For the background I used acrylic paints and an old credit card. Really fun to make! Stamped the flowers and some quick coloring with Distress Inks... added a title and some twine and that's it. Super quick and easy.
When I first saw this stamp (Waffle Flower Lacy Stamp) I knew that I had to do a bit of doodling! Such fun! The sentiment is Essentials by Ellen .... with some doodles of course! Added a pop of color - not sure why it always seems to be red... ☺
A very quick post to share a card I made over the week-end. The challenge at Mod Squad this week is to use the Chalkboard Technique. My card is a very simple and easy one. The stamp set is Cas-ual Friday's and the background stamp is Hero Arts. Added a pop of red for a bit of color.
My first project today is a scrapbook layout. It's been a while since I did any scrapping and when I saw the Sketch Challenge at Altenew I was inspired to haul out my supplies.

I painted broad uneven stripes for the background on my 12 x 12 paper. The frame for the photo is chipboard and I first applied gesso, stamped with versamark, heat embossed with Satin Pearl EP and applied ink with my blending tool. Here is a close-up of the embossed resist frame:
The stamps and dies are Altenew Peony Bouqet, Label Love, Calligraphy Alpha and Happy die.
I finished off with a few other embellishments and of course some splatters!
I used yupo paper and alcohol inks to create the rainbow for this card. The stamp and die cuts are Cas-ual Fridays Casual Vine and Dream then Do. I'm playing along the following challenges: Cas-ual Fridays Rainbows ATCAS
I embossed the background and then got really inky with watercolors and distress paints. For the die cut, I used the edge of my ink pad (Distress Oxide) and swiped over the cardstock to create streaks rather than a solid blue color.
The stamps are Crafter's Companion Street Wise and Urban Graffiti.
The die is SSS Painted Happy Birthday.
This was a fun card to make and great for a teenage boy.
Thanks again for visiting and have a wonderful week!
