It's not often I jump right in to play at challenges these days, but this one at Fusion today immediately gave me all the feels today!
Hope you've had a great week! I'll see you again tomorrow!

Here is how I made it the perfect environment for a sleepy seafaring sailor - although how he could sleep through those waves is beyond me:

This beauty was once again the result of rescuing that leftover ink on my stencil[s]... isn't that water-y-broken-china-ink gorgeous?? I'm giving you a little teaser here for the next time... those ocean waves? More A Colorful Life Designs soon...

[The sentiment comes from that set I borrowed from Marcia a few weeks ago.]
Another Friday Fun-day at Doodlebugs! I've brought back the remaining three Pinkfresh Beautiful Blooms from last week - attempting to be better at using those beautiful leftovers ya know! The top row of blooms in this set reminds me of Forget-me-nots, lavender, and periwinkles - they all call for blue!
Here's a sneaky peek - hope you drop by our Doodlebugs blog for the full reveal!

Hello my friends! Don't we all wish we could have every speck of every release that we admire most? When Pinkfresh Studios has a release, I try very hard to 'do well with' what I allow myself to indulge in.
I resisted buying the stamp set from the Rainbow Floral Suite - but HAD TO have the washi tape and dies AND stencils. Here are a few ways I used that tape - just one of the many blooms - from the left on white paper, middle on gingham* paper, and right on kraft plaid* paper...
This sentiment comes from PF Cosmos Bunch. The panel die is PF Mini Slimline Essential bundle. The dots are Altenew
That's it for me today - we're having lots of rain today, and it has warmed just enough to have my perennials peeking! Beware of the forecast, little friends!

- April, according to my research, is the NATIONAL MONTH OF HOPE -April 2022 - so our cards will have a theme of HOPE! [my word of the year!]
- You’re welcome to think Easter, if you’d like, or April showers. Flowers are not quite blooming in Michigan, so NO FLOWERS!
- Dies, stencils, embossing are all approved!

Wow, kinda bright for me, right?? Even though I love them - and the fact that I got two cards from each stenciled panel - I thought of another way to add ink... sponged water-coloring!! This time on regular old Neenah Solor White 110# cardstock!
- It's as simple as smooshing inks,
- having a little dish of water on hand - not too much water!
- grab a few blending sponges,
- and dab away until your heart's content!
Thank you ACLD for your generosity - and Amy for the invitation to play! You can find this 6x9" Flower Overlay stencil HERE at A Colorful Life Designs!

I found a beautiful way to 'add a heart' by tucking in a postage stamp from The Greetery's Pretty Postmarks - a bit of scripty goodness from that same set on my old favorite Audrey panel from W&W for another punch of purple. I also snitched Marcia's use of those gorgeous black ferns - so incredible. this one is from PTI's Into the Blooms: Dahlia die set.
