Colorful Paintbrush Card

Just wanted to use some The Alley Way Stamps that I haven't used before. I made this quick and easy colorful paintbrush card!

Paintbrush and sentiment digis by TAWS.  Colored the paintbrush with Copics.  Added some splotches with SU's Gorgeous Grunge stamp set.  Inks, paper, cardstock, and candy dots are all SU.  Baker's twine is from my stash.

Custom Card Monday

How is everyone's weekend going?  I love Easter, don't you?  I gave up sugar for lent.  That was probably the hardest thing I've given up for lent! (Last year I gave up coffee and it was one of the best things I did for my body).  I finally had some sweets for the first time since March 4! :)

Anywho, it's Monday! Which means time for another card!  This one came from a customer who wanted a birthday card for her pilot brother.  Found some cute stamps at Deasy Designs! LOVE them!

Colored the digi with Copics and sponged a sky background with SU inks.  Clouds are from the SU cupcake builder punch.  Paper is some retired SU paper (it was from a Halloween stack).  Candy dots are also from SU.

Challenge 63 for Lia Stampz - Pastel

There's a new challenge at Lia Stampz this fortnight! We want to see your pastel projects!

Here is mine:

I used the digi called Balloon.  I inked her up simply with some Copic markers. The cardstock, stamp, and pearl are all Stampin Up.   You can't really see it because of the photo, but the sentiment reads, "for your shower." 

Can't wait to see what you guys create!
