Today I have some challenge cards to show you. The first is for Angel's birthday countdown daily challenge. This is actually the first of hers, that I've been able to do. Angel has a new challenge every day until her birthday, and she is even giving prizes. Check out all the details at her blog if you'd like to know more.
One of my favorite In Colors last year was Marigold Morning, and that is what I decided to use for my card base. My beautiful flower is found in the new Floral Frenzy Lizzie Anne stamp set. I stamped the flower with Palette Noir on Naturals White, then watercolored with my Aqua Painter and re-inkers. I used Stardust Stickles, and an Adornit Gem to add sparkle to the center of the flower. The flower was cut out, then mounted to a piece of Soft Sky paper (which was previously pierced with my kit). The strip of designer paper is Little Girls from Cosmo Cricket. The ribbon is from the Sherbet Ribbon Originals collection. You will find the sentiment in the Lizzie Anne Sketched Sentiments set.
My second card is for a couple of different challenges. First being Beate's WSC23 and second... Sharon's Stamp Simply Challenge No. 4.
I just received my Flying Stars Penny Black Stamp from Eclectic Paperie, so I wanted to use it right away. It's a large stamp, so it was perfect for the challenges. My card base is River Rock, and the patterned paper is Stella Ruby from BasicGrey. My image is stamped with Old Olive on Very Vanilla card stock. I colored it with my Stampin' Write markers, and Aqua Painter on the leaves. I thought it needed some sparkle, so I pulled out my Spica Glitter pens (Clear & Pink), and gave it some pretty shimmer. The ribbon is 5/8 Old Olive grosgrain. I wanted to keep it simple, as in Sharon's challenge, so I decided my card was finished.
I hope you enjoyed my challenge cards, and wish you to have a wonderful Sunday! Thanks for looking!
