Happy Friday! OMGosh! We haven’t had much rain in the past months but we sure are making up for it. Yesterday it literally poured from the sky all day and night long!
Today, as every Friday, I have two cards to show you. The first one is for this week’s Friday Sketchers Challenge which is being hosted this week by the sweet and sooooo talented Tanja! I am sure you will love her sketch as much as I did!
You are probably tired of this color scheme but here once again I have used my old SU! stash of papers. This time I have inked up the lovely Musing Melinda. I tried out one of the new dies that Whiff of Joy has released. I can't tell you how much I am loving these new dies. For this card I used the pennant shape which I cut out twice:once in cardstock and the other in patterned paper. I simply snipped the paper one and adhered the little triangles onto the cardstock one. I think this gives it a nice, finished touch.
Don’t forget to check out all the newly released products! I will start showcasing them next week!
We hope you will be able to play along and post your own creation on the Friday Sketcher blog. Our sponsor this week is:
Be sure to check out all the samples that my fellow DT sisters have created for your inspiration.
My next card is for the Wags ‘n Whiskers Challenge. This week we are being asked to create a card with a vintage feel to it. Here is what I came up with:
First I chose one of my favorite WnW images: He Loves Me. Then I found some muted designer papers in my scrap drawers and thought they would create the vintage look I was after. I chose my Copics to match and softly air-brushed the background. I added Liquid Pearls to the petals of the flowers and some stickles to the centers. The satin ribbon is tied with the Bow Easy and I added the prima flower to create a little interest. I added the Wilton Doily at the back of the image for a little contrast. I think it makes it pop! The little pearls at the corners are Martha Stewart.
I hope you can join in on this challenge too and remember to check out our Diva’s gorgeous vintage creations ~here~
