Waterfall card - Ink Art Designs..

 Whoo hoo 

Well I love playing with different folds etc.

So today I tried the Waterfall card for the first time.

So much fun...

Stamps from Ink Art Designs

made by Katzelkraft worked out great.

So I embossed the images - coloured them in - then

inked around the edges.  With my layering I roughed

up the edges...give the card a bit more character.

Then as you slowly pull the tab - its like a little

flip chart - so cool....

Be sure to stop over at Ink Art Designs blog

for more ideas from the rest of the

design team !!!

Happy Birthday !! - Ink Art Design team

 Hey - welcome to my blog today !!

This card I made for 

Ink Art Design team today

was a bit of labour of love

Made it with my grandson in mind..

His 2nd birthday but 1st birthday

with our family !!!

Using Katzelkraft stamps...

Made this wrap around card.

I embossed the characters onto white cardstock

and coloured them in - then adhered onto my blue card.

The bubbles are from another stamp set I have...

(little bit of stickles on there for some glitter)

Then I masked the animals and splatted some ink.

Edges were sponged with some Distress ink.

And the cut out circle had the saying embossed then

sponged all round.

Inside - the final guy from the set...just chillin'

I was quite pleased how it all turned out.

for a friend

 Hi there - thanks for stopping

by today.  

November 20th was Transgender awareness day (week)

So I missed that date for this -

but hope she likes it when it finally arrives.

using the Iris folding technique for the card...

then painted the Transgender flag on the rock along

with some Mandala painting

and remember

The Transgender Day of Remembrance, also known as the International Transgender Day of Remembrance, has been observed annually on November 20 as a day to memorialize those who have been murdered as a result of transphobia. It is a day to draw attention to the continued violence endured by transgender people.
