Lazy Crazy !


I bet you have atleast one such couch potato currently lazing around at home !


This card was inspired by a couple of challenges, and provided a perfect opportunity to ink my newest stamp Chillin Frenchies (Simon Says Stamp)With cities locked down and everyone at home , i  didn't need to look far to decide which image to use 😉 from the set ! I stamped it with light grey ink( Memento London fog)  on watercolor paper (Strathamore CP 300gsm) and colored with Tube watercolors ( Camel Artist grade watercolors)


Once done with coloring I fussy cut the image and glued it on the card base. I had ink blended only lower portion previously. I framed it by scoring a border on three sides.
Does this remind you of some one ?

Adjust you sails !



Hello creative friends ! Hope you are safe and making most of the time that you have at home.I am sharing a card with same supplies as my previous card.I enjoyed creating that card so much that I had to create one more !
 How do you like that splashing waves ? I mixed Magicals and Magical shaker namely Pineapple paradise,Caribbean blue ,luscious lime and Guten tag teal (Lindy's Stamp Gang ) with white acrylic paint.Applied layers of these colors to get the texture and diluted the remaining paint mix and went to town splattering it !(its soo fun !)

Its  a shame I could not capture the amazing shimmer the magicals have ! I tried clicking the pictures at different location with different settings but in vain :( Teal looks more of a blue in the pictures.


 I stamped the image from the Your Light stamp set(Simon says Stamp) and cut out a circle,backed it with foam and adhered it on a card base.I loved all the sentiments from this set ,they are so empowering ,which makes it apt for our ""Internation Women's day Hop " ( its open till 22 March 2020 for commenting and linking your projects) .
I hope you are not bored of seeing cards with same theme and same supplies again ! 
(warning : I still have the remaining background !)

You are Strong !


I made this card as I could not resist playing with my newest colors and stamps. The stamp set has some very positive words ,perfect for our "Internation Women's day Hop " ( its still open for commenting and linking your projects) 
 Its a quick card and I enjoyed using LSG Magicals and shaker to create the background ,though not visible but the colors have very subtle shimmer.



I used just three colors yellow,blue and teal..cool ..just like a breeze on a sea shore ! I used Caribbean blue ,pine apple paradise Magicals and Guten tag teal Magical shaker (Lindy's Stamp Gang). I was itching to create a messy bg but my friends have brushed their love for CAS on me !

 
Don't you love the watercolor texture ?
Once the colors dried I stamped beautiful images from the Your Light stamp set(Simon says Stamp) with Black ink (Memento tuxedo). I split the panel in three and popped up with foam tape.I am consciously trying to create different cards other then floral.Do tell me if you like it .
