Follow your dreams - Creative with stamps #1

Friday April 1, 2016

I have joined a brand new design team..
 Creative with stamps  This is CHALLENGE #1   BUTTERFLIES

You know I often talk about Monika Reeck from Creative with Monika.. well Monika and Lilian started this new challenge blog. It is the first of each month.. so it runs for a whole month.
You can enter up to 3 times and up to 10 other challenges - 11 including our own at Creative with stamps. You must include stamping (digi's are allowed).  You can see all of the rules over at the Creative with stamps blog. I sure hope you play along.

 

April 1st challenge


This is my card.  I took watercolor paper and white embossed an allover sentiment (foreign language) then I squished my ranger ink pads in yellow, purple and blue on my craft sheet and spritzed it and laid the paper into the inks. I then dried the watercolor paper then spritzed my hand with water and flicked it on the watercolor paper and dried it again. I then took a piece of vellum and black embossed the follow your dreams sentiment. I die cut butterflies from Stampin up dies and added them to the card. I then added this to a recollection card stock base. I am so in love with this card.
I hope you play along. It would be nice if you followed us and there is also an option to subscribe to us.. We are excited about this new challenge blog.
