Hello! Hope you are having a good week!
I wanted to share some cards I made for the Hope You Can Cling To Challenges at Splitcoast using the Sparkle & Cheer stamps and dies from Taylored Expressions. It’s always fun to see a stamp set used in more than one way… so here are three different ways for you.
The background for all my cards was made from one sheet of watercolor paper. I tapped ink pads (Ranger Distress Rusty Hinge & Vintage Photo & Memento Bahama Blue) onto a craft sheet, misted with water and then pressed my watercolor paper into the wet ink. I let my paper dry and then repeated the process. I splattered a little pink and white paint and smeared on just a teeny bit of Stickles before the last layer dried.
On this card I smeared a little bit of Gesso behind my die cut.

This is my card for this week’s Mix-ability Challenge on Splitcoast.
I was inspired by the layout of this pretty card by Courtney Kelly. Her card was pinned here: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/445152744390202312/ .
I took Courtney’s clean and simple card layout and mixed media’s it up a bit with ink splatters and some white and black acrylic paint. I splattered the background and then stenciled (Ranger Bubble Stencil) with white paint. Once that dried I added some Electric Purple ink on top through the stencil.
