Dauber-licious Background

Hello! Today I'm sharing how I created a quick and colorful background
using Hero Arts daubers.

 
Initially I was planning to use the daubers as watercolors, but went direct to paper instead.
I literally swiped three colors--Cornflower, Tide Pool, and Green Hills--on watercolor paper, 
then let it dry. How fun and easy is this?


I added the pup, a few die cut doggie bones, the sentiment and stars. Done!


It's fast, fun, and forgiving and you could experiment with different color combos, too.

So the next time you're pressed for time, consider the dauber for your background.
And check out the new colors in the Hero Arts 2015 Summer Catalog!

Thanks for stopping by!

CAS(E) this Sketch 119


Here's CAS(E) this Sketch 119 courtesy of our teammate N@Ali.


And here's my take on it.


I couldn't resist using My Favorite Things new Super Boy and colored him with Copics.
The sentiment comes with the set, and I added his eye mask and a few stars
for some superhero fun.

Visit CAS(E) this Sketch to see how my teammates interpreted the sketch
and join us if you can. Link up your card(s) by Thursday, April 23rd.
Hope to see you in the gallery!

April Showers

I'm joining the Wednesday Challenge at Simon Says Stamp where this week's theme is
April Showers and/or Spring Flowers. Since they're showcasing Memory Box products,
I pulled out the Memory Box umbrella die for my card.


I masked off a portion of the card with Post It Tape and ink distressed with 
two colors of Distress inks and spattered it with water. Three umbrellas were die cut
from watercolor cardstock and ink distressed, then adhered to the panel.

 
I added some "raindrops" with Glossy Accents and finished off the card
with my favorite Paper Smooches sentiment.

Thanks so much for visiting today!

Tag You're It Challenge 19


Tag You're It Challenge 19 is this gorgeous tag from our teammie Jeanne.


Here's my take on her tag. I was inspired by the color combo that she used
and her reference to "feathers".


The tag was ink distressed and over stamped with a triangle background 
and the Dina Wakley bird was colored, fussy cut, and adhered with dimensional tape.
I added the sentiment and finished off the tag with some spatters and enamel dots.

Visit Tag You're It to see how the rest of Team A interpreted the tag
and join us if you can. Link up your creation(s) by Wednesday, April 22nd
and remember that the winner will be a guest designer in a future challenge.
 
Thanks, always, for stopping by!
