PE: Noticed at Neat & Tangled!! Yay! Yay! Yay!!

Noticed by Neat & Tangled

Hello!

Made a few cards to submit to various challenges.

My first card is using Ellen Hutson stamps and dies –

Miss You

I started with the background – I repeat stamped the flower from Ellen Hutson Bohemian Garden and heat embossed it gold. I then colored a few random flowers using Weathered Wood distress ink. I then die cut the flower and leaves from Ellen Hutson Wild Garden and colored them using Broken China + Weathered Wood and Pine Needles distress inks. The sentiment is from Altenew Painted Greetings. Submitting this to Essentials by Ellen March Pin Sights Challenge and CAS(E) This Sketch #165

My second one using Neat & Tangled stamps –

One of a Kind

I started by randomly stamping all the images with outlines on watercolor paper and heat embossed them clear. I then watercolored them using distress inks – Seedless Preserves, Peacock Feathers, Mustard Seed, Salty Ocean, Festive Berries. For the sentiment, I die cut another watercolor panel using Sizzix Phrases, and stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set and watercolored it using Peacock Feathers and Mustard Seed.

One of a Kind

After adhering the base watercolored piece on the card base at an angle, I added the sentiment panel too, along with some buttons for embellishment. Submitting this to Little Tangles Challenge #66: Ombre

My third using lots of pattern papers and Reverse Confetti stamps and dies –

Wild About You

I really wanted to start using some pattern papers from my stash. I recently purchased some more – and I couldn’t wait to use these beauties in my cards. Agreed, I am not the best in using them yet, but hoarding them will get me nowhere!! Ok, I really didn’t keep track of which paper pads they are from (:(), but I am just glad I used them! πŸ˜‰ By the way, the lion and the sentiments are from Reverse Confetti Leaping Lions. I stamped them using Memento Tuxedo Black and colored the lion using Faber Castell Polychromos color pencils. The stars are wood veneers from Studio Calico.
