Friend Card and a Card with mushroom Image :)

I have got this lovely stamp from my lovely friend Vicki..(dear Vicki, many thanks for sending me this stamp... do you know how much I love this sentiment stamp) I was ever thought to buy this stamp but then forgot day at December 2014 I have got a package from Vicki in USA and the inside is this stamp this stamp is for the first time I used on my card:

I stamped the sentiment and embossed it with white embossing powder, then after I masked the white area, 
I started to choose the water color and used the pen brush I started to colored at the top of embossed sentiment. After dry I clean the white sentiment area with baby tissue.

This is the color I have choosen:

Another picture of the complete card:

I like the result of this Kuretake Gansai Tambi Water Color...its more magic than Copic Color (I bought it each piece per piece not complete till today  :) LOL) ...and with this water color.... you only buy it one set also if we go to holiday  we only need to bring a box of water color and some stamped image and then we can colored there easier :)

I love always to see and get inspired from the DT member at the CASE This Sketch challenge but I feel I always have a difficult time to choose which element for the setch...the DT Member gave many idea but off course I can not copying her idea LOL...

This time I try to choose this Mushroom Image from The Alley Way Stamp and the Butterfly and Flower from Hero Arts. I try to make ombre effect using my strip stamp but I think I am still not proffesional also forgive me with the bad result :) (blush)

I also gave the pop corn pen on the dots at the Mushroom to give it a bit texture.

Flower Background Card and a Valentine Baby Card

A challenge if its calling you run to your crafting table..this time YES :) ..I run and I have directly an idea in my head....also here is  the card I made today:

I took my Stampin Up Old stamp I have ever bought from Vera in the USA and I have never used this since that time...this is the first time I inked this cute Stamp. I stamped many times on a white paper.

I choose these colors from my watercolor set and start to colored all the flower, not with a precision I want that the card looks like it colored by a little child :) here is the result:

The sentiment I stamped on a black paper and embossed it with orange embossing powder. For more attractive, I colored again one set of this flower and fussy cut and with double tape foam I add on the black strip.

I love the end result of this fast colored the Flower with water color I need 7 minute and total around 12 minute to finished this card :) yippiee...I like to make a fast and easy card..and my  new water color set really help me much by coloring this time... :)
