Things with wings

This will be the first time I have written a post with my Android Tablet, so bear with me if I have trouble working it all out.
This very CAS design was done by masking a shape, and using distress inks to apply the colours. The images are from my Stamping Up Wetlands set, which I really love.
I would like to enter this at the Things with wings challenge at Paperbabe

Paris!

Hello everyone
Today's card features a very pretty printed image from a sheet that I bought at SENZ. I have matched the colours with a piece of dp for my background, layered on a toning card base after sponging and distressing the edges, and used a snippet of a slightly deeper colour across the centre. I added some pretty lace and an eiffel tower (Marianne brand) cut from a black glitter card.

Hello!

How are you!

Today's card follows the technique that is in the spotlight at the Stamplorations blog.
Flowers were stamped with Versamark, and embossed with detail white EP, on watercolour paper.
I then sprinkled a few colours of Brusho's, sprayed with water, and spread the colours with a paint brush. I diecut 'hello' on a creamy/white card, and also on black, so that I couls pop the black into the space. Trimmed and mounted onto a black card base. I have turned the design into landscape instead of portrait - I hope that is OK

Happy Birthday

The background for this card was an experiment by my granddaughter. She was using diecuts as stencils and spraying with Dylusions.
I decided to finish it by stamping a flower from a Stamplorations set that I had won, and happy from another set. I used the diecut that she had oversprayed with orange and just slightly offset it. Turned out to be a nice bright and cheerful card.

Pink and Pretty

Hi everyone.
I have had fun making this card. I chose some paper from my 'One Moment in Time' pad, and sponged and distressed the edges. I used a stencil from Pronty and sponged with DI spun sugar. I then die cut my corner from a scrap of pink card and sponged it with the spun sugar as well. Finished of with a scrap of string twirled and a pretty rose from my stash. I can assure you it looks much more pink IRL

B&W+1

Hi everyone.
I have been a bit slack with my cardmaking this week, But I did manage to get this one done..
The floral image is from Crafty Individuals, and the words are from Rubberdance Affirmations set.
I have used a kraft card as my base and stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black. My white colouring is a combination of a white coloured pencel, and a Sharpie waterbased paint pen.

Butterflies

I almost forgot to post this card. It fits in very nicely at CASplorations, where the optional colour is orange.

I have used my new (to me) SU butterfly which is very big, I stamped it on an angle while the card was opened out, and computer printed the message on the inside. I then trimmed along the edge of the butterfly, so that it shows the message.
