I had some unexpected time to play in the Craft Cave yesterday so I got to join in with some last minute challenges. I've been admiring the gorgeous inspiration picture at The Heart Desires (I love the turquoise and oranges!) and all the fabulous DT cards. I used all the challenge elements for my card - the colour palette, a sea creature and geometric shapes. I inked over a My Favourite Things stencil with VersaMark ink and then clear embossed the little triangles before watercoloring over it. Then I just stamped and fussy cut the whale and stamped the sentiment on three different orange cardstocks and popped everything up on foam tape. I'm really please with how it turned out and so glad I managed to join in with the challenge even if it is at the last minute. :)

Next is an entry for the colour challenge at Just Add Ink. I combined a Reverse Confetti flamingo with a My Favourite Things sentiment and a Lil' Inker Design sun. This actually came together pretty quickly so I made another one in reverse pinks.

Finally is a card for the current CAS(E) This Sketch challenge. I used some oldie but goody WPlus9 images and an Altenew sentiment to create this celebration card that is perfect for the 4th of July but could work for other things too. Bastille Day anyone?
That's it from me. Have a wonderful day!
