I am joining 
Sweet Stamp Shop 
for the second release of May .

For these cards I used a couple of the 
new Zodiac sets . 

I kept the designs CAS (according to me ) . 
I wanted the focal point to be the stamp and the Distress Inked background. 
I added a couple of splatters of white acrylic paint to give it a bit of dimension. 
I used the Distress Inks in the colors Milled Lavender, Shaded Lilac and Salty Ocean . 
On the Virgo card I added a bit of Wilted Violet along with the other colors . 

I also created this card using another adorable new set 
from this release 
Spacin' Out .
I combined the sun image with the Rainbow Background set . 
 I used the same color combo as the cards above , 
I did add a bit of Cracked Pistachio to this one . 
 I used Copics to color my images in . 

I would also like to take a moment to thank Altenew for picking my card as one of the winners for 
the April Challenge <3 .

CDD May 2017 Sneak Peek Day 2 ....

Happy Monday everyone !! 
I am so sorry to have been absent . 
We took a family trip to Hawaii . 
We brought my mother in law and mom as well . 

On Mother's Day,  my mom was taken by ambulance to 
emergency out in Hawaii , when we came back she 
had to be taken to emergency once again .
 She was there for a couple of days . 
She is back home now and we are thankful 
for all of the prayers . 

I missed visiting and posting , as you can imagine 
my mind was focused on my mom . 
I was able to get back in my craft room today 
to do a bit of crafting and take a couple of photos. 

The Craftin Desert Divas May 2017 Sneak Peeks 
have begun . Today we are on day 2 and the sneak peek
is for the cute Market Stand stamp set . 

 I also used the new Garden Border Dies that were 
sneak peeked yesterday . 
You can see what my DT sisters created with these dies here

I used Copics to color my images for this card . 
I wanted to keep the red tones for my veggies . 
I added a bit of red to both the carrots and the eggplants. 
 I die cut the garden border die using brown cardstock. 
 For the die cut flowers,  I added Distress Ink in the color 
Fired Brick to a scratch piece of CS and die cut the flowers. 

This was a fun card to create !! I hope you enjoy and feel inspired . 
Thank you so much for stopping by .
Wishing you a wonderful and Blessed day .

Happiest Of Peonies ....

Hello and Happy Thursday everyone !! 
I am stopping by today to share this card I created using 
stamp set 
The Ton stamps. 
 This is such a beautiful set , 
and let me tell you I was intimidated to color this beauty in. 
 I used my Zig Real Brush Markers along with Winsor & Newton water color markers
(these are new to me also ) . 
 I began by stamping my image onto Bristol Smooth cardstock , according to me this was a 
square shaped card (maybe not , lol ) . The ink I used is my favorite one so far for no line watercoloring Memento in Desert Sand. 
 I then began my coloring , I began with the Winsor & Newton marker in the color Mauve . I did several layers . Letting them dry before adding more . 

I hope you enjoy this card and feel inspired to create !! 
Wishing you all a wonderful and Blessed day !!
