I have a couple of cards for you today.  

I am not sure if you are like me, but I need simple.  Having my handy ready made backgrounds are even more important now.  I made a huge batch of panels with various stencils (just use your favorites) and experimented with pastes, paints and color bursts.   When I need to make a card I then can go to my container full of them and use them as needed.  In fact because of having my backgrounds already done I was able to create these cards in the w&w storage unit.

For these cards I found a panel that I had used Ken Oliver color bursts watercolor powders on and then overlaid with Nuvo metallic pastes using the Scenery: The Leaf Effect Creative Screenings.  I cut the panel into 2 parts and then adhered them to larger panels of white cardstock before adhering them to a yellow and orange card base.  I stamped the sentiment from Wish Big with Evelin T Designs on each and that's all that was needed for some gender neutral autumnal color-inspired cards.  

 

Anyone can get out their stencils and various coloring mediums and just have fun like I did!

Hope you had an incredible time hopping!  You've come to the end of the blog hop, but there are bonus prize sponsors to visit and of course if you started here go to DeNami Design right now to start the hop!

Happy hopping,
Shay.
