Color Hues Special Double Challenge

I am joining the Color Hues TCH #36 Cards for Ukraine Challenge. Blue and Yellow.

Your thoughts, prayers and  donations are 
desperately needed for the brave democratic Ukrainians.

I made a simple card filled with Love and Caring.
If only there could be an easy solution to the horrific tragedies
effecting all of Eastern Europe.

My main image was a faux cloisonne technique using a sunflowers photo from a
plant catalog and heat embossing.

I die cut the blue pretty paper for the framing and added a die cut 
heat embossed Hugs sentiment.

Sending Love, Hugs and Prayers to all the millions affected
by the Invasion.

STAMPlorations March Stencil Challenge

February is always a month off for all our STAMPlorations Challenges.
We are now all back and looking forward to inspiring you
with our awesome STAMPlorations Products😄

I was inspired by a few Spring flowers at home beginning to bloom💕

Close Up of  Shine

I had such fun designing my ARTplorations Slimline Riotous Blooms stencil card.
I attached the slimline stencil to SU Basic White 100# 4" x 9" cardstock using masking
tape.  Then used i-Crafters blending brushes to add the Distress Oxide Inks
thru the stencil.  

I used these Distress Oxide Inks: Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed, 
Spiced Marmalade,Candied Apple, Picked Raspberry, Wilted violet and shaded Lilac.
I kept layering the colors until I was happy with the results and 
then removed the stencil.

Next I let my card front dry and then took it outside to spray with "Sheep 
Shimmer Craft Spray (Frost).  I let it dry and loved the shimmery watercolor effect.

Next I used CUTplorations Skinny Sentiments Dies for the sentiment.
I die cut the shadow layer using Ink Drops "Vivid" designer paper.
Then die cut the letters with SU Basic White and attached with Connect Glue.

I attached the stenciled card front to Basic White card base and Done!
I was very happy with the results and Loved the shimmer and Spring colors.

You have until the end of the month to play along.
We would love to have you join in the fun at STAMPlorations Stencil Challenge.

Love and Hugs..
