AAA Cards Challenge #136 One Image + Spring, with video

This fortnight our challenge is using only one image only and the optional twist is Spring.
Our sponsor is Craftyscrappers.

For my card I've used a digi from Sliekje stamps, you can find them on her blog for free.

I've sized it in Photoshop and added the sentiment. I've put the Welcome between brackets as I'm sure the flower that finally came up and the human who grew it weren't too happy about a playful and naughty kitten, also a sign of Spring ;-).

I've printed the panel on Ecoline printable watercolor paper and colored it with Faber Castell Polychromos pencils and Odourless spirits.

Adhered the panel to a cardbase with tape runner. The printable watercolor paper from Talens, is very thin, doesn't like a lot of water or it will buckle, but it was fine with pencils and spirits, but it's also too thin to act as a cardbase.

rainbow card

The Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is: Whatever the weather, showcasing Sunny Studio,but I have none of their products.

So for my card I made  a sentiment in Photoshop and printed it on a panel.
Inkblended Distress inks for my rainbow (Candied apple, Spiced marmalade, Mustard seed, Twisted citron, Mermaid lagoon, Blueprint Sketch, Wilted violet and Picked raspberry)

Splattered it with water as if raindrops,forgot my inkejt might not be 100% waterproof, but it survived) and the added half a Lace Butterfly from Wild Rose Studio on the side.

3 of something

is the Less is More challenge,this fortnight. And the Simpn Says StampMonday Challenge is feminine/girly. Notsure this is girly girly but it has kitties!I am a cat person, and a girl...lol..anyway...

I've stamped 3 of the kittens from the StampingBella set of Kittens (eb778)with My Favorite Things Extreme black ink onto Crafter's Companion Marker paper and colored it with Spectrum Noir markers.
I cut the panel wonky, so had to  mat it to make it straight again. 
Used tape runner to adhere itto the cardbase.

The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp and I stamped it with Versafine Clair ink.

whatever the weather

Is the new challenge over at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, this time.
I live in the Netherlands, and the weather is cold and  drizzly, today even with hail and 2 minutes later sunshine....crazy weather.

So I thought the Carlijn Design Stamp of the Netherlands with Greetings from...was perfect.

I've used Distress Oxides with water to make the background, heat setting every layer.
I wanted it to look a bit like a map, or satellite photo.

Then I stamped the Netherlands and the greeting from Nederland groetjes with Versafine  Clair Nocturn ink.

The kitty paw is from Nederland Icoontjes and I also stamped it with Versafine clair ink, then added a bit of Nuvo Shimmer on top. It indicated where Delft is,or there abouts cos that paw is as big as three cities haha...
Anyway that's me, Delft and cats..perfect right?

Sadly I have no Sunny Studio products.
