No Computer...two cards

Good Afternoon Everyone!

Sorry I didn't post earlier today; but I opted to not turn the PC on today until I'd actually finished the cards I was working on. It's amazing how much you can get done when you aren't sidetracked by cyberspace. The PC is as addicting for me (can you say SCS?!) as the TV is; but at least I can get something done while I'm watching TV. The first card is for my first Mojo Monday Challenge. This was a fun card to make. I used Garden Green, Cameo Coral, Rose Red, and Celery. I stamped the Print Pattern Background in Garden Green. I zig-zag paper pierced the Cameo Coral piece and then handstitched the thread across. The Celery piece is stamped with the Swirls from the Basic Backgrounds Set. The main image is from Fruit Stand. I stamped it in Close to Cocoa and then watercolored with inks and my aquapainters.
The second card is for this week's
Stamp Something Challenge. This week the challenge is to put some Glitz and Sparkle into your work. For this card I used Gable Green, Teal (non SU)Black and the patterned paper is from DCWV. The three circles were stamped with ink covered in versamark and then embossed with Iridescent Ice powder. The silver sparkly strip at the top is simply double sided tape with glitter sprinkled over it.
Kwerner should be posting Color Inspiration sometime this afternoon or evening, so be sure to keep an eye out for that. I still also need to do SCS color challenge. I was waiting for the sketch challenge today; but honestly it doesn't appeal to me, so I'm opting out of that this week.
Have a great evening everyone and I'll be back again tomorrow...with a recipe!
