Craft Stamper March Challenge

Hello my friends.
Welcome to another Craft Stamper Challenge.
Here is my project for today's inspiration post. 

I used a stamp called Dream Girl from Unity Stamp Company. I have a ton of stamps that I have not got around to using. This one has been in my stash for over a year. I finally got around to using it for this card.  I love the sentiment that runs down the side of her face. 

Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember you have within you the strength, the patience and the passion to reach for the stars, to change the world.
Harriet Tubman

I used my Zig water colour markers on the girl. Then for the background I used my butterfly stencil and distress oxides. I wanted to have this hazy background that represented dreams. You know that way when you are dreaming but you don't always remember them they can be a bit vague. I wanted to capture that on the card. I stencilled some butterflies with black distress oxide ink then took a water brush and wet them to make them a little  hazy but still keeping butterfly form.  I then added some seedless preserves oxide ink to add some colour into the background. I used a lot of water and let it air dry and it left lots of lovely water marks which added some more interest.  I love the way it turned out.

I hope you have time to come and join in challenge. We have this lovely prize up for grabs this month. A stunning  Tim Holtz stamp set.

All of the details can be found on the Craft Stamper Blog.

Friends with Flair @ Unity

Here is my Unity Friends with Flair entry.  I used my Feel the Joy stamp and used the generation stamping technique with memento ink. I then sponged the background in purple and deep pink pigment ink.  I mounted it on to white card and added the Happy Birthday sentiment at the bottom. It looked too plain so I added teeny weeny little butterflies from the butterfly punch from Martha Stewart.  P.S I ran out of daubers and all I could find was a magic eraser it did the trick as a makeshift sponge :)                                        If you want to take part hop along to Unity and enter  here I just had to make another card I just love this stamp I wish I had gotten it sooner it is so versatile. I think it may be my new favourite Unity Stamp :)                                                                           Thanks for visiting :)

Love You - Hot Pink

Happy Friday Friends :) I hope you all had a good week. Here is the card I made for this weeks friends with flair today.  I used two stamps on this card. The hearts are from the  You are my Main Squeeze stamp set. The sentiment is from the Strength & Dignity KOM 11/13 .  The vibrant pink colour is Picked Raspberry distress ink that I sponged all over the card. I embossed the hearts with white embossing powder. I really like he effect it created it looks almost like chalk.  Have a great weekend :)

Craft Stamper May Challenge

Hello Friends! I hope everyone is doing ok during this crazy time.  I just wanted to remind you that we are still running the Craft Stamper Challenges.  The May challenge is well underway but you still have time to come and join in.  Here is my card I made for this month's project.  I made this clean and simple floral card with Unity stamps.  I used two different kits to create this card. The jar with the flowers is from the  Strength & Wisdom  stamp set and the sentiment is from the kit called  His Words .  I kept my card really clean and just used my watercolors to colour the flowers and jar then tied a little twine around it to finish it off. If you have the time come and play along with us this month.  You can use any stamps you wish on your project.  Here is the prize we have on offer this month this fab Eileen Hull die.  All of the details of the challenge can be found on the  Craft Stamper Blog . Hope to see your project
