Today is another overload post of cards. [This should be it for overload ;)] -- I went on to play in some more challenges yesterday for World Card Making Day, (while DH watched football.)
It all started with the Winnie&Walter list of challenges, then, I joined in a few other challenges along the way. The plus to this post, W&W had separate Iin-linkz (SUPER YAY!)
BASIS: I started with what Shay called a *masterboard for my background. I used an 8.5 x 11 sheet of water colored paper, and using my [so favorite] Dylusional Ink Sprays [Fresh Lime and Lemon Zest], I sprayed the entire sheet. [Have I mentioned how much I LOVE these sprays!] Once the sheet was dry, I cut it down for my card panels and started creating.
Challenge 1 - Water Color with Vanessa
I used a paintbrush to sprinkle water onto the panel, and used a paper towel to blot it off. I love using water color like this - a fun effect. I used Avery Elle Petals & Stems, along with Gina K Designs, Great Sayings [retired].
Challenge 2- Color Challenge with Heather; aqua, mint, yellow and kraft.
Using the *masterboard, I did some Bokeh effect. The shadow behind the happy (Avery Elle; Simply Said) was kraft, but I used too much white pigment on it - oops. I used my Hero Arts Palm Die, and my label maker for the birthday.
Challenge 3 - Sketch with Gayatri
I looked at my stash, and was thrilled to find the perfect stickers to use with this sketch!
See what I mean? Perfect! I put EWW as the sentiment in purple metallic paper, but that didn't even come close to photographing right!
Challenge 4 - Metallic/ Gold with Lydia
I just used one of the cut panels from the *masterboard for this card, while adding some washi tape at the bottom, and some sponged shell dies I also had in my stash. My gold Thank You is from Avery Elle Many Thanks, using Ranger Metallic Gold Embossing Powder.
Challenge 5 - Make it Masculine with Julie
With this *masterboard panel, I used a new Darcie Fall Leaf Embossing Folder I just got. Awesome embossing, nice and deep. I used an image from Inspired By Stamping; Masculine Tags, along with a sentiment from Avery Elle; Laurels. I'll be sending a package to my son and will be including this card.
Challenge 6 - Partial Stamping with Kelly
While you can't see the actual partial I did, I did use this technique. I used Hero Arts Real Leaves, along with some images from Basic Grey; Indian Summer Fauna Stamps. Since this is a Fall card, it qualifies for a few challenges; A2Z Scrapbooking; Fall using Hero Arts, The Male Room; Fall and the colors from The Color Throwdown.
Challenge 7 - Masterboard with Shay While some of my first cards (in this post) used a masterboard, I wanted separate cards for each challenge, so I made another one. Again, I used Dylusions Ink Spray, this time only using one color; Crushed Grape. I have to say, I am not a fan of purple, but WOW I love this shade a lot!
Okay - this is the final W&W challenge. Whew - craziness huh? :) Rather then separate photos, I just have this one, and I will just describe what I did. Vampire; I used Gold Perfect Pearls mixed with water on my worksheet, and ran the panel through it. The Mummy, I used the water sprinkle technique as described from the first challenge. The Flower, I die cut out the flower [Die-namites, Rosy Rose] from the masterboard, and then inlaid it with the gold pieces. The sentiment is from an OOB company. The Bat, I just added washi tape and left the panel alone. My Halloween figures are stickers that I found in my stash. My Halloween cards qualify for The Paper Player's Challenge; Halloween
I had an amazing crafty week end! Thanks to all the challenges, and you all for your encouraging comments! I do love this hobby :)
Thanks for stopping by~
