Happy Wednesday All!! Today I have two cards to share with you. I know I listed my other card later last night and many of you probably didn't see it but I really wanted to post these cards for today's challenge. If you are interested, you can scroll down to my next post.
The first card, today, is for the Whiff of Joy Sketch challenge/ Guest Designer Call and CC208 Color Challenge (Kiwi Kiss, Pink, and Chocolate Chip). I love Whiff of Joy so I figured I would atleast try the sketch even if hundreds applied also. I received my Spring set of Stamps from Whiff of Joy last week and was so happy to ink up my first one. They are so adorable. I used the stamp Willow Sitting with the floral wreath and their butterfly. I colored it with gamsol. I had a very difficult time finding designer paper with the color challenge colors but I finally did find it! Basic Grey comes through for me again!!!




MY second card uses Roxi's Wednesday sketch challenge. I even posted it before 11:00 a.m. I can't believe the number of people who had already uploaded their cards. They must get up at the crack of dawn. I was up at 4:00 a.m. to finish these cards since I have a very busy day. Lol!! Roxi's challenge was for clean lines using all squares but I wanted some texture so I added the lace, craft hemp, dry embossing, distressing, and pearls. I wanted a shabby chic kind of look and I think I accomplished that. I had a difficult time finding a long and narrow stamp so I dusted of my Watercolor Garden 2 set and used that. The one piece of designer paper I used was from retired SU Western Sky. I have been hoarding it. It goes so nicely with the new in colors (Baja Breeze).
