I love todays sketch! Because I wanted to do a triple challenge I knew I was going to use soft sky, vanilla, and river rock. I also had to find an image that I could watercolor. I thought the colors would make a great elegant card so of course I had to go with flowers. Both way blossoms is still one of my fave flower images to watercolor. I used SU watercolor paper and reinkers to color the flowers. I chose the pattern I love from the prints pack for elegant cards in both soft sky and river rock. I added a vanilla bow to my image and 3 pearl brads. Not a whole lot going on because I think elegant cards should be more simplified. Be back later today with more dirty challenge creations!

Todays featured stamper is Susiestampalot she has an amazing gallery! I chose her yo quiero taco bell card to case. Ive had this Inkadinkado stamp for a couple of months and have been waiting to use it and as soon as I saw her card I had to use it! Hes so cute and fun to color. I kept her layout but I did change the sentiment and ribbon placement. I didnt have the dp she had but the pattern of the dp reminded me of seeing spots background so I stamped it on the green galore tone on tone. I colored the dog and cactus with copic and prismacolor markers.
Stamps: Muchas Gracias, seeing spots
Ink: Pallette noir
Paper: real red textured, yellow Bazzill textured, green galore, basic black, pti white
Other: striped red grosgrain, paper piercer, fiskars circle, sq punches, copic markers, prismacolor markers

I love how this turned out! Its my first time using this set and I will be using it again very soon! I added a little texture the dino by misting him and colored his spots and toes with yo yo yellow. I outlined him with my copic marker. For my corners I used my red marker and made my dots. Its hard to see in the pic but the real red layer has the footprints stamped tone on tone. Hope you like it as much as I do!
If you want to play along add the keywords HMsc4 for the sketch challenge or HMcc1 for the color challenge. Have a great day!

Okay so I know this girl is technically too young to do or probably even know what the watermelon crawl is!LOL! I cant help it everytime I see this image that song pops into my head! Thanks alot Heather!LOL! For those of you who are scratching your heads saying what is she babbling about?!?!? Watermelon crawl is a country song by Tracy Byrd. So some of the lyrics are "if you ever round in Ga round about July and you aint in hurry then outta stop by I can guarantee that youre gonna have a ball learning how to do the watermelon crawl." Well guess what its July and Im here in GA!LOL! Okay enough of that on to the card....
I used Heathers sketch for this week hmsc2. Heather post a sketch on her blog every Saturday so join in! I thought this sketch would be cute with this adorable image. She is so cute with all that watermelon juice on her face. She looks like Madison!LOL! I watercolored the image something I havent done in forever! Im not the most patient person so watercoloring is not my favorite coloring technique. I also used the sentiment from this set Celebrate the day .
I will be back with a quick post in the morning before we head off for the weekend! Have a great day!
Stamps: Celebrate the day H & M stamps
Ink: Black Stazon

I had a hard time with todays color challenge. I finally had to put my card down and go jump in the pool for a little while then come back to it!LOL!
With 2 greens in the color challenge of course the first thing that popped into my head was flowers but I wasnt in a flower mood today. I pulled out Frolicking frogs instead and played with it. I colored the main image with prismacolor pencils and blended with gamsol. I used copic bg10 cool shadow for the water. I used the spotlight technique on the frogs stamped along the celery panel. I also stamped the frogs on the inside of the card which is something I always forget to do!
Short post today! I havent been feeling all that great! Hopefully I'll be more chatty tommorrow. Have a great day!
