No Line Coloring

Good morning! Do you all go on kicks with crafting?  Find a technique and keep doing it over and over?  Please tell me that it isn't just me.
I've decided that I really LOVE the no line coloring look.  To me it looks like I really know what I am doing. HA! Like I am some sort of professional or something! ;)

I used this MFT stamp and stamped it in Tim Holtz Spun Sugar. After I stamped it, I masked it so I could create the background.  
The background was done using the negative space of a die cut circle from card stock.  I placed it down and sponged pink and green inks. Then I peeled my mask off and started the coloring of my mouse. 
After I was done coloring I stamped the sentiment and added some flower sequins. I added clear drops to the centers.  I tied satin ribbon to the top  and added a vintage button to its center.

Thank you all for your prayers regarding my daughter, Cortney.  She had the MRI and 24 hour EEG.  I am so happy to say that she did not have any seizures and is able to be weaned off of the Depakote!
The power of prayer is amazing!
Thank you so much my friends!! 
Have a wonderful day!!

Using Negative Space With SRM Stickers!

Good morning!  I am up on the SRM Blog today with a card that was inspired by Jennifer McGuire.  She had a video HERE that showed how to use negative space from a die cut.  I loved it so much I decided to give it a try!  It took a little bit of time to cut the image 6 times and carefully stack them up to give them the dimension that makes them really stand out. 
I colored the top layer with Copics and gave them a coating of glossy accents.  I die cut a flower, colored it, and gave it the same layer of glossy accents. 
I die cut the circle and added SRM's Life is Good Sticker collection as the focal point.  I adhered the flowers around the sentiment and glued on a few pearls and rhinestones. 
In a bit, Cortney and I leave for the hospital.  Prayers are appreciated that it all goes well!!
Have a wonderful day my friends!

Fun Shaker Card!

Good morning!  I am up on the Scrapbook Adhesives Blog with a fun shaker card! 
I borrowed this cute stamp from my Mother in Law.  I believe it is a Stampin' Up! set.  I colored it using Copic markers.  I added a few details with a white gel pen. 
I cut the image with two Spellbinder's rectangle dies.  I adhered my acetate to the back  and built it up using Crafty Foam tape. I added my sequins and adhered the main image behind it. The entire shaker was adhered to Lawn Fawn's plaid paper.  I tied satin string at the top and thought it would be fun to add 3 teeny pom poms to the center.  I used Dodz to adhere them. 
My sweet girl comes home for a week today.  Tomorrow she is having an MRI and a 24 hour EEG to check her seizure activity.  She has been on Depakote most of her life and unfortunately it is hard on the liver and detrimental to her bones.  (she already has osteopenia) So we are hoping that if her seizures have stopped (she hasn't had one in over 5 years) that we may be able to pull her off her medication.  We will be spending the night at the hospital.  Prayers are appreciated!
