sailing…


You may look at this card and think, “What kind of sport is this?”.
But I assure you sailing in a sport and I saw it every Summer on my way back and forth to work over through the park near Lake Ontario!
The card is white card stock with the image from Stampin’ Up “Uncharted Territory”stamped with Versafine onyx black ink and colored with graphite pencils.
The sentiment, inknown company, was stamped with the same ink.

not a cadillac…


No, it’s not a pink Cadillac but it is pink for the challenge.
Not sure they ever made a Mustang in pink!
The base card is pink striped patterned card stock.
On white card stock I stamped the car from Unity Stamp Co. “All Cylinders” with MFT extreme black hybrid ink and colored it with Copic markers before cutting it out and foam taping it to the card front. 
To finish I stamped the sentiment from the set with Versafine onyx black ink.

patchwork tree…


Another set going in the bag for the resale store when I get done with this posting.
So many wonderful sets that I have used and used but need to allow others to enjoy them now.
The base card is white card stock.
The sentiment and images are from Wplus9 Design Studio “Pretty Patches : Tree”.
The sentiment was stamped with Memento rich cocoa ink.
The tree stamped with Gina K. Designs fresh asparagus ink.
The heart stamped with Gina K. Designs cherry red cola ink.
I used my Tim Holtz stamping platform to get the heart centered just right!



beautiful butterfly…


This image comes from Unity Stamp Co. and I felt it was perfect for this challenge.
No, the butterfly isn’t that large so I thought how I could make it stand out.
That’s when I decided to use graphite pencils to color the image and Copic to color the butterfly.
The base card is white card stock.
On that I stamped the sentiment and image from Unity Stamp Co. “Let Beauty Surround You” with MFT extreme black ink.
After coloring everything I sprayed the card with hairspray to set the pencil.


a little birdie…


Digging through my older stamps to try and find things to donate to the shop I volunteer in and I ran across a bunch of Santoro Gorjuss Girls.
The base card is white card stock with a layer of patterned paper, the back side (solid) first then the actual pattern.
This gave me the colors to color in the girl with Copic markers.
I die cut a piece of white card stock and stamped her and the sentiment from Newton’s Nook Designs “Newton’s Birthday Flutter”.
This I applied with foam squares.
