CC3 Challenge #5- Distress Watercolor

It's watercolor madness! 

More birthday cards I made for my son using the Treats Blueprint set.  I love this set!  There's so much creatively you can do with it!  Using my Mini Distress Inks to create these bright cards was easy peasy!

 
I used the #1 Mini Distress Inks for these cards.
 
 
I did the background with stencil. 
 
 
I fussy cut the ice cream cone then added some rock candy stickles. 
 
Watercolouring these stamps is easy and good messy fun!

 
Card number 2; GUM

 
My son loves gum...and candy.  More fussy cutting with the bottle.  For the pop bottle I added some mini rusty hinge and broken china from Kit #6.
 
 
Gum Please!

 
I stamped #happybirthday from the #hashtags set.
 
Both cards are bright and fun!
 
 
Keeping these simple makes the cards quick to create!  Thanks for taking the time to check them out!

Liberty

HEY USA... IT'S ALMOST YOUR BIRTHDAY!!!!

Celebrating the 4th of July with this patriotic card.  Since I have all these adorable paper dolls I dug through and found this pretty little girl holding the flag and wearing a pretty little sash.  My Mom's husband is American and this is his first July 4th since moving to Canada.  I wanted to whip up a card celebrating his homeland.

I finally get to use some of my seasonal paper with all these patriotic images.

My paper doll is coloured up with distress markers.

I added the dog... even he is inky with antique linen.

I inked the background and used the stars stencil... subtle and pretty.

Happy {almost} July of 4th

I hope all my American Friends a very special Happy Birthday.  Thanks for stopping by for this Canadian version on a Patriotic card. 

Wildflowers

I may live in a snow globe but I can dream of Wildflowers!  
Just dusting off the cobwebs on my blog.  I try to take a creative break or slowdown during Jan/ Feb.  However, I have been creating still!  So, I did just get Sizzix shipment with some new goodies including the new Wildflowers 2!

I have all the floral dies but the wildflowers are my thing!  I love them.  I started cutting the Wildflowers,Wildflowers 2 and the new Small Tattered Florals.  All the flowers are inked with Magenta Nuance Pigment Powders.

The Small Tattered Florals are so teeny!  I just found a set of Stylus Tools... it came in a 3 pack and I wasn't sure if I need 3 but YA I do!  Spray and roll!
Look how the smallest floral rolls with the smallest stylus tool.  SCORE!  Embossing time.

I also got the new Flourish Texture Fadeand it is awesome. For inking I used Eileen Hull Colorbox Color Blends.  Creating strips of color with the built in sponge and blending with my blending pen.

This Watering Can is so adora…
