CS Take It Make It: Take a Technique

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with CS Take It Make It Design Team for our April Challenge!

This months challenge is going to be super fun!!  Its all about getting Your Color On!

You can color anything as long as its bright, vibrant and full of color.  No monochrome, dark or grungy projects, they need to be BRIGHT!! You don’t have to use every color in the rainbow all at once…but think along those lines!!

I told you this well be super fun.  I was apart of a 30 day coloring challenge last month so this will be awesome to continue that fun.

Take a look at my project:

Hello my friend (CS)

If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you will know that I love these birds.  I think they are the funniest image ever.

They are such great images to practice your coloring on.  I’ve used all different types of mediums with them.

For this card I used distress inks to watercolor this bird.  I love how picked raspberry and mustard seed blend together.

Check out this card:

Hello Hello You (CS)

I told you I can’t get enough of this stamp set!  LOL!!

Creating these cards were so easy and stress relieving.

Here’s how:

1. I cut my watercolor paper panel a couple sizes smaller then my black card base.

2. I stamped Tim Holtz Bird Crazy onto my watercolor panel using Ranger Archival Jet Black Ink.  I used that ink because its waterproof, which means no smudging!!

3. I spread Picked Raspberry and Mustard Seed Distress Ink onto my craft sheet.  I spritz it with water and used my paintbrush to add the colors to my watercolor panel, very freely.

4. Once I had enough color on my paper I heat set it.

5. I used Winnie and Walters The Big, the Bold and the Happy to stamp my sentiment using the same jet black ink.

6. I adhered the watercolor panel to my black card base using fun foam. The fun foam keeps the watercolor panel straight and even.

7. For the second card I used Evergreen Bough and Mustard Seed Distress Ink.

I love how my cards turned out.  They are nice a bright with color!!

Crazy Birds…

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with the Less is More challenge.  Its One Layer Week and the subject should include an Animal.

Less-Is-More-HeaderI’ve been playing along with Kathy’s 30 days of coloring challenge and I finally got my hands on Tim Holtz Crazy Birds stamp set and had to color them in.

Take a look at my card:

Happy Your My Friend

Don’t you just love these birds??  When I first saw these birds, I wasn’t a fan but then I saw all the amazing things everyone was creating with them.  So I decided that I need to get this set and I made the best choice ever.

I used my new Zig Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolor set.  Can I just say these are so yummy!!  Totally cream.

The stamped sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp Flowers On My Mind stamp set.

All I did was take my time and watercolor each image and letting it dry.

So what do you think?  Let me know. I think they are so cute, LOL!!!

CASology 130 – Friend

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with the new CASology Challenge!

I have to admit, the cue card this week had me stumped for a minute.  I wasn’t sure what to create or even were to begin.  Its not that the word was hard because it wasn’t, I just didn’t now what to do.

You see, for this challenge I love thinking out of the box.  I always look in my dictionary for another meaning of the word.  For this cue, it was hard to get an alternative meaning.  So, I decided to go back to the basics and just play with the my  stamps with no deep meaning behind it!!

Here is the Cue Card:

Week 130 - FriendSo you see what I mean.  When you see the word “Friend”, you know what it means hands down.  How do you interpret that word?

Here is what I came up with:

Friends ForeverI went back the basics here!  I stamped and colored.  I searched my stamps for a stamp set that would either represented a friendship or the word friend.

I came across Lawn Fawn’s Feathered Friends stamp set.  The light bulb went off, how perfect is this set.

My card is simple as simple can be. This is how I created it:

1. I cut my white cardstock to an A2 size card (4.25 x 5.50) scored at 5.50.

2. I stamped all of the images from the stamp set on the front of my card.

3. I used Copic markers to color my image: R22, R24, Y11, Y13, YR68, E35, E37.

4. I added some Clear Wink of Stella to the hearts.

5. That was it!  My card shows the friendship between the two birds.  What could be better then that!!

Don’t forget to check out what my fellow DT members have created.
