Playing along with The Ton’s May Challenge.


My first card, I choose the challenge line withno-line coloring, non rectangular, and watercolor.

I used The Ton’s Close Up Dalhia and my Zigs to watercolor the image I stamped on some Bristol Smooth paper with Antique Linen Distress Ink. My plan was to do a circle card but I love this image so much I decided to fussy cut along the flower. Once the image was cut, I adhered it to a black card base and the fussy cut the base to match.

I used the Get It Girl sentiment set and heat embossed it in Brutus Monroe Sterling and used a die cut in my stash. To finish the card off, I used some gold washi tape along the edge to add a little sparkle. 

For my second card, I used the same stamp and followed the challenge line for gold, stripe, and watercolor.

I just got the Kuretake Gansai Tambi PearlWatercolors and decided to use them on some black cardstock. I heat embossed the image using Brutus Monroe Guilded and then used the pearl watercolors to fill in the inner part of the image. The pink wasn’t as dark as I wanted so once the first layer dried, I applied a second layer of the pink, and then used the whitecolor to highlight parts of the flower. For the other part of the flower, I used a lavender colored pencil to soften the black color of the cardstock.

For the card base, I took a stripe stencil and used the Heidi Swapp Metallic Texture Paste in White. The sentiment is from The Ton’s Get It Girl and heat embossed in Brutus Monroe Guilded and cut a fun little shape.

Hope you enjoyed the cards and have a great weekend!
