One of us is right!

Greetings! Thank you for stopping by my blog today. My card today is for the recent new challenge over at Inkspirational where we have a color challenge:  Neutrals

I am a day late in posting. My husband is quite ill at the moment, and I am so appreciative of the Design Team's support of allowing me to continue to contribute, albeit a bit late.
My card is simply sprayed with Distress Ink Stains in Tea Bag and Black Soot. The image is by Stampotique and the sentiment is by Dylusions.
I hope that you will stop over and take a look at all the really cool cards that the rest of the design team created and then create one of your own to share.

Peace on Earth

Greetings and thank you for stopping by my blog! My post today is for the new challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenge where the theme is "Anything Goes!" I hope you will stop over to see what the rest of the Design Team has dreamed up to inspire you and then consider sharing a creation of your own with us. Remember, ours is a stamping challenge so stamping needs to be the focal point of your creation.  One lucky participant will receive a $20 gift voucher from our sponsor, FlonzCraft.
For my piece, I began with a water color panel. I applied several shades of Gelatos and then laid a stencil by Red Lead Paperworks over top and lifted color off with a baby wipe. Torn strips of a book page were added next. The angel by Stampotique was stamped onto scrap water color paper, colored, fussy cut and added to the card front. The sentiment is by Red Lead Paperworks.

Thank you for stopping by. Best, Yvonne

Greetings! It is time for a new challenge over at Inkspirational! This time, the challenge is to create a CAS (Clean and Simple Design) with a touch of sparkle.

I love to see CAS cards, but find them difficult to make. So, this was indeed a challenge for me.  I remembered this dear little boy from Oxford Impressions, the sentiment is from OI, too.  After Stamping the focal image and sentiment, I added some snow with a Tim Holtz Stencil and Distress Ink. For sparkle, I added a bit of Ranger Stickles.

For true CAS card beauty, please stop over to see what the rest of the Design Team has come up with. We hope that you will consider making a sample of your own to share with us. 

Thanks so much for stopping by. I truly appreciate your visits and your comments. Best, Yvonne
