Missed Monday but here is Wednesday!

I missed mondays challenge due to being out of town all weekend...But I am back on for Wednesday!
Wow, this is the perfect challenge as I just made this card for my sister...it has the galaxy background I learned by watching this video:  Galaxy Background from The Craft Bunny, she was really easy to follow! Thank you!!

I had the cosmic stars set from Mama Elephant and colored them with my alcohol markers and Wow, what a cosmic card.....

I am in a card swap with my sister we do 3 cards a week to each other using various themes or companies, this was my Mama Elephant card to send to her:

Happy Wednesday!

Distress This! Oh Boy!!!

I am so happy for today's challenge! It is distress time!
I just bought all of the little distress ink pads from ranger and started playing with them....
I was never a messy crafter, I like things clean and simple but I always loved the look of the distress backgrounds and altered stuff people made, but I just hated getting my hands dirty....

But after watching all the youtube videos of stampers inking their backgrounds and not getting all messy, I thought, hey, let me give this a try!

I used the Hero Arts Octopus stamp and went to town making a shaker card, I did get my hands a little inky but I am so happy I gave this a try! I then went on to make a gift for my sister, doing the mixed media stuff....Hey this is kinda fun!!



Not too shabby for a distress beginner!
Happy Monday!!

Summer Sunshine!

I love summer and sunshine...so this is a great challenge for me, I do not know the name of the stamp as I removed many of my stamps from wood and never got around to writing the names down, sorry about that, I am sure you can find it out with a search on the internet for sun stamps, I think it was stampin up for some reason??

Anyway, the sun is colored with pearl ex and fine glitter was applied for sparkle and shimmer, then it was just a matter of layering and embellishing, hope you like it!
