You Float My Boat from MFT Stamps

Happy Monday crafty friends!   Today we're sharing two super, simple cards.

We created a striped, watercolor background using some Tim Holtz Distress Ink.  We placed the ink on a non-porous surface.  We picked up the ink with a wet, flat brush, and painted the entire sheet of watercolor paper.  We dried the paper with our heat tool (we're too impatient to wait), then painted a second (darker layer) starting approximately 1/2 inch from the top of the paper.  We repeated this process, drying the paper after each layer, then starting the next layer approximately 1/2 inch down from the last layer, until the sheet was completely covered with 1/2 inch stripes.

We cut two backgrounds (one rectangle and one circle) from the watercolored paper.  We added some stamped images, a sentiment and cute heart embellishment.

Thanks for stopping by!

The Cat's Meow from Mama Elephant

Hello everyone!  I know it's been a while since our last post.  We've been busy adjusting to all the changes and hope to be back to a semi normal routine soon.

In the meantime, we have a cute card to share today.  It was created using The Cat's Meow stamp from Mama Elephant.  You'll find a list of the additional supplies we used at the bottom of this post with links to purchase the items.

The image was stamped using copic friendly ink and colored with Copic markers.  We added the HOORAY balloons and sentiment from Mama Elephant's Celebration Balloons set.  After coloring the balloons, we added a layer of Glossy Accents.  Then, used a white gel pen to add some white accents to the balloons and cats.

Here's a closer look at the Glossy Accents we added to the balloons.

We finished the card by framing the image using the Framed Tags Madison Avenue die set from Mama Elephant.
