City Crafter #255

Hello!

Today it's my turn to host this weeks' challenge 
at the City Crafter.
This week I choose the theme  "Polka Dots"
Create a card or project using a polka dotted stamp, embossing folder, patterned paper or polka dotted embellishments




Our Special Guest Star for March is Darnell! Since this is her last week as our Special Guest designer I want to thank her for her wonderful contributions!
Darnell it has been wonderful to have you with us!
You can find more of her lovely projects on her blog.


I came up with polka dotted paper,
 floral paper and yes..... that bird again:)
A bright color scheme; perfect for a happy spring card:





For a bit of dimension I added sequins 
and rhinestones to the center of the flowers.
Here is my card:





On our blog you can find more inspiration from 
our Guest Designer and the other team members.

Watercoloring

Hello!

I hope you are all well.
A windy and wet Sunday here in Groningen....
Time to post a card that I made with a technique
 I tried for the very first time; watercoloring.
I am not great when it comes to drawing or painting so I kept it simple.
I guess that's just my style:) 
I used a ruler to create a border in various shades of ink:




And added a few flowers:





Thanks for stopping by!

Lift Challenge #83

Hello!

I hope you are all well.
Geesh it's already Sunday; '
time really does fly when youre busy!
Two weeks filled with work, family, friends,
 baking and cooking.
And finally I had some time to make a card:)
I am here today to share a card 
that I made for the current Lift Challenge.
We're supposed to lift this card:




I picked the biggest flower from the PTI "In Bloom" set 
and heat embossed it with white embossing powder:





 And colored it with  my SU Blushing Bride marker;
I only have 4 colors so my choice was limited:)
I added a few lines with a white marker and a die cut sentiment. 
Here is my card:




Thanks for stopping by!

My take on the photo inspiration is based on the colors;
 a combo in pink and neutrals:
