Kick Start

New online class started today, Kick Start!  You can tell by the title it is definitely something I need... My main sources of inspiration are Pinterest and other blogs. I haven't been brave enough yet to enter a challenge because I do use other folk's designs. Maybe this will get me rolling!

So here's my first submission for the class using ideas from the other classes that I have taken. Interestingly... I added it with flickr! Next time I might try adding from this blog...

I used the stamp from last class, but did Versamark to emboss it in white. Then watercolored with Yoyo yellow and Garden green, like the effect. I decided to try the technique with three frames, wish I didn't round the corners on the card though! This is my first attempt at faux stitching in black. The butterfly is watercolored after white embossing using the lattice background stamp. Used dimensionals to attach it to vellum.

I can see that my photos need to be better to get the detail of cards. Will work on that....

Also wanted to document a few other cards for my own reminder. 
Sympathy card for a friend. Love the masking and layering technique with this set. Will definitely use again!

Matching envelope

Used for Nancy's birthday. Love Distress shading and the masking so it is all one layer. 

Colored with Copic markers. The sentiment smudged so I will use it for my Emma penpal letter but will mask and color with these gorgeous flower stamps again!
