Hey lovelies, I hope you are well and having a nice week ?

It is time for a new challenge over at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday ChallengeThis week the challenge is

The Color Of Love

This week we are showcasing Reverse Confetti You don’t have to use them for the challenge but if you have them we would love to see what you create with them.

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store


I have used my favorite Reverse Confetti Stamp Set for this card, the super cute Coffee & You. 

I decided to go for some No Line pencil coloring for the image. 


I wanted the image to be the main focal point so I used Simons Clear Ink to stamp the coffee cup from this set along with a small heart stamp from Simon’s Ranunculus stamp set, I used my Spectrum Noir Gold Sparkle pen along with gold gel pen to add some colour the to the star on the cups & some Clear Sparkle pen to the hearts.
For the image I stamped him onto some Kraft card Using Simon’s Barely Beige ink and then coloured him using my Spectrum Noir Colourblend Pencils.
 To add some dimension I die cut a heart and adhered it to the cup and added some glossy accents. 
I loved creating this card and love the sweet image. 

So now it’s YOUR turn.

Rainbow love with Spectrum Aqua & Pretty Pink Posh

Hiya, I hope you are all having a great day ? 
I wanted to share another rainbow card I created for the Pretty Pink Posh Rainbow Challenge. I had this idea in my head after the awful events in Orlando. 
The world definitely needs more love for everyone, that was the idea behind this card, And is something I firmly believe in.
I lined up the nesting heart dies on some Strathmore Water Colour cardstock and run it through my die cutting machine. I didn’t want to do any fancy colouring on the hearts so I took my Spectrum Aqua Markers and coloured each heart in the following colours: 
Sunflower, Crimson, Budgreen & Kingfisher 
Once dry I flicked some water over them and blotted it off with some tissue and then left them to dry. 
I then used the largest heart and die cut it out of some Neenah so that I could create a inlaid die card. 
I was going to leave it plain white but i kept looking and decided on flicking some colour across it, so I scribbled the same Spectrum Aqua colours  onto my mat and mixed it with some water and then using a small brush I flicked the colours across the card. 
For the sentiment I die cut some Neenah, along with some black card and some black fun foam. 
On the Black card and the Neenah I used my Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle pen to add some sparkle and the I used my Xyron machine to apply adhesive to them.
 I laid the Neenah slightly off centre over the black so the black acts kinda like a shadow…I really like this look, but it was fiddly to get it right….I will add it wasn’t helped by the fact that Chloe the cat was demanding my attention and attempting to steal some sequins ! 
I then adhered them to the fun foam to give it some dimension, I really wanted the love die to be quite dimensional.
I then started pulling the card together, I used some Ranger Multi Medium Matt to adhere the heart pieces and I used some more fun foam to adhere the whole panel to A2 card base. 
I finished off with some Pretty Pink Posh Sequins, a few are from some of their fab mixes and are all listed and linked below.
Speaking of Pretty Pink Posh I am entering this into the current Rainbow Challenge 
I have to thank Paulina and the team, I have loved this challenge and really do have TONS more ideas.

I hope you all have a great day. Thank you so much for stopping by to my little corner of blogland.
