SCS Sketch and Color Challenges

Hi Everyone!

Here are a couple of cards to share with you today. The first one is for my workshop that I'm doign on Saturday. I recently got the wheel to go with my "Cheers to You" set and thought it would be a good technique and tool to demonstrate to everyone. I also wanted to use water coloring on the glasses. I decided however that since there was so much detail with the wheel, that just filling on one of them would be best. I also discovered I only have one small stamp that says Happy Birthday. So, definitely need to do something about that soon!
The second card I have today is my card for yesterday's SCS color challenge and today's sketch challenge. The colors are Summer Sun, Riding Hood Red, and Kraft. I have to admit my first thought about these colors wasn't really hopeful; but they actually turned out going well together. I used the "Birds and Swirls" cuttlebug folder on the Red pieces. I added a bit of Always Artichoke behind the center image. I just thought it would make the trees stand out a bit. I used my watercolor crayons on the trees and finally found a water bottle that mists just enough water on the stamp without making the color run all over the stamp before stamping it on the paper.

I like the coordinating background you stamped on the first card and the pretty scene you created on the second one.
