To see who won, check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hop. Ready for some inspiration? Here are a few of the projects I have created for today’s hop:

First up is one I have made that is bright and festive!  


 I used the Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens to watercolor the flowers on this...so fun to color!  And then here is another card that I didnt color the flowers at all, just heat embossing on them!

I first Stamped the image with versamark and then heat embossed it with some black glitter embossing powders...its sooo sparkly IRL!  Close up:

And another with the background created with the new Distress Oxide inks too:


 I colored this one with some white gel pens and Faber Castell Big Brush Pen.  A little tip...if you have the Misti...I stamp my image using that and leave the stamp in place on it, then after finishing coloring, restamp the image so make you ink crisp and clean looking...( cause I color out of the lines so much it covers that up, lol!)  And one more:



 And on this one I used heat embossing in gold glitter and then my Kuretake watercolors on this one.  Like I said, this images are sooo fun to color in sooo many ways!

Beautiful flowers! Love that you showed many ways to color and create with these flowers. I kind of like the first card with the flowers on each side and a popped up sentiment in the middle.

All the different color combos are amazing, Cat.

Sherry said...

These cards are FABulous! I really love the first one with its bold colors, then I see the distress oxide BG and omgosh just the light touch of color on the flowers is amazing... really lovely cards!

Melanie said...

The are all so different and fantastic! I love how you stamped the floral element around that dotted die cut background, and how you made a scene and used it like a silhouette with ground. The yellow acetate deign is so pretty, and that is an awesome tip to restamp after coloring!

Retta Lutte said...

What unique cards! Beautiful and creative!

Jane Sirak said...

Cat, these are GORGEOUS!! I would love to see a couple videos on these cards the one you did with the zigs for sure and then the last one it looks like you use some acetate as a top layer toward the bottom? Also the one you mostly colored with a white gel pen and something else that I've never even heard of ( and that's not easy these days ). I have not looked at everyone's contribution but of the few that I've looked at yours are easily the most beautiful and the most creative I love them
