I'm back...and I have got a few cards for you.

Well I took a week off of blogging but not creating. So I've got a few cards for you.

First is a color challenge that was posted in one of my favorite Facebook groups.

Here is my card.  

The softer grays don't show up really well in the picture but are there.

I used Ranger Distress Inks and watercolor paper.

It is also the StampNation Virtual Retreat this week, so I've created a few cards for the challenges posted there. 

For more info on StampNation click the link on the right side bar.

So this card was for a limited supplies challenge.
You could only use one stamp set and 3 ink pads and one other embellishment.
I used Ranger Distress Inks Peacock Feathers and Dusty Concord and VersaFine Black Onyx Inks and A Little Bit Scenic Silhouette stamp set by Sheena.

I used the Peacock Feathers direct to paper to make the second layer and used the ink left on the craft mat to create the watercolor piece then added a little dusty concord. I used second generation stamping for the different tones of black and used clear glossy embossing powder over the black ink

The next two cards are for the Getting There Challenge.  Only requirements were that you had to
use some sort of transportation or something to do with transportation on the card.

My card is pretty simple, but since that is my favorite style, it works for me.
I used a sheet of map paper from a 6x6 paper pad and stamps from a Tim Holtz set on the outside and a sentiment from an unknown set on the inside.
Here is the inside of the card.

This is the second card I made for the Getting There Challenge. Same stamp sets + the one I used
on the first SN challenge and more Ranger Distress Inks, a few Memento Inks and VersaFine Black Onyx Ink.

Hope these cards inspire you.

Happy Crafting
