LIM Sketch: Take 2--Tres Inky!

Yep.  I got inky!  I've been having lots of fun playing around with ink, and so, as I wasn't too happy with my Take 1, I decided to play with the sketch again, this time turning it and using a bit more of an artsy technique.

Here's the card~


For these fabulous challenges~

(Thanks for this one--I used a sentiment I've never used before!)

(Water coloring and spritzing is soooo much fun!)

This one was so much fun!  I stamped my silhouette floral image and then water colored my inks over the top.  I then sprayed some of my homemade glimmer mist (made with metallic paints and water) just a bit and dried the panel most of the way.  After doing this, I ran it through a dry embossing folder to add some more interest.  A few rhinestones as well for a bit of pizazz.  Layered it onto the card and then added my pennant sentiment and there you have it! :)  Can you see the bird?  I hope so--it looks so pretty in real life!

Okay, let's take a look at another fruit card, shall we?  Made with the same Fiskars stamp set called Fresh Fruit, this is another super fun and CAS card. :)

Here it is~


For these fabulous challenges~

(I hope this is cute enough...I rather think
the sentiment is darling!)

(I've been really into CAS and am trying
to perfect my technique as well as working
on paper masking technique)*ujGm0akIADa1cqiRqXfV*F9H2FzmFJ7zmAcamXDu9LMxSkgo1cNP*wFjbSmi8uXaAX14/DaisyCakes605.png

 So much fun using these bananas!!!  Instead of glossy accents, as I don't really perceive bananas as "juicy", I used some glitter!  And of course, a few rhinestones!  I've made another banana card as well, going the other way, but you'll have to wait to see it. ;) 

Thanks for stopping by--hope you can come and play along at these fun challenges!  Happy stamping! :)

Finally got here - wasn't sure which blog was yours to be honest!! I felt that as you've been visiting me once a week this month via MMM, I would come over to you and see what you get up to in your own time! Love that you're enjoying getting inky (my fingers seem to be permanently stained these days!) and your first card is very pretty.
I'm joining as a follower too just so I can find you again and visit from time to time!
