Friday Sketchers & Wags Challenges

Happy Friday! Today I have two cards to show you! The other day when I was working on my cards, I was just……stuck. I just couldn’t seem to get the cards together. The images were colored and waiting but my Mojo must have taken a break. Then the mail arrived and along with it, my DT package from Stamp & Create and Lacey had sent me the most exquisite ribbon and lace! OMGosh, they are so luxurious I think it is almost sinful! LOL! I instantly set to work incorporating them into my cards and now I get to show them to you!

This first card is for the Friday Sketchers challenge. It is the wonderful Carole’s turn to host this week and her sketch is just fantastic. I am using one of the stamps that is in the Whiff of Joy’s February Stamp kit and the image is also from the kit. Isn’t this such a sweet image? She is colored with a combo of copic markers and twinkling H20s and I airbrushed the background with my Copic ABS. For this card, I used the crochet and satin lace from Stamp & Create. I love that you can still see a little bit through it to the DP which is a scrap from K&Co. The finishing touches are the prima flower and the fancy tag for the sentiment! In this next picture you can see the Twinkling H20s a little better.

This next card is for the Wags ‘n Whiskers challenge. This week it is “Freestyle”! I have used one of our newly release stamps. This one is called Snuzzle Love. What a cutie she is and a dream to color! She is colored with copic markers and I added the shading around the image with a prismacolor pencil & OMS. On this card I used the antique gold silk ribbon from Stamp & Create. Look at it! There are a whole bunch of other gorgeous colors and it feels so light and soft and makes the most beautiful bows. I used my Bow-Easy of course! I added a few prima flowers and the little pearls are from the bridal department at a craft store.
