Chickie Chick

Happy Saturday!  It's time for another Just Us Girls challenge!  This week is word week and our word is SPRING!



I decided to go with an Easter floral theme:


This image is a stamp I saw at Hobby Lobby and just loved so I got it.  It's a wood mounted stamp by Stampabilities.  I paper pieced the shell and added paper flowers.  

Be sure to swing on over to the JUST US GIRLS blog and check out what the entire design team did for this challenge! I know you will be inspired and then come play along with us!

Unity Friends with Flair

Hey there!

It's Friday and time for some flair Unity style!

I decided to use my new Betsy the fairy stamp (LOVE IT) and some very simple watercolors!

Here is what I did:


I just love using the watercolors now for coloring images.  I'm finding it easier and much more fun.  I use water brushes to do this.  I have both of the Ranger water brushes and I also have others from Stampin Up and my local art supply shop.

Thanks for stopping by!!

The Mixed Media Card Challenge




It's time for a new challenge at The Mixed Media Card Challenge.

This month the Theme is Flowers with Basket being optional.


Here is what I did:



I have bunches of fabric and paper flowers floating around so I used some.  These are fabric ones.  My background paper is a "wood" style paper and I used punchanella, gel and white ink on it.


That's it for now!
