Poppy Field

It's time for Team 1's Sweet Sunday post! I used the watercolour stamp Poppy Field for today's card. I also used a sentiment stamp from the Freehand Border Phrase Set.


I mixed the crimson and the blue from the Ken Oliver Color Burst Brights set with some water in a mister and made a dark purple. I sprayed the watercolor paper with water, then sprayed the stamp with my purple mist and stamped it on the damp paper. I held it down for about ten seconds to let the colour soak into the paper and then lifted the stamp. I was lucky to find some paper scraps that perfectly match the colour I created with the Color Bursts. I embossed them with a Cricut embossing folder. I added black dots with a Perlen Pen from Viva Decor randomly around the card to finish it off. I love that Perlen Pen. I think I need to buy a whole bunch more in a variety of colours. 

A new challenge was launched on the Rubbernecker Blog on Valentine's Day, so make sure you pop over there and check it out. There are two prizes of $25 and $15 up for grabs!

Fluttering By

Hello! Today I have a card I made using Butterfly Inchies and Fluttering By from Rubbernecker Stamps.



I made the background with the Inchies stamp and Ken Oliver Color Burst pigments. I sprayed a piece of watercolour paper with some water and then sprinkled the orange, yellow and crimson pigments from the Brights collection right on the wet paper. The colours took over and spread creating a colourful background. Because watercolour paper is not smooth, you can't see all the detail of the stamp, but when used on smooth stamping paper, it has nice, clean, detailed lines. It's a perfect stamp for creating a background. I used it on a previous card with Versamark ink and clear embossing powder. You can see that card here: http://colourmyhearts.blogspot.ca/2016/07/rubbernecker-stamps-showcase-butterflies.html . The butterflies are from a Martha Stewart punch, my other paper is from Stampin' Up.

Please stop by the Rubbernecker blog for bi-weekly challenges. We have a new one starting on Tuesday, February 14. The prizes are a $25 gift certificate for 1st prize, and a $15 gift certificate for second prize.

Mardi Gras Colour Challenge


It is time for the first challenge of 2017 at Aurora Wings. Our challenge theme is a colour challenge in honor of Mardi Gras, so we want to see you use green, gold, and purple in your project.

Snapdragon Sprite
I have used Snapdragon Sprite for my card. I coloured the image with Copics, and used a variety of paper scraps from my stash. I also used two different gold ribbons, some paper flowers, a heart that I crocheted myself, and some filigree corners that I painted with Pebéo gold paint.

Please stop by the Aurora Wings Challenge blog and enter your own creation for this challenge. While you are there, check out my fellow DT sisters' amazing projects and leave some love for them. ❤ xx
