Gina K Design inspiration

This card was inspired by Gina K from, this was a new technique for me.  Taking an acrylic block, inking it with Tim Holtz mustard seed colored distress ink and then "stamping" on a piece of white card stock.  It gives a blotched effect.  Once it dried, I stamped the flower in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and layered on black cardstock.  On one side I used a edge punch and black with white dot ribbon on the other side of the panel.  Then adhered to the top of the rust colored card base.  I love how it turned out.  I never thought of using a block to stamp on cardstock.  Gina K is so talented!  I love her cards and the various techniques she makes everything look so easy!

I colored the flowers with a dark yellow marker from Spectrum Noir and a rust colored marker for the centers.  I really enjoyed seeing this come together!  Thanks for your time, hope you have a full blessed day!!

Autumn Leaves

The second card I made for challenges was made with scraps using my new ticket punch and Darice embossing folder I just got from Hobby Lobby on Saturday.  I loved the leaf paper and the leaf embossing folder.  I used Wink of Stelia brown pen over the stamped words....the sparkle is so pretty.

Hope you like how it turned out!  God bless

Fun with Spectrum Noir markers

It has been a long time!!  A lot of things going on with me the last few months, will save that story for another day!  I have been looking at a number of blogs lately and wanted to get back to challenges.  So many beautiful cards on the blogs I just wanted to use some of that inspiration to get started again.
This card was inspired by one of the blogs to measure 3 - 1 inch blocks into a square and using the Spectum Noir markers by coloring the blocks then using the blending pen solution to give it a blotched look, stamped the leaf with Memento Black ink after it had dried.  Love the affect!  Matted it with the butterscotch color, then black and used an embossing folder for the layer on top of the black card base.

A fun card to make, hope you enjoy!  God Bless!
