Carnation Pixie

Hello there!  It's my day to host over on the A Day for Daisies blog today.  I've made a card using the super cute Carnation Pixie. 

I created the background by mixing texture paste and Glimmer Mist spray in Viva Pink.  And then I used a stencil to create this funky background.  And I finished it off with some Sheer Shimmer Spritz for added sparkle power.  I love how the design pops off the black.

Time to Blossom

Hello there!  I've created a card using a great new stamp set from Kennedy Grace Creations.  I colored the flowers with Tim Holtz Distress markers and used a Ranger water brush to create a watercolor effect.  Then I cut it into three pieces and put it back together again leaving a small space between the pieces.

Hello Crafty Friends!  Welcome to our August new product release and blog hop! 
Our Newest release is now available in the Kennedy Grace Creations Online Store.
Two new stamp sets.
And we now have dies.  Yay!
Three new fabulous sequin mixes:

I have created a Sepia mixed media card.

Strathmore watercolor paper
Kennedy Grace Creations - Time to Blossom stamp set
Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Vintage Photo
Ranger Heat Tool
white colored pencil
Glitz Design - distressing stamp set

I started off by watercoloring the background with the Distress Ink.  Then I used the heat tool to dry it.  I then flicked some more ink to make splatters.  Heat again.  Next I stamped the Blossom and the distress stamps.  And for the final touches I highlighted certain areas with a white colored pencil.
To celebrate or August Release we will be giving away to 1- lucky winner a $15.00 gift certificate to our online store.
