Hello Sunshine

Hello, all! =) Here is a card for CAS(E) this Sketch #72 as well as for Inspiration Journal's April Challenge. Here is a look of the sketch.


Here is my take on it.


Inspiration Journal's April Challenge theme is "A Few of My Favorite Things." I created a watercolor background and used Lawn Fawn stamps and Glossy Accents. Create projects using some of your favorite craft supplies for a chance to win!


I was trying to get a sunny, springy background with watercolor for the little chicks from Lawn Fawn's Hello Sunshine set. Each of the chicks is then covered in a thick layer of Glossy Accents for a little texture and interest.

Watercolor Wonder & Wet Paint

Happy Sunday, my friends! =) Here is a card that I made for Runway Inspired Challenge #57 and this week's Make It Monday. Here is the inspiration photo from Runway Inspired Challenge.


Here is my card.


I used the colors from RIC #57 and the gelato + water technique from this week's Make It Monday video for my card.


The multimedia paper is trimmed to the size of my card base. I scribbled the gelatos directly on the brush strokes from Papertrey Ink's Watercolor Wonder set, spritzed them with water before stamping on the panel. The sentiment from Wet Paint set is stamped with Smokey Shadow ink.

That's all I have for now. Have a fabulous day, my friends! =)

Mama Elephant April Photo Inspiration Challenge

Hello, all! It's time for a new challenge over at Mama Elephant Blog! Here is the new challenge.

Growing up in Taiwan, we all know about Thousand Origami Cranes. Even though I don't have a thousand cranes on my card, I am hoping that the thought counts and it will brighten up someone's day! =)

That's all I have. Don't forget to find out what the other design team members created for this challenge and all the challenge details here! The challenge starts today and ends on May 5th, the winner will win a member spot on the challenge team! =)
