Spring Challenge

Susan Sieracki is hosting the Mod Squad challenge today and the challenge is to make a spring card. Today I used an image from the sponsor (Sparkle N Sprinkle)

I colored the image very simply and matted in black. The background is done on watercolor paper. I lightly sprinkled on a tiny bit of Brusho ink crystals the spritzed with pearlized water. I have some great pearlized watercolor I got from Dick Blick. I add 1/3 of it to 2/3 water for my spray. Back to the can barely see the powder, then you spritz and whalla! The color is so intense you only need a little.

Stampendous Pop-Up Card

This card was made for the Mod Squad Challenge, the theme is to make a pop-up card. I used the Stampendous Pop-up Card dies. Man do you get a lot of dies, check it out! This set makes making a pop-up card easy! It even includes sentiment dies. I colored the flowers with Inktense pencils and water and used the coordinating dies to cut. Added the lace from my stash. The DP cut at the bottom is one of the card dies.

Heartfelt Creations paper
Hot Off The Press Lace Stickers
Pure Luxury Navy Cardstock

For the vase I used Encrusted Jewels blue. I used the glittery embossing over the water and added the fragments over the base only. It is more glittery then seen here. I also covered the roses with Wink Of Stella.

Use Water At Mod Squad Challenge

This card is for the Mod Squad Challenge. Our sponsor this week is Gina K Designs, StampTV. The prize is a grab bag of goodies!

My card for this challenge is my take 2 on the case I did of Theresa Momber's card. I used all Pan Pastels on the background instead of ink. Oh my, the goofs I made LOL! First the orientation was meant to be horizontal...oops. Well keep on going. I tore some of the paper with my masking tape the first time so I made sure to de-sticky it some. I taped the horizon line, used my pan pastels for the sky, masked the moon, added clouds. I was happy. Removed the tape...OMG!! See the big dark out cropping? Yep, torn aper! I thought it was a goner for sure! I decided to add some blue just in case it looked good (wasn't very hopeful). The tear was so dark I could see it was really an organic shaped land mass...who knew LOL. I added the Liquid Applique to look like water crashing on the land. There is one more boo boo but I'm not telling!

My next take will be using water color.
