Heart 2 Heart ~ Walk on the Wild Side

Welcome to another weekly challenge with Heart 2 Heart!

This week the theme is Walk on the Wild Side. This challenge is open to interpretation. I thought about wild animals and I also decided to try playing with some product I had in a way I never have. I have owned some Distressed Oxide Inks for a while but it was not until recently I watched a video on what I can actually do with them. So I took a walk on the wild side.

I used my Faded Jeans, Wilted Violet and Storm Sky to layer on the colors. It was really fun seeing how you could really add the different colors on top of the prior layer. I used Mint twine and cardstock. I used the Scalloped Circle Thin Cut and the A Koala-ty Day Stamp and Thin Cut. I colored the Koala with my markers.

Now it is your time to create something and link it to the HEART 2 HEART Challenge. You have until August 31st to participate in this challenge. Make sure you include at least one Close to My Heart product. We love to see your inspirations!!

Happy Crafting!

Heart 2 Heart ~ Green Thumb

Welcome to another weekly challenge with Heart 2 Heart!

This week we have a fun challenge ~ Green Thumb. This is open to interpretation it could be plants, flowers, or even just using the color green. Have fun with it and just remember to use at least one Close to My Heart product.

I have been seeing this technique called the Borgello Technique and have been wanting to give it a try. I started with white cardstock and then sponged Sweet Leaf, Green Apple, Fern and New England Ivy inks to create the background. I then cut the paper into 1/2 inch strips then attached them to a second white cardsock. I then ran the two layers through my die cutting machine using the Stitched Rectangle Thin Cuts. I used the Stitched Square Thin Cuts with New England Ivy to make the frame around the koala. I used the A Koala-ty Day Stamp and thin cut. I colored the koala with markers. I did use Black Pigment Ink with Clear Embossing Powder.

Now it is your time to create something and link it to the HEART 2 HEART Challenge. You have until August 31st to participate in this challenge. Make sure you include at least one Close to My Heart product. We love to see your inspirations!!

Welcome to another week of Color Dare!  This week we have a good one for you.  This weeks challenge is all about the BROWNS! You can use any shade of brown with BLACK, WHITES, and GOLD but that is all!!

When I decided to create my project I knew I wanted to use the adorable Koala-ty Stamp set.

I used the Timber paper pack for the woodgrain base. I then cut the stitched rectangle in New England Ivy. I used my markers to color the the Koala image. I did use Espresso Pigment Ink with Clear Embossing powder for the sentiment. I used Toffee cardstock fo the sentiment.
