Floating Along with Reflections

This is for today's COLOR CHALLENGE # 436 - Bashful Marina Corals, Monday's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE # 439 - Reflective Stamping, Monday's CLEAN AND SIMPLE CHALLENGE # 230 - Pinterest Inspiration and Monday's MOJO MONDAY SKETCH CHALLENGE # 301. Playing catch up with some challenges. I used a set from Marks Finest Papers that I received as a design team member and stamped on white then on acetate for the reflective stamping, I colored with copics then matted on calypso coral cs. I stamped the single swan facing the one in the landscaped image to get their necks close enough together to make a heart for the inspirational pic. My sentiments are stamped in marina mist and calypso coral and I tied some calypso coral ribbon around the marina mist cs at the bottom.
Hope you like it and now let's go earn some money.

HIs Tissue Stamped Masked Child

I used 3 shades of pink for my card and Nesties Label 4 for my masking. I hope I did the TLC right. I am finding myself without inspiration lately which I why I have not been in the galleries. I hope my mojo has not left me for good. If it has you can look for some really good sales. I have a room full of stamping stuff.

So Many July 4th Sayings

This is for today's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE # 436 - Twisted Traditions 2 where we were to make a non-traditional card using traditional holiday colors. I chose some dp from DCWV "Summer Combo Stack" I have had for eons. I paper pieced the swim suit with one piece and the hat with another then punched a flower out of the swim suit piece and popped it up on dimensionals.
This is also for today's CLEAN AND SIMPLE CHALLENGE # 239 - Theme "Summer Fun" and the beach is what I consider Summer Fun and I am sooo ready to hit it again but for now it is off to work I go.

Cat on a Paper Pieced Dress

This is for today's COLOR CHALLENGE # 432 - Smoky Curry Cabanna. I do not yet have the new in-colors so I found some dp that I am hoping is close to the colors, if not somebody post my bail as I have to work so I can buy these new colors. LOL.
This is also for Monday's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE # 435 - Angled Background.
I used an image from Stamps Away called "Cat on a dress" that I have always adored. I colored her and the cat with copics and paper pieced the dress. 
Hope you like it now off to work I go.
