Color my world with family, friends and some time to be creative making cards!

I Sea it’s your Birthday…


Hello,  I have two fun cards for you today!  The process began when I decided I wanted to make a water scene and use my NBUS Seahorses from Lawn fawn. I am embarrassed to say that I have had them for nearly a year and had yet to crack the seal.  The stamp set gave me the idea to get out my Iridescent Texture Paste and the fun geometric stencil and make a fun water scene.  I also used my MFT wave stencil and my Prisma Colored pencils.  These cards were a lot of fun to create. I even added my own lines on the seahorses to give them some more personality.  I had a hard time photographing them as I am still having computer issues and as soon as I open up iphoto my computer shuts down. So, I used my phone instead.

I am playing along with 3 challenges today! I was tickled to see NBUS Challenge blog started by Darnell again….(Congrats girl!)

The layout is for CAS(E) this Sketch.

And over at CAS Stencil, they want us to use Gilding Flakes and hope my texture paste will suffice.








Have a wonderfully creative day!  Nanc’
