Details to come....(now they're here with another card too!)

Hi All!

Ok, so I didn't get a chance to get back yesterday; but I've already been busy stamping this morning. First let me post the details about yesterday's card and then we'll get to today's. This card combines Wednesday's SCS sketch challenge as well as the Sponged Sky tutorial also from SCS. This was a fairly easy technique to do. I'm not sure if mine turned out as well as some other examples I've seen; but I think it's not too bad. I also used the rock n' roll technique with the butterfly from Garden Whimsy. If you saw the card yesterday, you'll notice that the one here today is a bit different. That is because I actually went back and added the paper piercing around the top edge. I think it added just a bit of oomph to finish it off.
Now, onto my card for today. I stop by and visit the Zindorff brayer blog quite often. I'm usually too scared to even attempt to try to do one. This morning, however, I decided to jump in there and just give it a shot. Now, mine is not nearly as wonderful as hers; but for a complete brayering amateur I think I did ok. I had to tweak some things because I didn't have the exact same materials. If you get a chance, check out her blog and try one of her tutorials. I am off now to get ready to run some errands. I will try to come back tomorrow for the WSC and the OCC challenges.
Have a great day!
