I am off to a pretty good start, just a bit behind in getting this card finished and posted. The plan of course is to do at least one card of the class techniques each day but I am not going to beat myself up if I don't get that accomplished. There is no fun in being stressed.
The card below is simply butterflies traced onto watercolor paper and painted in with wet on wet color. Yeah, it was easy and fun, plus very relaxing.
After the card dried I decided to stamp a greeting on vellum and overlay the vellum onto the card stock which I just painted. I liked how it softened the butterflies and frankly it also sit imperfections.
Thanks for looking,

This is my first try with an Ombre technique using inks and it was actually easier then I thought it would be.
Simon Says: Ombr
A friend of my parents comes to help mom with yard work. My dad died last year and this special person has been so very helpful for the heavy work on the property. I wanted to let him know how grateful I was for his help and thus the creation of the card below.

This morning I ran across a card made by another blogger whose inspiration was off the blog "Cupcake Inspirations" here: http://cupcakeinspirations.blogspot.nl/2016/01/challenge-341.html?m=1
The card is simple linen paper in a off white cream color. I used a Tim Holtz die for the trees, cutting several of them. Each one is then painted with picket Fence Distress Stain and Wink of Stella clear glitter added here and there. (see next picture for the highlighting effect it gives).
Over all a simple card which I think came out wonderfully.
