Paper and Ink Imaginings

Here is another stab at last week’s Splitcoaststampers Color Challenge, Cherry Pie Delight (Cherry Cobbler, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight).

Actually, this background was my first attempt, BUT, it did not turn out as I imagined, and I set it aside to dry (I don’t throw wet paper into my circular file!). When it was dry, I decided that even if it didn’t turn out as I thought it would, it was interesting. I overstamped and embossed the tulips in black.

Thinking of You Card – CC481

This week’s Splitcoaststampers color challenge is titled So Smoky & Slushy. The colors are So Saffron, Smoky Slate and Strawberry Slush. With dessert option of twine.

I was inspired by the card that Julie Ebersole did for Monday’s (June 2, 2014) Hello, Monday feature on Ellen Hutson’s The Classroom blog.

I embossed the flowers in white on watercolor paper, then spritzed with water. I don’t have reinkers in any of the challenge colors, but I had 2 of the 3 colors in marker form, and the 3rd in an ink pad. So, I used 2 markers and a blender pen (with the ink pad) to get color into the water on the paper. I finally bagged the blender pen – it didn’t work the way I anticipated, and pulled out my aqua brush to spread the Smoky Slate.

Thanks for stopping by!

This week’s Splitcoaststampers Color Challenge is “Real White Night” (Real Red, Whisper White, Night of Navy) with dessert option of stars.

I started out thinking I was making a Father’s Day card or birthday card for my father-in-law. But this card happened instead. Just go with it, right? I have been so busy the past few weeks, my mojo is not sure what to make of crafting time!

I punched stars with various punches, and embossed the largest ones in an embossing folder.

This was my last week as guest designer on the Splitcoaststampers Color Challenge. It has been a great honor to participate with the hostesses and fellow guest designer for the month of April – thanks again for asking me to play along.

This week’s challenge (CC476) is Wonderful Pizzazz Petals (Wisteria Wonder, Pear Pizzazz, Primrose Petals), with the dessert option of metallic gold.

Dessert being my FAVORITE thing, I went crazy with gold.
