Beach B-day - Distress watercolour

Summer is here! Wouldn't we all like to go play on the beach? It's a great place for a birthday party or any kind of party or for any reason at all. Just don't' forget the sunscreen!

For my card, I used a House Mouse stamp coloured with Distress markers and a sentiment from Art Impressions.

Dew Drop Inn - Through the Craftroom door, watercolour, stencil, inside shadow box

This week's sponsor for the Through the Craftroom Door's blog challenge is Pattie's Creations. The random draw prize is 3 images.

I am an Artist and Internet Technology Specialist. I have created my very own character and her best friend, her name is Pattieboop and her best friend is a very petite CAT named Allie. I love to draw and create my own digital images to use while crafting. My digital images that you find here are mine and I want to start sharing them with you. I am applying a small fee for my images and I know you will just love them.

My project is a square card with an inside shadow box that folds flat for mailing. I coloured the adorable Dew Drop Inn with Nuvo watercolour pencils and embellished it with die cuts from Hero Arts and CC Designs, stamps from Hero Arts, and stencils from Elizabeth Craft Designs, Stencil Girl, and FolkArt.

Cheers - masculine card, watercolour Distress marker

Almost all congratulatory cards for weddings, baby announcements, engagements, and other hetro coupling events tend to be focused on something suitable to give to the woman. But, what if your friend or family member is the bloke in the couple and you want to congratulate him on the event? I decided to make a card for such an event using Unity stamps and masculine colours and an unfussy layout.
