SOS506 - Color Me Beautiful

I made this card for our new challenge at Shopping Our Stash where we want participants to feature their favorite coloring media.

For my card I used an image I had in my stash forever - it was given to me by someone so I don't even know what brand it is - maybe Whiff of Joy or Sugar Nellie but not sure.
I colored it with Prismacolor pencils and added a sentiment that I also found in my stamped stash box.
Ribbon, patterned paper and rhinestones are all from Stampin Up

Gardening Gnomes

This set of cards was done with sketch from Call Me Crafty Al  Sheetload of Cards August Video - that uses 2 sheets of 12x12 papers. The sketch is pretty simple so I decided to add a gnome to each card. 

I used the gardening gnomes by Jaded Blossom and also matching sentiments from the same release. I made 4 boy and 4 girl gnomes and used scraps for die cutting.

I participate in various seed swap groups and these cards will be perfect to accompany the seeds.

I colored it with alcohol markers and layered it on a pink CS that I run through my big shot with this swirly die that reminds me of waves. Finished the card with some stamped seashells and a polka dot ribbon.

SOS503 - Hot, Hot, Hot

 Our new challenge at Shopping Our Stash is called Hot, Hot, Hot and here is my take on the challenge

My gnomie is using the HOT summer weather to grill a burger on his HOT  BBQ.
Gnome and the BBQ add-ons are from Jaded Blossom and I used Simon says Stamp stencil to ink the background. Papers are mostly from my scrap box.

I'm back with another mermaid from Beautiful Tails Collection - this one is called Flowing Crimson

I colored the image with alcohol markers and other some details with white gel pen.  The watercolor background was created with pigment powders. 
Kept the card relatively plain, only added a few sequins and a sentiment.
