This cards was made for the Technique Challenge on SCS. I used an envelope for part of it, very cool. I also got to use 2 of the newly released stamp sets. Both from Jami Bova, Wrapped in His Love and Caring Critters. I thought they worked really well together. I also used prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits, celery Shimmerz, pop-dots, a glaze pen, ribbon, a crimper, and a Quickutz diamond die.
It was really fun to make, and I can see myself making more in the future. I think this one will get sent out in the mail tomorrow :)
This second card was made for House Mouse Challenge 27. The challenge is to incorporate chipboard onto your card, so this is what I came up with. I have a tendency to forget about chipboard so this was a fun challenge for me. I used 2 House Mouse stamps, Sweet Dreams and Smell the Flowers. The papers I used are from Bazzill Basics and Webster's Pages - purple majesty. I colored the image with prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits (surprise, surprise :) and then painted the lilac with lilac Shimmerz. I used grosgrain ribbon, and hero arts flowers, and then because I didn't put any dew drops on the last card, I used 6 of them on this one :) Some from the Grapes and Leaves collection and some from the Fresh Mowed Grass collection.
This is a fun challenge that they post every Monday and you have until the following Sunday I think to get your card posted. Sometimes they have a prize sometimes they don't. But you should check it out if you love House Mouse and Friends stamps.
