The Heart Desires Challenge #13 Mid Month Inspiration

Hey there! Hope you are having a great week. It's time for the mid month inspiration for the The Heart Desires Challenge #13 which runs through June 30.
Here's how I was inspired by the inspiration image
I was drawn to the green, red and black color combo. I've heat embossed the Waffle Flower Enveloper Little Birdie stamp in black and then loosely watercolored in red and green.

Over to my card. I wanted to make a card like this the moment I saw the Happy Day stampset from Waffle Flower Crafts
I masked out the stamped image and watercolored the background. I really like how this turned out. Hop on over to the Heart Desires blog to play along.

Stamplorations June CAS Challenge

Hello everyone! I hope you are having a great week. Can you believe it's June already! The year is flying by so fast!! Today I'm sharing a CAS card that I made for the Stamplorations June CAS Challenge. The theme for the month is
Anything CAS going with the optional twist being to use a masculine color. Remember as always
  • You can link up to 3 CAS cards.
  • You can enter a CAS card with or without the optional color twist.
  • Non-STAMPlorations products are OK
  • Prizes: $10 GC for the winner; $5 GC to the top picks

 I had a blast making this one layer CAS card. I started off by masking a portion of the ship for the waves and then went on to mask the ship and the waves to add the sun at the back. I hope I have not gone over board with all the masking! I used distress oxide inks, I so love them, they make ink blending so easy!
The ship is from the gorgeous True North Stamp set and the sentiment is from the Noteworthy 2 Stamp set.
