May inspiration at VLVS!

Hi there, this month there is a fabulous new challenge over at Viva Las VegaStamps!  and here it is:
gorgeous right?? I was inspired by this piece to make an art journal spread about my love of the show "Vikings", here it is:
oohh how I love me some Ragnar!! I used a bunch of stamps to make this page including the blood dripping, bubble wrap texture, cityscape sunrise, coffee ring stain, double coffee rings, grunge circles, man and woman symbol (but only used the man), star pinbiohazard (only used the word) and last but not least the measuring tape section.  I hope you enjoyed this journal page and I'll leave you with a few close ups:

Have fun with the May inspiration and I can't wait to see how you are inspired!

Silhouette love

Hi there, today I would love to share some silhouette love! What I love about using silhouette stamps is that you can make such pretty backgrounds and let the gorgeous silhouette take center stage.  I made 3 different ATC's using the fabulous Viva Las VegaStamps!.  This first one is called "cherish" using the lovers kissing in boat stamps as well as the flying bird trio.
What I did was stamp the lovers kissing in boat stamp onto some white cardstock  that I had cut to ATC size.
Then I got out my handy dandy watercolor pencils and colored in the water and started in on the sky
and kept coloring using colors I thought would make a nice sunset background.
Then I blended in the watercolors
and then I mounted the card onto some black cardstock so it would pop more, added the flying bird trio, some gold stars and the word cherish.
The next card is called "Abu Dhabi 2015" in tribute to my recent trip to the Middle East. It was amazing!!!!

I stamped the Moroccan scene onto some white cardstock
and since my ink smudged all inside the stamped image I decided to cut that inside area out like shown below.  I also used my watercolor pencils to color in the sand.
Then on the smaller piece of white cardstock I misted it with some blue and orange inks
and the I glued the pieces together and also used the fabulous flying bird trio stamp again and added my words that I printed off from the computer and here is my finished ATC.
My last ATC is called "seek paradise" and it's another tribute to my trip to the Middle East using the fabulous camel and rider stamp as well as the seek paradise stamp along with some rub ons, clear tape and stickers.
I hope you enjoyed seeing my ATC's and as always I would love to know which one was your favorite!  I hope I've also inspired you to use some silhouette stamps as they are sooo fun!! I will leave you with a few pictures taken last month from my trip Abu Dhabi & Dubai!
 I totally wanted the photo op of me wearing the abaya but had to rip it off as I was so scared on the camel ride and I was getting hot! haha The guide was taking us up big dunes and it kept feeling like the camel was going to tip which freaked me out!!!

 I'm ready for my camel ride!
 We saw these camels just walking wild on one of our drives, it was amazing!!
If you ever have the chance I would totally recommend going to Abu Dhabi and Dubia as it was the trip of a lifetime!!! Here is the hubs and I at the Doubletree by Hilton Resort in Ras Al Khaima, it was beautiful there!!!
We also went up the Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in THE WORLD!!! It was freaking amazing!!
and here is a selfie at the Sheikh Zayed Mosque in Abu Dhabi
 What an experience, we did so much in 2 weeks and experienced so many amazing things.  I am still in awe of our vacation.
