ZenDoodle'ish



Hello Again!! 

For today I am going to playing along with CAS(E) this Sketch. I have just recently become interested in Zendoodling. What a fun exercise fulfilling the soul. Here is my card for today, enjoy!


Look at the Zendoodle carefully. Do you see the words 'so much'?
I wanted it to blend in with the Zendoodle so the recipient wouldn't even notice the extra sentiment.
I decided to use a black border to anchor the sentiment/image.

So much color and so much going on but it all works out because of the continuity of the design.
It took me eight drafts to create a doodle I liked. 

 Challenges Entered: CAS(E) this Sketch- CTS213



Well, thank you so much for dropping in to spend time with me. I really enjoyed this project. A lot of fun to create! I will be back, so until then take care and happy stamping everyone!!

All the best,
Shawna

Waterflower

Hello All,

For today I am playing along with CAS Watercolour Challenge and The Flower Challenge. Here is my card for today, enjoy!!


Simple watercolor background with all the colors of Spring.
This cluster of flowers was heat embossed in white.
I then sponged a darker color around the flowers to allow them to pop a bit more.

I was horrified to see that after I stamped the sentiment there
was something wrong. So carefully with a very fine tip pen, I traced over the sentiment
and adding thicker lines in places. It gives this sentiment stamp a whole new look.

 Challenges Entered:
CAS Watercolour: March2017- Spring
The Flower Challenge: #6- Anything Goes



Well, thank you so much for dropping in to spend time with me. I really enjoyed this project. A lot of fun to create! I will be back, so until then take care and happy stamping everyone!!

Three R's

Hello Everyone,

For today I am be playing along with CAS(E) this Sketch. This sketch can be interrupted many different ways. Here is my interpretation, enjoy!!

Recovering from any illness or surgery can be difficult.
The clouds and raindrops represent feeling blah.
While the hearts and sentiment strip represent compassion and love.

The sentiment strip looks fantastic in bright sunny yellow.
Also, the two hearts balance out each other nicely.

I really like this dangly stamp from SU (retired).
It really gives the card a zentangle feel.

Foliage

Hello All,

For today I am playing along with CASology. I thought this card is very appropriate for the first day of Spring. Here is my card for today, enjoy!


The square panel is a small part of a much larger watercolor panel.
I also really enjoy the ripped texture it seems to provide balance to the design.


The foliage was stamped and heat embossed using silver powder. 
The two angles show how the leaves transform, so pretty.

Like I said above, the watercolor panel is a small part of a larger panel.
What attracted me to this section are the faint water splatters that leave a bit of texture and color to the design.

Wood

Hello Friends,

Today is yet another day for a new challenge at The Male Room! Here is my card for today, enjoy!


Cutting a hole in the patterned wood paper
seems to be very effective.

It reminds me of a treehouse.

Butterfly Fairy

Hello Crafty Friends,

Today is the start of a new challenge at PINspirational!! Before I get to challenge I am sharing my card for today, enjoy!



So how did I get a digi stamp on gray paper?
Well, this is an easy one, all I did was create a gray background
using Adobe Photo Elements and then printed it out. It was that easy.
The white detail was done using white pigment ink and a stencil.

I wanted to follow the color scheme from the challenge pin.
I stayed with the dark backdrop which really allows the pinks, yellows, and oranges to pop.

Some sparkle using Wink of Stella was added to the butterfly's wings.
Just a little more magic to add to this whimsical card!






Well, that should do it for me. I hope you enjoyed your stay but more importantly, I hope you join our challenge at PINspirational. Until then take care and happy stamping!

All the best,
Shawna
