A Colorful Life Designs August release

It is August 1st, 2022 and that means it is release day over at A Colorful Life Designs. Today I have eight (8) cards to share with you, and the first card is using the beautiful Honeycomb Mask along with the Layered Bee.

The Honeycomb Mask is done on Arches cold press watercolour paper with Daniel Smith watercolours in Hansa Yellow, Lemon Yellow and Permanent Orange with Pyrrol Orange, and a few with drops of Cadmium Orange Hue.
For the bee I used a heavy layer of Black Soot. The wings are done with vellum and I drew the lines on one of the wings, then copied it to the other so they would match.

The yellow is watercoloured using Daniel Smith Hansa Yellow, and to finish I added a few small yellow gems.
This is the August release with all the stencils available. I have not used all, but quite a few. The rest of my cards are using dog and cat related stencils.
First up I am using the three part stencil called Layered Dog Bone Lattice. My card is 5.5 inches square. The first layer is the bones, the second layer are the paw prints and the third are the hearts.

I used distress inks in Peacock Feathers, Wilted Violt and Mowed Lawn, along with some die cut dogs by Impression Obsession.
For the inside of the card I used Black Soot with Wilted Violet and Peacock Feathers for the stencil words.
This stencil is Loverboy. How cute is the little heart on his left side. I used texture paste on Kraft for this card. Added a top layer with foam tape to show off the stencil work. The inside also has an extra layer of Kraft cardstock along with a few paws and hearts.
I die cut the two red hearts, added a paw print to the larger heart and attached it to card front. Then glued on second heart.

Up next is Shake It!
Giggles, I could not resist making this card using the Layered Dog Bone Lattice, along with distress ink in Walnut Stain and Warm Lipstick. I stamped the dog using Memento Ink and coloured with Copics and die cut using a circle die and attached to card front with foam tape. 
For the inside I matted the edge with cardstock coloured with the Worn Lipstick and on a piece of white card I placed the dirty stencil from the application on the front of the card and wiped it off with a baby wipe, which transferred the ink to the piece of card in a lighter brown. A great way to not waste your ink.
A split screen of dogs and cats - lol! Loverboy is on the right upper done in Walnut Stain and Meow on the lower left done in Worn Lipstick. For some reason I love the Worn Lipstick for the kitties.
The stamped image is from Stampendous and coloured with Copic markers. The sentiment is from Tim Holtz. I finished with a few enamel dots.

Moving on to the kitties now.
For this card I am using Gina K Design Blue Raspberry for the front of this card, I love this colour of blue an thought it worked well for a somehwhat masculine card. Using the Stencil Kitty Face, I applied texture paste to the card front and set it aside to dry.
Once dry I added foam tape to the back of the card panel and attached to my card base. I then die cut the letters 3 times each, glued them together, and added them to the card using foam strips. A very simple and clean card.
Another card using Kitty Face, applying distress oxide inks in three different colours, starting at the bottom of the panel using Spun Sugar, Kitsch Flamingo and Picked Raspberry, leaving room for the sentiment on the left side.
For the sentiment I used Black Soot and Picked Raspberry. I also did the strip on the left side using the Picked Raspberry. Inside the card I followed the same pattern, but reversed the ink colours, ending with the darker colour and matted the piece with a Picked Raspberry matting.

To finish I added Pops of Unicorn Tears to the nose of the kitties. So cute!
And to end this post I have my final card, using Kitty Pals along with blue ink. I did the left kitty slightly darker than the right kitty telling myself that was a male, and the right a female!
Finishing up I added a few enamel dots along with the sentiment which is attached using foam tape.
