OLW - 60 Quick layers of ink.

This week's OLW challenge  http://simplicity/   is to make quick and easy cards with nothing but layers of ink by overlapping the stamped images and/or sentiment. The idea here is to practice whipping up a quick card or even an easy card set at the last minute with just ink and cardstock!
This was not as easy as it sounded. I did struggle again this week. I am not thrilled with my card. However I am pushed for time so this is what I have. All stamps, ink and card stock is Stampin'up. Hopefully I will be more cretive next time.  Thanks for looking.

OWL-59 Daffodils

OLW59 is an inspiration challenge based on this photo.( )

This is a hard challege for me. I like to be told what to do and not interpret other people's ideas. Anyway here is my attempt. I used Stampin"Up and Stamps by Judith and colored with watercolor pencils and inkpad for the pot. Border punch is by Stampin'Up.

OLW - 58 - Oh What Fun

This week's One-Layer Wednesday is to use yellow, orange and aqua..
This was a fun card to make.. This week again I dug out an older stamp. I must have been into children when I bought them . I guess it was when my grandchildren were smaller. Anyway I still like them. The image is by Stampin'Up and the sentiment is by Stamp your Art

I think my photograghy is a little better this week also. Thank you Susan I read your tutorial and I think it helped. You never know next week may be even better.
Thank you for taking a peek.

OLW #57

This week's challege  is to make a card with a summer/beach/ocean theme. I have chosen this stamp from Inkadinkado and colored it with copics. The sentiment is by Amuse. I have to confess I have had this stamp for about 10 yrs and have never used it. So I welcomed the chance to put some ink on it. That is what challenges are all about. Right?
I must admit I haven't quite got the hang of taking pictures yet. Either they are too light or too dark or crooked like this one. I hope I get better with practice.
