Ellen Hutson Pin Sights Challenge , January mood board


Hello, crafty friends!
I enjoyed Sunday afternoon doodling with watercolor.
Being inspired by the beautiful mood board from the current Pin Sights challenge at Ellen Hutson blog , I made this card.



This is the inspiration mood board.
(Click the image to link to the blog)



To begin, I stamped Mondo Hydrangea on a watercolor paper using Versafine onyx black ink, then watercolored it using Daniel Smith watercolor paints.



Then I splattered some black and gold inks, wrapped the panel with pink ribbon, and then foam mounted it onto a cardbase.
As a final touch, I put some Sparkling Clear Sequins Mix by Pretty Pink Posh. 
Frankly speaking, I just forgot to stamp sentiment. Hope this card would be for any kinds of greetings!




Daniel Smith paints I used are :
Rose of Ultramarine, Ultramarine Turquoise, Prussian Blue, Quinacridone rose, Blue Apatite Gen, New Gamboge, Sap Green, Undersea Green, Prussian Green 

To color hydrangeas, I mixed three different colors of purple/blue/turquoise, added layers of colors until I'm satisfied.
For the splatters, I used some gold and black ink from prima marketing watercolors.

Thanks for reading this post.
Have a good day!
Marge

Hello, there !
It's a New Release Day at Simon Says Stamp today!
You can see the brand new SSS Love Release HERE.

https://www.simonsaysstamp.com/category/Shop-Simon-Releases-Love



I'm going to share two cards featuring "Sprinkle Heart" wafer dies from the brand new SSS Love Collection.




The Sprinkle Heart die is perfect to make a small heart-shaped window !
I die cut a white cardstock using Sprinkle Heart and Wonky Rectangles Waffer Dies from Simon Says Stamp, then made a shaker card.
Sentiment was chosen from Handwritten Love Stamp Set, stamped with Versafine ink and clear heat-embossed .


For the first card, I used red color as a focal point.





For the second card, light purple is the main color.




Now, two cards were just finished very quickly by just one die-dicutting and stamping :)






 💚💚💚



The next day, I made one more card using the Sprinkle Heart Die.
I stamped a cute critter image and colored with copic markers.




Sequins are Metallic Bronze and Metallic Rosegold sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

[Ellen Hutson] January Mix It Up Challenge with Concord&9th

Hello, there!
We need to mix Concord&9th and Essentials by Ellen products.
I have several products for each brand, so this looked very exciting.
What shall I choose and mix? It's such a fun question, isn't it? 
So here goes my card.



I chose Cozy Lady set from Essentials by Ellen, Layers of Love Dies and You're My Person Stamp set from Concord&9th.




I colored cozy lady with copic markers, and diecut it using coordinating dies.





  Then, I matched the image with heart cut background.




I cut a few strips from the heart frame to make a small window, inked edges with a distress ink, then stamped a sentiment inside the frame. 




Then I stamped blocked sentiments from "You're My Person" Stamp set, and hand-cut it.



To add cozy feeling, I put some enamel dots. 







Thanks for reading this post.
Enjoy your day!
