Monday Challenge - Simon Says Stamps "Little Critters:

This week's Monday Challenge at Simon Says Stamps is "Little Critters"   There are some critters smaller than a hummingbird, but not many!!  The challenge does not limit us to cards.  This week I have created a Shadow Box.  A Hummingbird paperscape has been mounted on a canvas.  To prepare the canvas, I treated acrylic paints like watercolors.  Keeping the canvas wet, I applied salt and then dried the canvas.  Here is the photo of the finished project. I did experience some difficulty take a photo of the entire product.  Reflections were not friend today. Supplies are list below.

"A Hint of Pink" Entry #2

It really did start to bother me that I put Tinkerbelle in pink. What was I thinking?  We can post up to 5 entries per week, which I really don't expect to do.  But I feel the need to rectify my pink Tink. Now this is "A Hint of Pink".

List of Supplies:

Heartfelt Creations Flowering Dogwood Paper Collection
Heartfelt Creations Flowering Dogwood Die
Heartfelt Creations Flowering Dogwood Cling Stamp Set

I also used a stamp pad only I truly forget which color.  The flowers on my card are some of my practice flowers following Heartfelt's video, How to Create Flowering Dogwoods and Stamens.

I love the videos from Heartfelt Creations! They are truly very informative.

"A Hint of Pink" SimonSays Wednesday Challenge

This week's challenge is "A Hint of Pink".  I have no idea why I chose Tinkerbelle since she is primarily green!  But I did.  The card measures 4-1/4" inches high and 5-1/2" wide.  It is a center step card.

Supplies List:

Sparkle and Sprinkle Embossing Powder, Raspberry Tart
Darice Heat Tool

Color Box Pigment Ink Frost White
Tinkerbelle Stamp

It's a fairly basic card.  If I have time, I think I will try to get another entered into the challenge.
