Two for Today

Hi!  Today's cards are a mix of inspiration!  I picked out the stamp I wanted to use first and then had to come up with how to create with it.  

The first one is for the Operation Write Home/Our Daily Bread Designs February challenge.  The challenge is to use brown as the main color on your card.  Of course this makes me go straight for making a masculine card and this is what I came up with.  

The papers are from We R Memory Keepers and the stamp is Hero Arts.  I colored the letters with Prismacolor pencils and added a bit of white souffle pen for highlights.  I finished it with some doodling and a bit of twine. 

This one is for the Operation Write Home Midweek Throwdown - using hexagons.  I didn't think I would get to play along with this one because I don't have any hexagon dies or punches......gasp!!!  I do have this lovely salmon paper from Studio Calico that has hexagons.  It was kind of a sweet surprise, because I bought this paper because of the color and didn't remember it has hexagons.  The background paper is from Crate Paper.  Again used Prismacolor pencils an souffle pen.  Finished this one with Pearl Pen.


Thought for the day:  "If there are ice cream trucks in the summer, why aren't there Starbucks trucks in the winter?"  - Pinterest

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!!

I like how all the colors coordinate. Your salmon paper works well for the hexagon challenge. TFS. Great job.

Both cards are great. I really like the masculine card. I can't believe you don't have a hexagon anything. I love them.
