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!!

Now its your turn to play along with us.

Someone Like You….

I’m back again with another card for Less is More week 168 theme challenge. This weeks challenge is “Makes me smile”.  It’s simply that…something that makes you smile.

I was surfing Pinterest and came across a card that made me smile so I decided to make my own version of the card.  I used three stamp sets to create this card.

Take a look:

Someone Like You should be celebrated everyday

The sentiment and the colors on this card makes me happy.  I hope it makes you happy as well.
