A peek at Fall

Hi there~

I have a bit of fall here, the design is a bit of Freshly Made Sketches and Shopping our Stash- Silhouettes.

I am not quite ready for the fall cards, but I love to used the Lawn Fawn leaves in white against a colorful background.  My background was first water colored with distress inks, then a coat of antique linen distress ink was sponged over it to get some more depth to the color.  Lastly a bit of orange and red ink was sponged over parts of the panel.

Thanks so much for stopping by!


Good Evening~
I'm playing along with Fusion.  I used both the sketch and the inspiration photo to create my card.


I chose just the interior portion of the sketch and those coral roses in the wood container as my main elements.  The woodgrain is from Stampin Up, and the rose is from Altenew along with the sentiment.  I colored the rose with zig markers on bristol.

Thanks so much for popping in.

Muse 278

Hi There

It's been a busy week.
I went to bed.
I didn't get a Muse card made.
I slept.
And then I woke up. WIDE AWAKE woke up. Not roll over and go back to sleep woke up.
2:51 AM
It obviously bothered me that I didn't get a Muse card made. So I set about getting one made. It's been in my head most of the week, time eluded me.

I used Hero Arts Unicorn Ink and white Hero Arts embossing powder. The stamp set is Mama Elephant Water Blooms  and I added the drawn in frame with a white uniball gel pen.

Here is Anita's Muse card:

I was inspired by the flower clusters and the colored panel with white embossing.

3:36 am time to go back to bed.  Thanks for visiting.

Hi there,

Here is my second card today.  I kept those distress inks on my desk and added worn lipstick and spiced marmalade to the squeezed lemonade for this TH Scribbles stencil card. The sentiment comes from Altenew, and the dies are from Simons and MFT.

I am submitting this to both Freshly Made Sketches and Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Challenge - Distress It.


Hi There,

It has been a busy week sorting out a new printer and laptop. Both decided that their time was up almost simultaneously. I had a bit of a learning curve - my old laptop was 11 years old.  I was running Vista as my operating system. Windows 10 took some getting used to.  I am still discovering new things.  I haven't had time to delve into my new photoshop elements (old version 8 new version 18).

I hope to get several cards made to day, my browser has 9 challenges open that expire very soon.

I love this quote and I love it with squeezed lemonade distress in sponged over it.

I am submitting this card to two challenges :
Casology - Sunbeam
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Distress It

Thanks much for stopping by.
