Fun Colors & Washi Tape

I used the fun color challenge from The Play Date Café 

and the Make a Scene challenge at Washi Up Challenge

Stamps are by Gina K.  Stamped the flower and colored with Inktense watercolor pencils.  Punched a leafy branch and trimmed off some of the leaves to make a stem for the flower.  Covered some white cs with green chevron washi tape for the grass and adhered to the blue circle.  Also used some yellow and white washi tape for the flower center.  More washi tape along the left side with some baker's twine.  Added the sentiment which was punched out with the word window punch and attached a brad.
Cardstock used:  Gina K Pure Luxury white, Wild Dandelion, Denim and Jelly Bean.
Thanks for taking a look!

Tombow Color Challenge

Beautiful color combo for the challenge at Tombow with a twist to use Tombow Foam Tabs or Power Tabs
Image from Gina K - Oh Boy! and colored with markers.  Used a scalloped edge punch to make the waves and highlighted the edge by sponging some white ink.  Adhered the image and waves circle to the dark brown circle.  Die cut a blue circle, added some white gel pen dots and popped up with Tombow Foam Tabs.  Finished off by adding a couple of strips of washi tape.
Thanks for dropping by!

Baby Elephant

I love this sweet baby elephant from Eureka Stamps.  This card fits 3 challenges:  Eureka Stamps Challenge - Baby or Pregnancy Card,  CASual Fridays - to stamp of dp and CAS on Sundays - Pastel Pretties.

The elephant was stamped on dp then colored with Tombow Irojiten pencils and white gel pen added to his tusks and toe nails.  The b-a-b-y was stamped on the same dp.  Spellbinders dies used for the banner and the circles, circle punch used on the letters.  A piece of green washi tape and light blue baker's twine was added to anchor the baby banner.  Popped the elephant up on foam tabs by Tombow.
