Hi! This evening I get to show you 2 cards. I wish I could say I made them both today, but one I started yesterday and just finished up today. This first one though, is all today :)
It's for the Way to Use It Challenge on SplitCoastStampers. The challenge was to pile up embellishments. I had bought these Making Memories tickets a while ago because I thought they were so cute, but I hadn't used them yet, so into the pile one went (it also was a nice flat base for my pile :) I also had these felt hearts buttons (also purchased because I thought they were cute) so I put May Arts Heart Ribbon through the button holes and onto the pile they went.
I finished the pile with a small glittered heart from Scrapworks. The base of the card is red cardstock, the bottom layer is Imaginisce Loves Me - the Game of Love, then some kraft cardstock and then the Monkey from Heartfelt Friends, colored with Copics, with Shimmerz Royal Red added to the heart, highlighted with Inkssentials white pen. Then the whole image was cut out and pop-dotted onto the kraft cardstock.
This second card was made for the Sketch Challenge on SplitCoastStampers. I used some old Colorbok papers, embossed the red layer with a cuttlebug embossing folder, colored the image with prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits, added Mocha Shimmerz to Fluffles, added some white highlights and doodled around the edge. The ribbon is an awesome faux suede ribbon by May Arts. The sentiment is from Hero Arts.
