March 2012 Blog Hop

Below is the inspiration from PTI for their March Blog Hop. I Love these colors! I am blond and I can NOT wear yellow anything (wish I could), it totally washes me out, so it was fun to stamp with yellow today. I was drawn to the yellow polka dots and the aqua satin in the photo. I used my new Medallions Bkg to make the background. On the top half of the card, I stamped the same colors but just stamped off to make it lighter.
I hope you had a wonderful weekend (I DID!).


Supplies: all PTI unless noted, Hawaiian Shores Ink, CS, & Ribbon and SU Daffodil Delight Ink & CS, Medallions Bkg, Floral Frenzy Stamp Set, Scallop die, Copic Marker for rhinestone.

Make It Monday #58- Graduated Backgrounds

This Make it Monday made me fall in love with my Copics all over again. I love this technique! I used the same colors Nichole did and I copied this card from Krista

Tim Holtz Creative Chemistry 101

I am taking Tim Holtz Creative Chemistry 101 online class, mainly because I am in love with on line classes. I love that I can take them from the comfort of my couch ;-) when I have time. But, I didn't know if Tim Holtz's style was for me and my simple/clean style.....but after today I think I might be falling for it. This technique is called- Blend, Spritz & Flick. Use the foam blending tool to blend colors and then flick water over top to make a cool look.
