Hero Arts Makeover Challenge

Hero Arts is making over their website and they are having a makeover challenge.  Take a card that you have made and give it a makeover.  I have not done this grid technique in forever and I had the idea to kind of make a travel card with browns and greens.  The first card I had made the colors were just too muted so I redid on cardstock with black ink and then added color with copics and it just made the images pop.  All stamps are Hero Arts.  You can find their challenge here.  Hero arts challenge

Hero Arts Makeover challenge

Hero Arts website is going through a makeover so their challenge is take a card and give it a makeover.  I took a card that I had stamped with dye ink and matched with bright paper and then made it over with doing a watercolor version.  I just started doing watercolor with stamping and I was really amazed at how subtle the colors were.  It made the card have a total different look.  I did go with less bling on the 2nd card as I thought maybe I had added a bit too much.  I love both cards they are just so different but just so alike.  Stamp by Hero Arts and challenge can be found here.  Hero Arts challenge

Impression Obsession Say it Big 2

Well I got carried away and am showing how this image can be used.  I stamped this with dye ink on glossy cardstock which makes the image so detailed.  I tried for this card to be kind of plain and simple as I always tend to overdue the bling.  The image is Santa Bridg Santa Bridgee G1780  The challenge can be found here Impression obsession challenge  Thanks for looking.

The Greeting Farm Summer Challenge

I haven't played with these stamps in awhile and I dug through my unmounted stash and found several Greeting Farm stamps so they will now get some use.  The theme was summer so I thought the beach so here is a little ocean theme card.  The stamp is obviously from The Greeting Farm and the die cuts are Tim Holtz.  I made the background paper with acrylics.  I may have overdone it with the buttons.  The card seemed plain so I tried to jazz it up a bit.  Thanks for looking.  Their challenge can be found here.Greeting farm challenge

Kraftin' Kimmie Fall challenge plus sketch

I pulled out my Kraftin' Kimmie stamps today and met their fall challenge.  Anyone that knows this stamp knows that it has strawberries on it so I had to cover these up with punched fall leaves as strawberries aren't too fall like.  I followed their sketch also.  The background papers are some of the recollection papers from Michaels that I bought probably 5 years ago.  I had fun coloring with my copics.  Thanks for the challenge.  Kraftin' Kimmie challenge  I am also entering the Stamp and Create challenge which is one for the girls which can be found here.  Stamp and Create Challenge

Art Impressions Southern Style

This was a difficult theme for me but I think I pulled it off as when I showed my husband my new card he said "it sure is Southern" and I told him that was the theme so he said "well you did it"  The mailbox stamp is an Art Impressions mini water color set that I picked up at a scrapbook convention a couple of weeks ago.  I made the background paper with acrylic paint.  Thanks for looking.  You can find their challenge here.  Art Impressions challenge
