Some Fun Challenges~

Today I made a card using the sketch from Always Playing with Paper #4, Time Out Challenge; masculine birthday card, and Pals Paper Arts; color -

I used Memory Box dies for the Happy, Birthday, and the balloon is from MFT Party Balloons and dies.


I am also playing again in Virginia View Challenge with stencils, along with Keep it Simple; stencils.  This time I wanted to try direct water coloring with a stencil.  Oh yea!  Can I tell you I am impressed :) - so fun.

I used MFT's On the Diagonal stencil and just water brushed the stripes using distress inks.  My sentiment is from STAMPlorations, Chevron & Arrows.

That's it for me -- have an inky week end!!

Thanks for stopping by~

Hi, Vicky!! I have so enjoyed all your work that I have missed out on while I was away from blogland for two weeks!! I have been spending all my spare time knitting and crocheting, and in the process fell behind on blogvisits.
You have really been busy - 18 posts in two weeks and all your cards are so beautiful!! I love what you do with paper and ink!!
I love the watercoloured stencil
card - such a lovely effect you got and great colours you've worked with. Lovely (as all the other cards are too!!)
Have a super weekend!!
Greetings from Africa!!
