Sharing Two Swap cards

Hi!  I just wanted to pop in quick to share a couple of cards I made for a swap.  We were supposed to use something we got for Christmas.  I got the stamps and also some Brusho water color pigments which I used to water color the images.  I also got a new little bow die that is used on the 2nd card.  I put some small pieces of foam board inside the bow loops so it wouldn't smash flat when mailing.  

The Brushos are very intense and it takes some practice to get the shade you want.  I's seen some beautiful backgrounds people have made just letting the water spread the pigments around, but so far my backgrounds aren't turning out as pretty!  Anyway, here are the cards.

Anything Goes at Paper Ala Mode

Hi everyone!  The Paper Ala Mode challenge this week is Anything Goes!  I used a cute Cow and Moon image from QKR Stampede to make this birthday card.

I used some distress inks to water color the background and then sprayed it with water to get some texture going.  Then I added some small stars with a white gel pen.

Come share what you're working on with  us!

Paper Ala Mode - Girly challenge

The Paper Ala Mode challenge is up! This week is all about girls - make a girly card! We are featuring digital papers from a new sponsor - Artwild Flowers, and images from All Dressed Up. My card uses one of the freebies from All Dressed Up's blog. The paper is called Crystal Ice, and the multi stars paper is also from Artwild Flowers. I printed both papers on glossy card stock.

Come play with us!
