Birthday Stars - Momenta Brand Ambassador Post!!

Happy Hump Day!!  I've got another Momenta Brand Ambassador post for you today, with a quick birthday card!!   I seriously found out I needed this card twenty minutes before I had to leave with it.  I actually love how it turned out and plan to make more in other colors.  I used the Vibrant Combo Paper Pad to create my card base.  Then I stamped one of the sentiments from the Birthday Stamp Set on vellum and added a few Wooden Star Stickers to finish it off.  The stars kind of frame the whole thing to me.

Watercolor Wow - Brea Reese Brand Ambassador Post

Happy Tuesday!!  It's time for my latest Brea Reese brand ambassador post, and today I wanted to showcase all the amazing options Brea Reese has for watercoloring!  I created four cards, each with the same stamp but colored with a different medium.


This first card was made with the Glitter Inks!  I painted with a Water Brush so I could control the depth of the color.  I used Ultramarine Blue, Lake Blue and Violet for the flowers, and a mixture of Gold, Raw Umber and Pthalo Green for the leaves.



Now my newest Brea Reese obsession is the Liquid Metals!  I mixed the Silver with Watercolor Inks in Medium Magenta, Pink and Violet.  By mixing the inks up myself, I can control how much metallic sheen I want (SPOILER ALERT: I always want a lot!).


See those awesome spatters?  I made those with the leftover inks when I finished painting the flowers.  Just load up your brush and flick it with your fingertips!

I painted this one with the Watercolor Inks.  Some with water, some straight from the bottle.  Crimson Red, Medium Magenta and Pink.  I love how you can get so many shades of each color.




And this last one was colored with the awesome Watercolor Creams!

**SUMMER** New Challenge with A Snowflake's Promise!!

Hi everyone!  It's a new challenge at A Snowflake's Promise and as always our theme is Summer!  We don't have a sponsor this challenge so we could make whatever we wanted!  I always think of the water when I think of summer, so of COURSE I made a(nother) mermaid card!

**NO PATTERNED PAPER** New Challenge with Simply Create Too!

Happy Thursday!  It's a new challenge at Simply Create Too and our theme this month is NO Patterned Paper!!  Not an overly easy one for me! I've been in a very patriotic mood lately, but since the 4th is past now I made a red, white and blue card that's Wonder Woman inspired.  I looooved the old Wonder Woman show as a child.  The new movie, not so much.  I'm a traditionalist!

Momenta Brand Ambassador Post!!

Happy Friday!!  I've got another Momenta Brand Ambassador post for you today with a trio of magical themed cards!  I used the amazing Watercolor Foil paper pad for these cards.  They make everything pop and give just that little needed shine.  I used the Unicorn Puffy Stickers to embellish the cards.  I love how they turned out. I'm going to give these to the girls I babysit for along with some little crafty goodies in a few weeks.
