Beepin Awesome

We are having a special anniversary challenge this month 
  with extra fun and games in the 7 Kids Facebook page as well!

 
 You can find all the details about the celebration HERE.

As always the challenge is ANYTHING GOES and I wanted
to share my DT card with you today

 I used The Greeting Farm's Beepin Awesome stamp set
for the background and the sentiment. I embossed them in white embossing powder.
The boy is from The Greeting Farm's  Mega Mini Go Time stamp set.

I colored the background by blending several colors of Distress Oxide inks.
They blend so well!! Then I flicked water on it to create the cool distressed effect.  The two circles behind the boy were also colored with distress inks.  I  love how I can make my own colored paper to match :) It's BEEPIN AWESOME!!!!
Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to check out all the fun we will be having this week on the blog and Face book page. All info is HERE.
Happy Crafting :)

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 :)

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
