The Seas and Everything that Moveth Therein

Today I'm playing along with the June CAS Watercolour Card Challenge.  The theme is OCEAN.
I've been wanting to learn more about watercoloring on cards and this challenge is a great way to do it with all of the inspiration from the design team and links on the challenge blog to techniques!
For my watercolor background I used a pouncing technique where I rubbed Ranger Distress Inks onto my craft mat, spritzed the colors with water and pounced the watercolor panel into one color at a time - drying with my heat tool between colors.  The first color I used was Cracked Pistachio, the second Broken China and then Seedless Preserves (which I just pounced along the bottom edge).

Then I stamped one of the fish from Sea Life from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous over the panel.  I layered the panel over a cream Bazzill card base using form dots.  I stamped the Psalm from Beauty by the Sea from Sweet N Sassy on a piece of watercolor paper and adhered it below the watercolor panel.

Anything Goes

Stamps:  Sea Life - Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous, Beauty by the Sea - Sweet N Sassy (retired).
Paper:  Water color paper - Canson, cream Bazzill.
Ink:  Ranger Distress Cracked Pistachio, Broken China and Seedless Preserves, Hero Hues Black.
Accessories:  craft mat, water mister, heat tool, foam dots.

Coffee Lovers Blog Hop - Keep Calm and Put the Kettle On

Here's my second card for the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop
and here is my 2nd spring design coffee card!
First, I sponged over the background using Wendy Vecchi's Check Mate Stencil with Sky Blue Ink.  I used her Stripes stencil on the top and bottom edges with black ink. I used a fun Wendy Vecchi Cone Flower stamp/stencil set for the flowers, where you stamp the flower and then there are two stencils included with the stamp, the flower shape and the stem shape, so you lay the stencil over the stamping and sponge on the color!  So easy!!  
I die cut a strip of grass out of green tissue paper and adhered it over the bottom of the stem.  I stamped the sentiment from Stampendous on a panel cut with a Stitched Mat Rectangle die from Lil' Inker Designs.
You'll find lots of Spring Coffee lovers inspiration over at the hop here

Each of Us is God's Special Work of Art

I made this card for a new challenge I just found when visiting the blog of my stamping friend Annette -  it's called Pinspired - and they choose an image from Pinterest for the challenge inspiration.  Here is this week's inspiration:
And here's my inspired card:
I used my brandy new hibiscus die that I got from My Favorite Things along with my brandy new stitched mat rectangle from Lil' Inker Designs.

I'm also entering this into Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes.

My next card was made for the Cas-ual Fridays Challenge - to use Kraft and text.
I used stamps from the Ocean Bound set by Waltzingmouse.  I stamped the frame, sentiments and anchor on a piece of kraft paper, cut it out and layered it over the kraft card base with foam dots.  It's always good to have a masculine card on hand!

Contentment Times Two

I have two creations to share today -  my first card was done all in blues for the Just Us Girls monochromatic challenge.   I'm continuing with yesterday's post theme, making this one a sympathy card.

I sponged a floral stencil for the background in Ranger Distress Weathered Wood, then I stamped the blooms on die cuts in Chipped Sapphire and Faded Jeans.  The 'in sympathy' is stamped on a sentiment strip die cut.  The flower and sentiment are popped up on foam tape and I added one lone rhinestone.

I'm going to slip this card into the Cas on Sunday - floral fantasy challenge as well
My 2nd card was made for the Word Art Wednesday Challenge - it's Anything Goes - but they provided this verse from 1 Timothy if we wanted to use it.  And I have a confession to make!  I originally thought this card would also be for the Just Us Girls monochromatic challenge - until I re-read the instructions and realized it was supposed to be blue!  But it was a happy mistake because I got two cards for my efforts!
I sponged the circles stencil for the background.  I printed the Bible Verse from my computer, die cut it with a Wonky Rectangle, sponged it before taking it out of the die, then layered it over the stenciled panel with foam tape.
