KaiserCraft Monthy Challenge

Each week KaiserCraft reveals a new sketch that will help you create a beautiful layout and the best part is you enter it in their monthly sketch challenge.  You could win some of Kaiser's yummy goodies and get some great layouts created at the same time.

Here is my take on one of this month's sketches. 

All of my flowers are handmade ...something I love to do.  They are so easy but add so much. 

I'm not sure what my addiction is to banners and tickets, but I adore them.  So I was thrilled to see the banner that is included in the Fine and Sunny stamp set from Kaisercraft.

I hope you'll go check out Kaiser's sketches that are revealed every Saturday.  Click Here to go to  Kaiser's  Blog

Water Color Effect with Distress Inks

Good Monday Morning.  I had a wonderful long weekend of rest and fun, and hope the same for you.  Today we kick off the week with Prickley Pear's Mondays Post. 

This weeks projects really comes together thanks to distress ink and markers.  For the stamped center piece it was in with distress ink over the entire card stock.  I then spritz water on the stamp and stamped and blotted.  The I re stamped in the same spot with brown distress ink. I then flicked water over the entire card and blotted again.  The final was to color in the images lightly with distress markers.  It gave a great watercolor effect to the card.   Love it!!!
