Chase Your Dreams

Another Friday with Flair and this week I've got a simple, semi mixed media card to share with you. I do LOVE experiments and especially to use things leftover from one project for another.  While I used a printed card for this, the layering pieces are actually scraps from other projects.  The first layer and the butterfly are from acrylic paint paper with watercolors cleaned off a brush on it, and the middle bright blue layer is from when I had too much paint on my brush. I save everything.


I wanted a few other colors on the butterfly, so I added some ink and then went over a bit of it with a gold marker.  I wanna donate this card to OWH so no glitter, but I love how the gold accented the wings.

Just a few challenges today:

Thanks so much for looking and happy crafting.  Enjoy your weekend.  Laters!!

**SPRING** Challenge Reminder with Crafts2Celebrate!

It's our reminder post at Crafts2Celebrate and we're creating Spring cards!  You can play with either an Easter or a Spring themed card.

I was really excited to use quilling on this card.  I know, I know, quilling is old.  Really old.  And it's really slow-going so that's why I hadn't done it in like two years.  So I got a battery operated quilling tool, and boom.  Card finished.

One Last Bunny

You know me, I'm always making holiday cards after the holiday ends cause I never have time to actually make them before the holiday.  (Usually cause I'm catching up from the previous holiday!)  This is (hopefully) my last Easter card of 2015.  It's also my (last minute!) entry for the Unity Stamps Be Inspired Challenge.  I decided to follow the sketch this month:


I didn't have room for the sentiment on top but I really like how mine came out.


Okay I have NO natural light here so the sentiment is coming out a little dark.  But I promise it says "Happy Easter" :D

Oh and this really is a pointless piece of info but this card has no dies.  I ALWAYS use dies.  I did use a punch but that's it.  It wasn't even intentional.

I'm entering a few challenges of course:

Birthday Balloons

Happy Hump Day!  (Also known as, happy sad Wednesday with no new Arrow ep!)  I've got an awesome birthday card to share with you today that I made for the progressive challenge on the Art By Miran Facebook Group.  It's such a fun group and the monthly digi challenge keeps me creating.

I knew the minute I looked at this image that I wanted to make a shaker card.  The balloons literally came to me during a catnap.  I love how it turned out and the bright, summery colors.


This is an oversized card, and of course the shimmery cardstock didn't really photograph well.


In this one you can kind of see that the balloons are glittery.
