Dreams take flight! (Tribute to Melissa)

I had a DT post for Colourific, scheduled to go live today and took this opportunity to make this messy watercoloured butterfly card to pay my tribute to Melissa Lane (Honeybeelane).

The Stamplorations team has put up a wonderful tribute to her. 
You can check the details over here.

Personally, I did not know Melissa, never spoke to her. But the news was a shock to me and the sadness remained with me for a long time. 
I just happened to go back over my blog the other day, to find many wonderful, kind and encouraging comments left by Melissa on my posts. 
I am sure she was an equally beautiful and kind soul. 

May her soul rest in peace.
May God give her family all the strength they need to face this situation.

Here's my card!

I have used the Butterflies take flight stamp set. I took a watercolour paper. Stamped the butterflies using distress inks through my stamping platform. 
I sprayed water over the paper each time I stamped the butterfly.
The water on the paper helped the distress inks spread all over, giving a messy watercoloured look.
Stamped the sentiment in Versafine onyx black ink. Foam mounted the panel on a card base with a strip of gold cardstock under it. 
Lastly, added lots of Nuvo drops to fill the empty gaps.

Thank you for stopping by.

Autumn greetings!

Hi Friends!
I am here with a card full of Autumn colours!
These are my favourite colours. 
The shades of yellows and oranges is always a beautiful sight.

Here's my card!

I have used the Botanical love stamp set by Create-a-smile, for my card. 
I repeatedly stamped the small leaf stamp from the set on a watercolour paper. 
Coloured them all with Zig markers. Adhered this panel to a coloured card base. 
Stamped the sentiment. "Autumn Greetings" sentiment from my stash. 
"Just for you is from "Cart full of treasures" by Create-a-smile. 
Coloured the border of the sentiment. Mounted it using craft foam.

You are pretty amazing!

Hello all!
A new challenge begins today over at Inkspirational. Theme for the challenge is Vellum. 
Use Vellum on your cards and participate in this challenge.

Here's my take on the challenge.

I have been wanting to try this Vellum card for a long time.
I diecut 4rectangular pieces with scalloped edges. Adhered two each back to back, sandwiching the Vellum in between. Repeated this on the other side too.
Stamped a sentiment from a set by Cas-ual fridays. 
Foam mounted the watercolor florals by Little Birdie crafts.
Added a few sequins. thanks

Thank you for stopping by!
Looking forward to what you make for the challenge.

Here is a CAS card, I made using Carolina's florals by @Winnie and Walter!

I stamped the solid images using dye inks. Added the finer details using Polychromos pencils. Stamped the smaller sentiment and added the die-cut. Mounted this panel on a card base over a strip of Washi tape.

Check the details in the close-up!
