Simple Circle Flowers

This technique makes flower shapes from simple 
circles....different folds and inks make different floral shapes.  
I used smaller circles for the flower "buds" and 3 larger circles 
for the fully bloomed one.
Circle dies by Spellbinders and flourish
die by Cheery Lynn
I used fancy scissors for the buds
I sponged Distress inks on both sides of my circles
before folding them into flower shapes

Perky Pumpkins

I lined up the circle die and stamped thru 
the circles so images are inside. 
I added vines with micro glue dots. Done!

Visual Artistry

I masked with low-tack tape (still tore my paper a bit) and smudged PanPastels, then stamped with Memento and sprayed fixative. Added color to butterflies with Spectrum Aquas.
One layer cards are always a challenge for me, wonder why that is?

Technique: Galaxy Backgrounds

I began blending distress inks with a TH blending tool in a circular motion, then edged with black. I spritzed some water and flicked some Luna Lights inks on for stars.  
I think the white spots emulate the galaxy "look" and add lots of depth to the finished work. I added a computer generated saying and some silver fibers behind to stand in for moon rings.....not sure I like it but it's there now.
Using a different combo of ink colors will generate a whole different look!

Rainbow Sunshine

I sponged Distress inks on white glossy, inked over some stencils and layered the black diecut (by Tailored Expressions), then I cut the word twice (black & white) offset it and popped it up.
I am hoping the colors mimic a rainbow and the center circle a sun. I missed last week as I had a houseful of grandkids underfoot.....

Tires Or Testicles

I did a watercolor wash and stamped the little truck twice and cut off the box to lift it up, layered that over the Roxs and popped it up. Added a stamped border and done! I hope the verse isn't too offensive but I got a laugh from it....

Got The Blues?

I saw the new challenge at
is to make a card using the colors
blue and brown.
I used Distress inks for the colors and 
stamps by PTI
"Brushed Off"
"Signature Greetings II"
Added some twine and raffia
from my stash and there you have it.
