My Crafty Weekend



I did not stray too far from Lizzie's example when I created my card for Make it Monday #239: Customizing Patterned Paper.


I started with the red and white polka dotted pattern paper, and added Memento Grey Flannel circles to random white circles.  I purposely stamped the grey a little offset from the white.  


I took my color inspiration from this week's Color Throwdown #180.




Tracey's Muse Card
I am so glad I had time to play along with Muse #153, because my good friend Tracey provided the inspiration this week.


I was inspired by Tracey's flowers--their placement, the colors and the gold outlines.


I started with a stamp from Unity Let Your Dreams Bloom, and heat embossed it in gold.  I used colored pencils to color the flowers and added a die cut sentiment and a few gold sequins.

I am also entering this card at AAA #58: Sequins.


I finally broke open one of the coloring books I bought a while back, cut a card sized piece and started coloring.  My design is a loose interpretation of this week's sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch #160, rotated 180 degrees.


I used Prisma Color pencils, and then added my sentiments with foam tape.


I am entering this at The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge.  One of these days, I am going to actually take the challenge, and color a little bit every day for 30 days. 




Thanks for Visiting

  21. I've said I'm going to do the 30 day coloring too, Joyce, because I sometimes do. I just don't post a card there. I love your coloring book card and the sentiment is perfect for the darling rows of houses. The split paper that you added gray to is a wonderful design. Why don't I ever think to do that.

  23. Such a great idea to stamp the grey dots with an offset, Joyce - it really adds so much to your patterned paper and it looks lovely!! Really like how you've done the sentiment!!! The black sentiment on the beautiful gold embossed and coloured flowers is really striking and pops beautifully!!! Lovely CAS card!!! The little village you have on the third card is so fun with all the beautiful colours!!! A trio of loveliness, Joyce!!!
