Trio of Color

Welcome, Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge is new this week with a great theme.  We want to see how you combine a color 3 ways!  This can be done with paper, dies, inks, embellishments...the possibilities are endless.
I used my Custom Blend ink pads for my trio of color.  Then I added some paper and ribbon for more color.  


I went straight for my Bird Silhouette die.  I love the gradient look of the custom blend ink pad.


I am so addicted to these Tiny Tattered Florals.  There is soooo much you can create with these.  Do you have yours yet? 


I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with the inked up bird.  I mean...it's a pretty good size.  Then I thought to just stamp this awesome number stamp from the Perspective set.  I just LOVE IT!


The Handwritten Thinlits are my favorite.  I love sentiments and these take the cake.  This "Moments" in Core paper from the Journey set is  perfect.


Aren't these wee tracks the cutest stencil.  A perfect way to add a layer of texture.


Another element of color is the Scribbles and Splat die.  I do love to layer and these dies make it possible.


We hope you share with us your "trio of color" for a chance to win a $50 spending spree.

Journaling Tuck Spots and Pockets

It is official... I am addicted to Journaling.  This is an inspiration post... why?  I may have become lost in my creativity... it happens.
Scroll through the the photos for ideas.  I have been inspired by my fellow journalers too.  
I kept the cover of Eileen Hull's new Journalsimple with a flipped cabinet card and some crackle paste stenciling.

Inside there are pages of Memoranda paper and Idea-Ology from Scrap ShotzMarch Scrapbook Kit.

A mini book stuffed in a pocket too.

Nicole Wright Designs Fallen Blossomis used on the tag, stamped and watercolored with worn lipstick oxide ink.

I used pages from my 115 year old art journal to create another mini.  Stamping and watercoloring throughout each page with Garden Flower and my stamp set Fallen Blossom.

Tuck spots and pockets for stuffing notes.  

The March Kit with the new Memoranda paper is perfect on it's own.  But I still cut it up and collaged with it.

I fussy cut a found relative since I am still trying to get my hands on …

NEW Make Art Blendable Dye Inks

I am so excited to be apart of the new Wendy Vecchi "Make Art Blendable Dye Ink" release.  These inks have the robust colouring of the Archivals however you can blend them!  Even combining colours to make new ones.   Ohhh delicious! 

Watch the quick video below how I blended.

Ohhhh they create stunning colours.

I even dipped my ribbon for some colour!

The butterflies are an intense rainbow of colour.

Each colour is blended over the other creating hues of other colours.

I kept the tag simple so the inks could shine with these vibrant inks.

Make Art Blending Dye Inks are a must!  Thanks for taking a look.

Watercoloring with Butterflies & Oxides

The Eileen Hull Inspiration Team has been sharing tutorials all month long.  I do have a video tutorial for this card but it won't be read for awhile.  Hey, it happens.  I at least have a couple of photo's until the whole video is posted on Creative Scrapbooker Magazines website.


Loving the new Oxide inks especially as we approach those soft easter pallets.

A little stamping.

I know it's not a box or cool journal.  One of my favourite dies is the Birds & Butterflies thinlit.  Yep, there are pretty little dies perfect for card making too.



I love the intricate butterfly to layer over.

A simple card and no it's not even a journal.

I will share the video when it's all done and posted.  I will even embed it in the post too.
Onto next month...
