What fun colors! Of course the pinks brought flamingos to mind. It was mixing in the peach that caused the trouble for me. I met with a group of ladies on Wednesday, and the theme for the afternoon was dots, lots of them. When I saw the difference the dots made in the designs, I knew I had my answer. I love the way the the peach warms up the white circle and really makes the flamingo stand out.

I think this background is still my all time favorite. I stamped it  in Versamark and heat embossed it with white detail embossing powder. I inked it up with oxide distress inks in various colors. I chose a combination that I liked and cut it with a stitched rectangle. I cut out the "you"  3 times and added it to my background. I coated it with Metallic Gilding Polish which gives a shimmery pearl look with a hint of gold. I love the look.

I love this color combination. The butterfly was stamped with Versamark on watercolor paper and heat embossed with white embossing powder. It was colored with blue and yellow making green in places and then highlighted with Abandoned Coral. The word hello was colored with first yellow and then abandoned giving it an ombre look. I used black cardstock to make the colors pop.

I made this card for my husband for Father's Day using the new Hero Arts kit. I fell in love with the layered water and it did not disappoint. The sailboat and birds are also from the kit. I'm really happy with the way this turned out and he loved it.

MFT birthday project June

For a summertime birthday, nothing says celebrate like ice cream. Our little people love ice cream cones with sprinkles on them. My take on this delight.

Birthday card for a man. Supplies are all from MFT. I love this new background stamp. Not only are the dots circular but they fade! I love the combination of the aqua and black. Manly but fun.

I made this card for my husband of 56 years. The sentiment is from Technique Junkies and I have been saving it for just this occasion.
