Fill Your Heart With What’s Important – Mixed Media Tags

Today I have a pair of tags to share. Jenn Shurkus is celebrating her 10th blogiversary and has invited us to copy the inspiration from one of her projects. I chose one of her beautiful tags from March (you can see it by clicking HERE).

Simon Says Stamp’s Wednesday Challenge this week is Sparkle and Shine, and their Monday Challenge is: i scream for… using the letter i.

So, I put the ideas together and came up with these lovely, sparkly and shiny mixed media tags using some Imagine crafts products, ink and a what’s Important stamp (i words)…

Face the Sunshine – Unity Be Inspired Challenge

Hello, again!

The whim has taken me to make another card. This one was for a dear Portuguese speaking friend who needed some encouragement. I decided to use the Unity Be Inspired Challenge Sketch and colors as a starting point:


I turned the sketch on its side and came up with this:

Unfortunately, the camera makes the rose pink look more red with the yellow background… it really is closer to the sketch in real life!

Here’s a close-up of our little Latina girl. I love the look liquid pearls gives to the centers of the sunflowers!
