Just Playing On!

I really hope I am not overloading you all with my cards. I am seriously finding so much inspiration in blogland this week I can't stop playing in the challenges :). What I am joining in today?

The Playdate Cafe #186:

I rarely use pink - I like it, I like other stamper's cards made with it, I just rarely use it.  I love it with black and white though, and The Playdate Cafe had just these colors.  Do you recognize the stamps?  Yep, Stampin Up - Essence of Love.

I used a Memory Box die for the bottom border, Piestra Tile.










This next card is a first for me playing in this challenge, Just Add Ink #169


Can you say LOVE THESE COLORS~ So bright and oh my, just stunning.
I used an image from Gina K Designs, Sun Kissed Autumn STV Kit, and Hero Arts, Brush Strokes.  This card makes me happy - I just adore bright!

And, another new challenge.  Now, this one takes me away from cards, [kind of nice for a change], and this is their first challenge!  Mixed Media Color Challenge.  They want the colors to be a focus -- not sure I accomplished that, but I do have the colors.


The challenge also wants at least 2 mediums -- I used gesso and paint.  I love making these journal pages - it really is freeing [and yes, very messy]. I am looking forward to the next challenge.




Thanks for stopping by~

All lovely cards and I must say the one for our challenge I especially like your brush stroke stamp to reflect the look of waves on your gorgeous background. Thanks for joining in with our challenge this week at Just Add Ink.

Love the journalling page, and the cards too - the colours on the hugs card are fabulous!

Hi Vicki. Both cards are GORGEOUS!! Love that die-cut from the first done in black and backed with pink ... so beautiful and a perfect border for your beautiful silhouette stamp.

LOVE the saturated colors of the second card ... wow! Again, fabulous silhouette stamps.

And I'm really intrigued by your journal. I have heard a lot about mixed media, but haven't tried it myself. I've also seen projects using gesso ... so fabulous, but again, haven't tried it. I need to get moving on these new techniques! The journal is so cool and I love the freedom of this type of project. So cool! Loll xx

Wonderful cards Vicki! love the bright colors on the 2nd - and your mixed media page is so fun with all the stampings, shapes and painting! I gave it a shot as well - it IS fun to do something besides a card now and then!
