Do You Have A Wish?

fairy with frog and make a wish sentiment
my wish is that my mojo would stop taking a break. in between medical appointments and my out of town daughter visiting with her two very cute bunnies, i haven’t had time to create much lately.  anyway, i watercoloured this image with distress inks and aquamarkers, used plenty of stickles on the wings and created this fan flower by hand scoring the paper strip; the hardest part was actually forming the flower and getting it to stick to the base. with my hands, i don’t think i’ll be making many of these, although i love how they look. thanks for popping by. i’m submitting this to the following challenges:

sir stampalot – whatever you fancy

Hello Sunshine

the second paperlane challenge, using molly blooms stamps, has a theme of shades of sunshine, so i went with yellow, orange, pink and red. i masked molly to stamp her on the toadstool, watercoloured her with distress inks and aquamarkers and added glossy accents to her shoes. the sentiment is a punch out from the echo park summer days collection kit. thanks for popping by.

a fruitful thanks

watermelons stamped several times in a square and watercoloured, plus ribbon and a melon thanks sentiment
i needed a thank you card so i opened a cute fruit set from my friend sue for my birthday. this is also the first time i used the letraset aquamarkers i won from the penny black at allsorts challenge in march; very fun to play with – i’ll keep practicing. the ribbon reel  challenge is summer fruit and and use two ribbons/lace or twine, at least one brad and to include a summer fruit element. i used two brads; first i coloured a green brad red and inserted it into the white flower brad.  i’m also submitting this to the free and easy challenge at allsorts and the summer theme at the secret crafter.  thanks for popping by.
