Hello

Hello there!

Just stopping by to share a couple of cards with you!

I'm playing along with CAS((E) this Sketch


I inked up some cardstock with seedless preserves distress ink than splattered it with some water.  After that dried I added some speckled spots with mowed lawn distress ink. 
I used the same technique and than stamped Mama Elephant's Botanical Hello.  I used a Copic Marker in shade BG99 and a colorless blender to shade the sentiment.  I added a few highlights with a white gel pen.  I fussy cut the floral and propped it with some foam tape. Some finishing touches...sequins from Lucy's Shop and gold thread.


For this next card...
I am playing along with CASology

I used the stamp set Beary-Special Birthday, My Favorite Things...and coordinating die set.
I stamped the images iwth black ink from Memento and colored them with Copic Markers in shades BG000, BG10, BG11, BG15, E40, E41, E42, E43, E44, E31, E33, RV00, R81, R83, C1, Y11, Y13, Y15. I added some white accents with a gel pen and some sequins from Michaels.


Thanks for stopping by for a peek!!!

Two wonderful cards Michelle but that Botanical stamp is stunning, brilliant how you did the background and the stamp itself. So eye catching and beautiful.
