3 Cards in 3 Steps

Hi there. I forgot to post this one previously! I made these three bright and cheery cards in just three simple steps using rainbows from Lisa Oxley’s Bright & Bold stack.

Card 1

Step 1 – Stamp Happy Birthday sentiment multiple times over the page making one a different colour.
Step 2 – Add one of Lisa’s rainbows.
Step 3 – Draw a border around the card including a small heart.

Card 2

Step 1 – Cut some Hearts paper from Lisa’s Bright & Bold stack to fit the card, ink the edges and adhere to card front.
Step 2 – Add one of Lisa’s rainbows.
Step 3 – Swipe a bit of gesso behind the title, let it dry then adhere a title sticker on top.

Card 3

Step 1 – Add spatters to the background.
Step 2 – Add one of Lisa’s rainbows and journal around the outside of it.
Step 3 – Add a sentiment and doodle a border, including a sun in one corner.

The hearts paper and the rainbows are all from Lisa’s Bright & Bold stack. You can find it here.

I hope you can use these as inspiration to make your own fun cards!

Ocean & Splatters

 It's the first of the month and you know what that means! Yes - the new challenge is up at More Than Words. This month you have to be inspired by the word Ocean and use Splatters on your art journal page. I found a wonderful quote online and used that:

I was in a textural mood so I added lots of cool textures to the cluster on the left then topped it with one of Lisa Oxley's hearts from ArtStacks.

Isn't that quote wonderful?

Will you join us this month? You can find the challenge here.

Happy journaling!
