Grateful for You!

Happy Sunday!  I am popping in with a couple of cards to share.  Finally had a chance to get crafty.  Since schools out, I am hoping to have more time to play in my craft room.
For my first card, I am playing along with a couple of blog challenges.  I am playing along with MFT Color Challenge.   

I am also playing along with MFT Camp Create Watercoloring Challenges  and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Animal Magic. This first card involves watercoloring.   I started with some watercolor paper.  I used versamark and white embossed the circles background stamp.  I made sure this image was not a perfect stamping because I was going for a softer more distressed look.  

I used blueberry and gumball green MFT inks to watercolor a sky and some grass.  I add some fine splatters as well as some bigger splatters to create dimension.  I included some white acrylic paint with the splatters.  To add even more texture, I added a few spritzes of goosebumps spray. 

I stamped and die cut these pigs using MFT The Whole Herd stamps and die namics.  I colored the pigs with copics to comply with the color challenge colors.  I finished with a white embossed sentiment and some clear sequins.  

For my second card, I am playing along with this week's Color Throwdown Challenge and MFT Camp Create Glitzy Glitter Challenge.

 I used MFT Thankful Thoughts stamp set and Words of Gratitude die namics.  I also used MFT fishnet cover up and Feathers and Arrows die namics.  I added glitter to the tips of the feathers.  I used black glitter card stock for the word.  I finished my card with a few sequins.

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
