cowboy Up.  I thought this tree image could be used for a thinking of you card for a gentleman friend.  I used Authenique paper and I used a punch to make the corners.  The sentiment was computer generated.
