What a crazy, busy, hectic life!! I haven't had much time to be up in my craft room lately, and I was feeling the need to be creative yesterday. So I snuck up there for a few hours and just had some fun! It was wonderful to get my fingers all inky and create. I have some new things to play with and had a wonderful time. Hopefully, it won't be so long till the next time.

One of the new things I have is the aqua painters. So I got out some watecolor paper and tried them out. Here is one of the cards I made.

SplitCoast was having a color challenge and I chose to use pistachio pudding, pool party, sahara sand, and black. I used the aqua painters to brush the color on after I stamped it in Stazon black. Out of the ones I did, I think this is my favorite.

In all my playing around, I made another card that is really out of my style comfort zone. But I had so much fun! Moxie Fab World is having a challenge with stencils. I tried using this stencil once before but didn't like the way it came out, so I set it aside. I remembered it and got out my distress inks to play. This is the one my family liked the best.

  1. Oh this is a beautiful take on the challenge! Don't be afraid to leave the background plain and unembossed, it can really showcase your creation...
