Cards in Envy - Feeling Blue and Distressed

For the challenge at Cards in Envy this week, we are to make a BLUE card using Distress inks. For my card, I used the oxide inks by Tim Holtz "Salty Ocean". I smeared the ink on a plastic lid, then spritzed with water to get this background effect. I water-colored the dog with Jane Davenport watercolor paints.

I hope you'll join us in the challenge this week.

Reveal Wheel card

This reveal wheel die is FABULOUS and oh, so easy if you watch Jennifer McGuire's video here. Sending this to a cat lover for her birthday.

The Sisterhood of Crafters - Animals
As You Like It - Favorite card base shape and why -  This is my favorite card base because it's a different kind of card and I love "different" cards. It has a wheel on it that you have to turn and it has multiple sayings in the wheel. I'm sure it will bring a smile to anyone's face to receives it.

Live Laugh Love

I love this set by Art Impressions. Found it at Hobby Lobby. I also used my new "semicircle turnabout" stamp by Concord & 9th Stamps. This stamp took me awhile to figure out how to make it come out right but once I watched the video a few times (yes, I had to watch it more than once to "get it!"), then it all came out fine. This stamp (in my opinion) works best with a Misty and I did not have the bigger Misty. I only have the smaller Misty and this stamp does not fit in the smaller Misty. I tried several times to get it to work without using the Misty at all and even though Concord & 9th claims it can be done, mine was not coming together quite right. I decided to get Tim Holtz's stamp platform at Hobby Lobby this week with my coupon and that works on it great.

I had fun with this challenge. I love these 2 colors together - teal and red.
