Old Barn Watercolor by Karen Day

Hello Ai fans!
I had fun painting and distressing today, using the newly released Old Barn Mini Set (Sku #4807)
which is one of the Watercolor Minis collection:
 I love this!  The set includes the barn, the tree, and the fence stamps, so I added in the tiny leaves stamp that is part of Covered Bridge Mini Set (Sku #4808), the tiny grass from WC Foliage Set 1 (Sku #4051) and the Teeny Tiny Flowers from WC Flower Set (Sku #4052)
 After my painting was complete, I grunged up all the edges a little, and sponged some soft brown ink on.  I used my edge distressor to tear up the edges a little, and got out some sandpaper as well.  I added the pewter brads to the corners to make it look like the picture was tacked up on the wall.  Happy stamping!

Quilting Sisters by Kerry

Hello Ai friends and happy Monday to you!

Today I'm sharing a sweet card using the Hobby Lobby wood mounted stamp called Quilt Sisters.

I stamped these Girlfriends twice for the card.  I colored one image with Copic markers.  And I wanted to try something different, lol!  So, the other one with Marvy LePlume markers in Terra Cotta (with watercolor paper) and I soften the lines with a damp water brush. I also added a couple of fun sentiments from the Quilt set.

Copic markers used:  B52, B93, B95, BG11, E00, E04, E33, E35, E42, E43, E44, E47, G40, G94, R20, R32, W2, W4, W6, V12, Y28, Y32, YG03, YG63

Happy Howl-oween from Kitty! by Reneé Matarese

Hello Ai fans!

Today I'm sharing a card that just cracks me up!!  I'm not one to dress up my pets but I do have friends who do and I love seeing their photos.  How many cats do you think are going to have this look on their face this Halloween?!

I love his little angry eyes.  Yes,  I am choosing to think that it's a poor male cat that some owner dressed up in this little outfit.

I used one of the other verses on the inside of the card.

Copics used: C0, C3, R00

Happy Birthday Monster by Sharon

Hello AI Fans!! 

I love stamps that can be altered and used for other things! This adorable little monster ( #4680 My Feet Set ) is a Halloween Shaker Stamp that has a pumpkin candy bucket attached to him. But it's easily cut out so he can be used for a fun Birthday card or a "just because" card. He's even more fun cause his cute monster feet are on a Wobble! I used one of the brand new mini Wobbles and didn't have to trim it at all and it still wobbles beautifully!! LOVE!!! 

Copics used: B00, B02, B04, B06, YG61, YG63, YG67, YR02, YR04, YR07, YR09, E23, E25

Papers used: Doodlebug Take Note

Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit and hope you have time this weekend to get crafty!
