Sightseeing with Heart2Heart Challenges

This week's challenge at Heart2Heart is a Sightseeing Challenge.  I knew I wanted to play with my watercolor paints so I scrolled through my CTMH cartridges until I found the perfect card to create a night sky with splatters of white and yellow!  What could be more perfect for a sightseeing challenge than a night time in Paris scene?
This sweet scene is from our Artfully Sent Cartridge, one of the three CTMH cricut cartridges that will be retiring at the end of the month.  Art Philosophy, Artfully Sent and Artiste are all retiring while Artbooking and Artistry will be joined by a new cartridge!  
To make the watercolor splatter effect, get your paint brush REALLY wet with watercolor and then tap the brush against your other hand.  The size of the spatters are effected by the size of the brush so the bigger the brush, the bigger in dimension the splatters will be.  I used a medium round brush to do these.

I used the hide contour function to make copies of the poodle and the woman plus an extra layer for her dress so I could add a bit of extra dimension to this card.  Her dress is from our current Florence collection - such a pretty paper!

Heart2Heart Challenges - Magical!

This week at Heart2Heart we are getting Magical and celebrating CTMH's Magical paper collection!  I wanted to show you something today that you might not be aware of - that you can use our sticker Compliments twice!
I had already used the black "Big Smiles" sticker from our Compliments collection on another project but I wanted to make a fun birthday card using the same sentiment.  Our stickease always have a margin on the outer edge of the sticker that ensures your sticker is lined up nicely when they cut them but it also gives you the opportunity to use the negative cut on additional projects!

 I cut the empty sticker outline from the sheet of stickease and then bubble cut around it.  After carefully laying it down with all the inside pieces like the black holes in the letter e and g, I added some sparkle with my Wink of Stella pen.
I used several of the chipboard compliments and a variety of papers to make a high impact fun card.

I hope you'll add a dash of Magical fun to your day by joining us at Heart2Heart Challenges this week!  Just create a project using this paper pack, the colors or the name as an inspiration and then share your project with the Linky provided on the Heart2Heart Challenges site!
