For the brave are free and the lovers soar...come ride with me to the distant shore...

Hey, y'all! Happy Tuesday! Well, ok, now I think it's Wednesday...I need to get to bed! I have a couple of cards to share today, and not much chatting. Hope that's ok!

The first card I made using Amy's Friday Sketch...love her sketches!

I stamped Bikababeabella in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored her with Copics. She was a blast to color! On my Kraft card base, I added some Basic Grey Urban Prairie paper and a strip of Pink Pirouette cardstock punched with a Martha Stewart border punch. Added some ribbon, small Olive bon-bons, and Diamond Stickles to finish it off...yum!

And here's a card with the Mojo Monday sketch for this week.

For this one, I used Daisy with a Stella on Top, stamped in Black Stazon and watercolored with reinkers and a waterbrush. The Apricot square panel was embossed with the D'Vine Swirls embossing folder, then sponged with Tangerine Tango ink. Love those colors together! Then I added some black ribbon and the Fantabulous Day sentiment, and mounted it all on a base layer of Bo Bunny Ocean Double Dot paper. And of course, my card wouldn't be complete without bling...some large Crystal bon-bons, Diamond Stickles, and some Diamond Glaze on Stella's lips. Looks complicated, but it came together pretty quickly. Love the sketch!

Well, I better head to bed...it's late and I have to be up early. Have a wonderful day!

very nice cards! Your watercolouring is amazing. How do you get it so vibrant and strong. I am intrigued now. I have always had a pastel view of watercolour, but you have changed that.
Hope to hear from you!
