Pinkfresh Studio Challenge




Good Day!! Today I have a card for the Pinkfresh Studio February Monthly challenge. This is the second time I have made a card for the challenge.... but, the first time getting it entered in time :-)

I fell in love with the colors and that was the inspiration for my card. 


I played with old and new products. The background was created with the fairly new coverplate die Sparkling Diamonds. Then I hot foiled the Folk Garden foil plate in gold... gorgeous!! I am definitely loving hot foiling. Once it was hot foiled I used the coordinating stencils to add the colors from the inspiration photo... Coral Reef, Candy Apple, Mermaid Cove, and Aquamarine. Next, I die cut the image with the coordinating die and adhered to the Sparkling Diamonds cover plate. The sentiment is from the Fancy Scripts hot foil plate and coordinating die. I am fairly new to Pinkfresh Studio and I love the coordinating products. 

Here's a pic so you can see the gorgeous gold foiling....


Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!

Altenew Inspiration Challenge

Good Friday evening. Hope you had a great week and plans for fun/relaxing through the weekend.

I have not posted to my blog for a while.... crazy busy!! AND.... I have not created a card for fun in a long, long time!!

Recently Altenew had a sale on the Watercolor Coloring Book with the 12 pan set.

I already have the 36 pan set but, wanted to practice my watercoloring and thought the Watercolor Coloring book would be the perfect avenue!

Also thought I would submit my first practice to Altenew's Inspiration Challenge.





So, I wrote down pink, yellow, and green for the colors....


As you can see, I did use those colors but, they are a little off from the inspiration picture.

Oh well, I did enjoy working with the Watercolor Coloring Book. I have one more image that I will post in the next few weeks and several more in the book to play with. I have to admit- I threw one in the garbage :-)

Hoping you are healthy and safe!!
