About A Boy.

It's time for a new challenge with the 
"Southern Girls"
the theme this time is 
For my card I used the lovely digi image 
by Sasayaki glitter who are one of the sponsors this time. Please check out the challenge blog for full details of the sponsors this time and the challenge rules.

This image is so cute, I really felt that he suited a CAS layout. I just coloured him using copics adding depth to the shading with Polychromos. I then just set the image within a frame adding a strip of washi tape, some die cut stars and a greeting.

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
CCT474, Birthday,
CSD, Men/boy,
MTTC343, No DP.

Buds And Blooms.

It's time for a new challenge with
 This time the theme is 
Buds and Blooms.

I stamped and coloured the Dragon pods using alcohol incs. I then stamped Background Script to the background
Now, something a it different or me this time, I had a play with Yupo paper, now if you've not tried it, it's a bit addictive, you can make some wonderful effects using it. 

I added dots of alcohol inks and used my Spritzer tool to blast air across the paper creating some different mixing I then got a bit carried away and held my bottle of blending solution so that a droplet was held at the nozzle. I then blasted it across the paper with air so that it created a wonderful effect. It's so addictive! 
I then brushed over the paper using Mica powder, it doesn't show on the paper but the shimmer on the Yupo looks fantastic!

For my second card I again created my background on the Yupo, I then used a drop of blending solution on a piece of sponge to lift some of the ink before stamping the
 Moon Pods using Archival ink. I then carefully dipped a damp paintbrush into my Kiwi Mica powder and used it to paint the spots and follow the lined of the stem. Once dry I lightly brushed over the Yupo with the Mica powder.

I'm using these cards for the following challenges:-
Artistic Stamper April, Backgrounds,
