Amazing Grace

Happy Friday! 
I am on the Sweet 'n Sassy blog today sharing this card I made using a couple sets from the Creative Worship line, His Wings and Amazing God. If you are not a bible Journaler these sets make beautiful cards as well.

To make my card I started with an A2 sized white card bases, a panel of watercolor paper, white embossing powder and some Dr. Martins Hydrus watercolor. I stamped two of the feathers in Versamark ink and embossed them with white embossing powder, next I used some hydras watercolors to make my background. For the third feather I stamped it in Dapper Denim ink and then with White craft in on top of that to give it texture. To finish the card I added a strip of glitter tape along the side and stamped the sentiment with Versafine black onyx ink and used a white gel pen to fill it in.

CAS(E) This Sketch #178

Quick late night card share for the sketch challenge at CAS(E) this sketch. I have been meaning to play along all week with the this weeks sketch and finally got a few minutes to do so.

It's a simple sketch so I knew it would not take me long to make a card. To make my card I used a A2 sized card base and the Pop of Paradise set from Stampin Up. I stamped the image with Versamark ink and embossed it with white embossing powder, then sponged a little Flirty Flamingo and Peek-A-Boo Peach around it

Golden Butterflies

I'm on the So Suzy Stamps blog featuring this beautiful stamp, Blowing Butterfly Tree. 
To make my card I started with an A2 Sized card base, a white panel cut slightly smaller using a scolloped die for the mat and then the stitched panel in which I stamped the image using Versamark ink and embossed with gold embossing powder. For the background I used the Abstract Squares stencil and those amazing Clarity Brushes along with some Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana and Pool Party inks. 

Here is a close up of the gold embossing, I love to emboss in gold, it's so pretty!
