It's Life's Little Moments

Happy MONDAY! Here is today's card for the Clean and Simple card challenge. Today we had a color challenge where we could pick from several colors.

 I decided on doing a starry sky which I've been wanting to try forever! :) I finally found a lone star stamp just laying around. It's from one of my old Stampin' Up stamp sets... I have no idea which one. LOL! ;-) 

I stamped the stars in versamark randomly and then took the handle of a paint brush and pressed it into the versamark a little. Then stamped little random dots around the stars with it. :) I embossed the stars using white detail embossing powder. Then took toilet paper in a ball and pressed it into my Navy Studio Calico ink! Using a circular pressing motion I swirled it all around to create the background! :) 

I colored the adorable bunnies from Mama Elephants Honey Bunny stamp set using my copic markers and added some wink of stella glitter to their tails. :) 

I hope you love this! 

Hugs, Ash-

Howdy. Aloha. Hello.

Happy Tuesday! I hope you're having a great day! Here is my card for today's color challenge. We were supposed to use Raspberry Ripple, Old Olive, & Island Indigo. I used those colors in Tim Holtz watercolor markers to create the background! :) 

I embossed the background greeting first in versamark and used white embossing powder. Then the embossing resisted the watercoloring to leave it white. :) Then I die cut the large HELLO 5 times and layered them together. Then added the hearts, wink of stella glitter and glossy accents. :)

I absolutely love how it turned out. Then I added 2 layers of washi tape to the right and added a paper smooches button to the right. :)
