SSS Work It Wednesday

Have you seen the Simon Says Stamp Work It Wednesday challenge this month? They want to see what we are stamping right now -- new stamps or old stamps, it doesn't matter. The other day I stamped this girl image from the SSS New Beginning set and colored it with Copic markers. I finally got around to making a card with it this week.  

I sent this card to my mother-in-law because she loves to do yoga. Hope you get a chance to play along in the challenge.

Mixed Media Birds of a Feather Challenge

I've been interested in trying a mixed media project for quite awhile now. When I saw the Mixed Media Monthly challenge - Birds of a Feather, I thought I'd play along. I'm obsessed with owls lately, and I always love stamps of birds, so I knew this was the challenge for me.  :)  I used a lot of Tim Holtz distress inks, paints and the tissue wrap on this canvas. Love these products. 

Hope you have a great week! It's supposed to be in the 70s here today, amazing weather for March!

Mix it Up Challenge

Hello!  Long time, no post. haha!

So I haven't played along with many challenges lately (too busy!) but when I read about the Mix it Up challenge on the Ellen Hutson - the Classroom blog, I knew I wanted to play along. Who doesn't love Hero Arts and the new Essentials by Ellen stamps? A combination of both on one card? Yes, please. 

I wanted to make a clean and simple card and this is what I ended up creating.

What do you think? Is it clean and simple, or not so much? :)  I used the Baby Animals stamp and cut set from Hero Arts and the Merry and Bright set from Essentials by Ellen. I love Julie Ebersole's stamp designs. 

If you haven't played along yet, now is your chance! Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
