I hope you all had a good day yesterday. I actually made both of these cards yesterday; but just did not get a chance to get them posted until today. I am actually off to Tyler's first gymnastics competition this afternoon! We are very excited!
So here are the details and challenges for the cards:
For the first card, I used Ripe Avocado, Fine Linen, Melon Berry and White (all PTI) for my color combination. I used the Birds and Swirls cuttlebug embossing folder on the Fine Linen piece. I then took some Tea Dye distress ink and a blending tool and went over the embossed area. I used peeled paint around the edges. The image stamps are from a set of Clear Dollar Stamps I have that I stamped using various chalk inks.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:
1. 4 Crafty Chicks and Rubber Cafe: Stitching (real or faux)
2. CCEE: Swirls
3. Craft Us Crazy: Nature
4. Shelly's Images: Lots of Layers
5. Stamp Insanity: Texture (for this one I used the embossing folders and then I also added some texture on the Melon Berry piece by adding some chalk ink and then spritzing it with water, crumpling it up and then adding some more colors while it was wet. It's hard to see in the photo, though!)
6. Eat, Sleep, Stamp: Sketch
The second card I also uploaded to my SCS gallery for sketch #2 for March's Viva La Verve challenge.
I decided not to enter this one into any challenges: but I hope that you like it!
