Hi there! Crafty time has been sporadic lately but I managed to get a few cards made yesterday. My first was inspired by three challenges. I took the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches, the sponging challenge from Just Us Girls and the Inspired by Words theme from Time Out - "Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine"
Anthony J. D'Angelo.
I sponged the oval with Distress Inks and then paper pieced the sun and clouds. They're from the first Technique Tuesday set I ever got and I love it!
Cardstock: (White) Papertrey Ink, (Basic Black) Stampin' Up

Next up is a design inspired by Anita's gorgeous card over at Muse. I used Distress Inks for the background and stamped the foliage with Jet Black Archival Ink. I used my MISTI so I could stamp them multiple times to get nice, dark coverage. I'm also going to enter this in the Addicted to Stamps and More Anything Goes challenge.
Cardstock: (White, Black) Papertrey Ink
Stamps: (Leaves from Botanicals 2) Paper Smooches, (Sentiment from Casual Comfort) CAS-ual Fridays

After all that inking I went super CAS for my third card using the palette from The Colour Throwdown. I used some fabulous bright red Zing embossing powder for the flower and heart and even broke out some washi tape.
That's it for today. Hopefully I'll be back tomorrow with some more cards. Hope you all had a fabulous weekend!
