Be strong, Hold on


Greetings! It is time, once again, for a new challenge over at Inkspirational! This time, we have a photo to inspire us. I love this photo! Probably as it suits my decorating style.


 
For my project, I created a card. I began by placing a stencil by Stencil Girl over a water color panel. I then sprinkled several shades of blue Magicals over the stencil and sprayed with water. The focal point at the bottom is an image by Dina Wakely as are the sentiments.
 
I hope that you will stop over to see what the rest of the design team has created and then create a project of your own to share with us.  Hugs, Yvonne

Mademoiselle de Paris


Greetings! It is time again for a new challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenge.  This time, our theme is all about "Feminine."  You will be absolutely delighted with the varied samples of the design team and we hope that you will be inspired to create a project of your own to share with us at FSC.  Remember, stamping must be the focal point of your project. One lucky participant will win a free stamp courtesy of Ink Art Designs

For my own project, I began with a water color panel. I spritzed various colors of Distress Inks onto the panel and added water. The beautiful stamp is by Carabelle Studio and stamped with archival ink by Catherine Pooler. The textured lace is a stencil by Tim Holtz as are the flowers. The ribbon is from my stash. Not my first thought, when thinking of feminine, but in the end, I went where my heart led and I am pleased.  Hugs, Yvonne

Later, Gator!


Greetings everyone.  I am here today with the June 2017 Challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu where the theme is "add a touch of pink or purple to your project."  I hope that you will pop on over to Eclectic Ellapu to see what the design team has dreamed up for you and then create and share a project of your own.  For my project, I stamped a flamingo and alligator by Stampotique and added Brushos and a sentiment, also by Stampotique.  I enjoyed making this one! Hugs, Yvonne

Lots of Windows!

 
Greetings! I can only think it has to do with losing Jack, but I must apologize for my delay in posting several projects that were due this weekend.  For my first post, I have created a card for the new challenge over at Inkspirational where the theme is "windows!" I do hope that you will pop on over to see the varied, and delightful offerings of the rest of the Design Team. 
 
 
After carefully looking through all my stamps and stencils, the only windows I had were huge (9"x12") so I opted to ink up this new to me stamp of a building with lots of windows by Paper Artsy.  I tried a new ink pad by Catherine Pooler.  All I can say is wow! If you struggle to get full coverage, struggle no more! The buildings were watercolored with TomBow Markers and I doodled around the border with an Ultrafine Sharpie. A few spritzes of Distress Ink splattered with a brush completes my card.  Thanks for everyone's patience.  Hugs, Yvonne

Beep...Beep

 
Greetings! My post today is for the new challenge over at Inkspirational where are working with the Word Prompt "Urban." 
 
I have been fascinated recently with all the stamps and dies you can purchase around cityscapes! I guess I'm just a city girl at heart! My card was created with Gelatoes and a variety of stamp images from Stampotique. I really had fun with this one! I hope you will stop over to see the really cool makes of the rest of the Design Team and then create a project of your own to share with us.  Thanks for stopping by! Hugs, Yvonne

Go Wild or Go Home!

 
Greetings! It is time again for a new challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenge! The theme this time is to "Go Wild." Please visit FSC to see all the different directions the design team went for inspiration and then we hope that you will create a project of your own to share with us! I began with a piece of kraft paper. I had some left over paint from another  project and just wildly, with abandonment, squiggled paint onto the panel. It seemed like a perfect background for our challenge! The focal images and sentiments are by Crafty Individuals. The spotted matting was recycled from a shopping bag. We have a new sponsor over at Fashionable Stamping Challenge, our very own Dot Leathbridge, who's dream has come true with her very own shop called Ink Art Designs! Remember, ours is a stamp challenge, so stamping must be the focal point of your project. One lucky participant will win a  stamp from generous Dot! Thanks for stopping by!

Feathers Galore

 
Greetings! Late again with my post for Inkspirational! On vacation for a week and lost track of time!
 
 
This time, our challenge theme is the photo above.  I went with what I saw in the photo, feathers, and earth tone colors. I used my new Distress Oxide Inks and a very old stamp set from Stampington Company. I hope that you will check out the lovely inspiration pieces by the design team and then submit one of your own. Thanks for stopping by. Hugs, Yvonne
