Yay, I'm finally home. There is nothing like coming home after being away. My husbands surgery went very well and it looks like he should heal up no problem.
All weekend I have been looking at all the beautiful cards that everyone else has created, and I have been itching to try out a few things myself. For my first card I decided to save time and create a card using two challenges. The first is Beate's layout on Friday which looked like so much fun. The second is today's color challenge. Therefore the CS colors are celery DP, Ruby Red , Eggplant and water color paper. The Image is colored in using Re-inkers of varying shades to match the CC. The circle was edged with an interesting decorative scissors that had uneven bubbles which I thought matched the whimsical image. Stamps are French Flair, Fancy Flexible Phrases and the main image is from American Art Stamps. I added stickles to the flowers, and Sakura Star Pen is added to the dress, some dots on the paper and lining the Flair image. Finally I added White Signo Gel Pen for stitches and decoration.


This second card is extremely simple. I was more interested in coloring the image and did not have a clue on what layout I should use. After fiddling and going through lots of bits of paper, I gave up and put it on a simple layout. I'm not sure if the background is too bright, but what is done is done. The card is Marigold with Daisy D and Basic Grey DP. The cheese is applied to jumper rings so that they dangle, the ribbon is SU, and the Image is MFT colored in with Prisma and Gamsol. I actually really loved coloring this mouse in and can't wait to try some of my other images with Copic markers. Anyways this is all I could get done, but i hope to participate in tomorrows challenge, and that you have enjoyed my postings for today!
