Inspired by Lin

Hello on this beautiful Sunday afternoon!
I was inspired by a beautiful card by Lin, which you can see here. Isn't it beautiful! I just wanted to make a little vase of flowers and had to think of a Hero Arts stamp I have, and hardly use.

I mixed up some colors with distress inks and water and after gold embossing, started painting. The vase was printed on a scrap paper (a stamped project not yet used) and after arranging the flowers I added a little branch of leafs.

And my second one in pink.

Blessings to you!

Shadow inks

Hola! (That is Spanish for 'Hello'). Hope everything is well in your part of the world.

I am sharing this card which I stamped with Hero Arts shadow inks. I usually only use distress inks so it is new for me. They are completely different in their usage. I have seen lots of card designs like this which I like. It is a matter of finding your smallest flower and leaf stamps and making a pattern on your card stock.

This little bird is from Wplus9 which I love. I colored it in with distress inks.

Distressed the background with green distress ink and stamped with green and used white embossing for the leaves. I stamped a HA leaf stamp six times to create a nest for the SU bird.

Last weekend DH and I were in Spain to celebrate our 28th Wedding Annivesary. We have found the perfect spot where we enjoy staying and the weather was good. I don't have one with the two of us, have to think of that next time.

Lastly a photo of my son who turned 23 on the 14th of May with Seréna who is 11 months old today.

Thank you for your visit.

Color Q Challenge #290

Happy Weekend!
Loved the colors, so joined in the Color Q challenge, which can be here.

This stamp from Hero Arts has long been a favorite of mine.

I don't use it enough, but had to think of it while looking at the inspiration photo which can be found below.

I recently purchased some shadow inks, also from Hero Arts. Never really worked with them before, as I always use distress inks.  But amongst them were some colors which matched up pretty well with the asked colors.

Have a great weekend!
