Creativity

Happy Thursday! I'm Hosting the 7kids challenge blog today
 and wanted to to share this card with you
With the Tim Holtz Water Color Kit I had everything I needed to make this card.

The kit features an assortment of Distress Watercolor crayons and several tools this kit has everything you need to learn the techniques needed to create watercolor art Includes distress crayons (festive berries, fossilized amber, chipped sapphire, rusty hinge, peeled paint, seedless preserves), paintbrush, mini archival ink pad (black soot), clear stamp set, acrylic block, watercolor cardstock, instruction booklet.
 
It was super fun to do!!! I water colored the paper with the distress crayons and then tore pieces from each color and glued  it down on the card front and then stamped the Butterfly on top. I stamped the sentiment and then using a paint brush I flicked different colors all over the paper.
I added Limoncello Nuvo crystal drops to finish it off.

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Crafting :)
Hugs,

I love the sentiments that come with this set and loved making these cards.

Color Outside The Lines



Hi everyone.  I'm here, and on The 7kids challenge blog to share an altered sign with you today.


 I saw this sign at Goodwill and knew it would be perfect for my craft room.
All it needed was the COLOR !!!!!
I was so excited to get to work on the idea I had for this, that I forgot to take a before picture.  oops!!!
Just know that all the lettering was white.  I just couldn't leave it that way. LOL



So I got out some of my stencils and used Tim Holtz Distress Paint
to make it COLORFUL!!!!






 I loved COLORING OUTSIDE THE LINES!!!!
I think it turned out pretty cool.  Just like I imagined it would and that rarely happens. LOL!!!!
 Hope this inspires you to alter something fun.  Thanks for stopping by.
Happy Crafting :)
Hugs,
Michele

Merry and Bright

Hi all. With Arizona being under an excessive Heat warning until Sunday, We're talking
 close to 120 degrees!!!!! what's a gal to do?
Make Christmas cards of course!!!!!  
I'm also Hosting on the 7kids challenge blog today 

While making this card I retreated to my air conditioned craft room,
   turned the ceiling fan on HIGH and pretended to be in Santa's work shop LOL!!!

The sentiment I used came from   The doodle-greetings stamp set by Tim Holtz
I embossed the sentiment with black embossing powder.
For the Background I used Distress Oxide inks in

I felt a little cooler after making this Christmas card so I guess I'll be making more before the week's through LOL!!!!  anything to keep my mind off of the HEAT!!!

Thanks for stopping by and Happy crafting :)
Hugs,
