Hello all! I am back and ready to share some cards that I have completed using two stampsets to be release from Our Daily Bread Designs on February 1. The first is using the stampset "You are the Potter" and Jenn's SFYTT (Iheart2stamp) sketch challenge. This set is so versatile and fun. It is one of my favorites!! I had so much fun coloring this image with prisma color pencils and gamsol. The DP is from one of my favorite lines of Fancy Pants (Sweet Pea). I wanted it to have a shabby chic look so I distressed it but tried to keep an elegant look to it.

The second card is made using the stampset "Serenity" from Our Daily Bread Designs. The challenge hosted by Sharon (No Time to Stamp) was to use only black ink on your card. I wanted to make my card look almost monochoromatic so I used black and white paper from Time Flies, some awesome black metallic prism paper to be found at Our Daily Bread Designs, with just a little green to make the black and white pop. I also added the elegant green pearls, gold cording and a gold bird pendant I bought from Michaels. I wanted to keep the card looking serene yet elegant so I limited my embellishments.
