For this challenge I went back to my “granddaughter and me water colored papers” and found one to die cut the feathers.
The base card is black card stock.
The main piece is cream card stock with brown flecks.
The word was die cut from black card stock using MFT Die-namics 
Using Spellbinders “Feathers on the Wind” set and the paper I made with my granddaughter, I cut out three feathers.
I attached black Scrapper’s Floss, not even sure they make it any more, to each feather and attached them to the card front.

not a favorite sketch...


Since my favorite sketch is usually the next one I try I thought I would use this as my favorite sketch!
The card is white card stock with a layer of small flowers from MFT Stamps “Funky Flowers” set stamped with StazOn jet black ink.
On another piece of white card stock I die cut the larger flower from the set using the co-ordinating die.
I left it in the card stock and using my Misti I stamped it with the same ink.
Once everything was stamped I colored them with Distress markers and applied the largest flower with glue dots to the card front.

chain link thanks...

A while back I sat for an entire Saturday and played with Tim Holtz products I had!
For this challenge I started with a white linen base card and added a background I made during that Saturday.
Problem is I don’t remember what I used except that they were Tim Holtz products and it was water color paper.
After applying that I die cut the MFT Die-namics “Thank You Circle Frame” from white linen card stock, a circle from the LifeStyle Crafts “nesting circles” set using teal card stock and flowers from the MFT Die-namics “Stitched Flowers” set. 
I attached all these to the card front and die cut a white linen circle to top off the flowers.
To finish I put the three dots, as per the sketch, in the corner using Nuvo simply white crystal drops.

little rainy duckie...

My inspiration for this challenge was the duck and girl so I pulled out myMFT Stamps “Showering You With Love” set.
Then I found the YouTube video from Sandy Allnock on how to make rain!

And though I am no Sandy Allnock I do try different ways to color.
For this card I used white card stock for the base card and main piece.
A layer of black card stock in between.
The stamping was done with MFT Extreme Black Hybrid ink.
The “sidewalk” was sponged in with Distress pumice stone ink.
All the coloring including the sky was done with Chameleon pens 
(I don’t have any Copics).
I used Distress white marker and a white gel pen for the raindrops.

watercolor play...

While painting with my granddaughter, using Mickey Mouse water colors and water color paper from Ollie’s, I came up with this flower.
Not all birthdays are celebrations, but do need to be acknowledged.
This is a softer card using grey card stock for the base card as well as the “blessings” that I die cut using Our Daily Bread Designs “Many Blessings” set.
The “birthday” is from. The same set and I stamped that with Adirondack slate ink.
