CAS Mix Up Challenge - September 2018 - Ink Stamps with Markers - Beautiful Rose

Hello Cardmakers,

Today's post is for this month's CAS Mix Up Challenge to Ink Your Stamps with Markers + Stamping+ Your Choice. I chose this Artistic Rose from Penny Black colouring it with Stampin' Up Markers using three colours for the flower and two colours for the leaves.  I then stamped the Sentiment and splattered the three colours I used for the flower using my Aqua Painter which created a soft splatter.  For the Inside I coloured the stamp with markers and then used my Aqua Painter to add a bit more colour to make the flower and leaves appear a bit more solid.

Twofer Card Challenge #9 - September 2018 - Leaves

Hi there,
I made two more cards for the Twofer Card Challenge this month. I was lucky to have two different sized Hibiscus stamps in my individual stamp sets for my first card, which I love the colours of all the different greens and the yellow and red flowers.  The background was sponged through some plastering drywall tape, great stuff, tacky on the back so it gently sticks and stays in place until you finish sponging. The second card is fashioned on a Monstera plant on a Trellis with a Vertical Sentiment.  I stamped the leaves with Versamark and Gold embossed them.
