New Cards



Decided to work on SCS challenges tonight. Color Challenge was apricot, rose and green, so I used the owl image from Anna Griffin papers and embossed the edges. I think it needs a sentiment but I'm not sure what it should say or where I might put it. The other card is this week's sketch challenge. I love the layout of this card. I used distress paints from Ranger on pink cardstock then rolled my flower roller stamp through it. I heated the paint to make the crackle pop. I used distress ink to blend over the floral image to really show the cracks in the paint.

Then, I used a scallop ribbon on the curved image to make it a little frilly. The stamp is from Red Lead Paperworks, I love the vintage feel to her. These were both really fun cards to play with.
