I have a few fun cards to share with you today!
This first one I'm linking up to Mojo Monday's Sketch Challenge. I used their sketch to create the layout.
The background is just regular white cardstock. I added some paint splatters by mixing some of my yellow ink with a little water, and then using a paintbrush to flick some of the ink on.
Then I used some green carstock from The Shimmer Matstack by DCWV. I stamped a polka dot background onto it with Versa Mark, and embossed it with clear embossing powder.
Finally I cut out the speech bubble with my Cricut, and stamped and embossed the sentiment. The little yellow heart is also stamped and embossed. Its a pretty simple look, but I like how it turned out. I think it has kind of a comic book vibe going on.
This next card I am linking up to Simon Says Stamp's Monday Challenge Blog, and it has a totally different look.
The challenge was to use distressing in your project. I only own one shade of distress ink- Tea Dye. I used it to stamp the faded text background, and I also did a little more distressing around the edges.
I used a paper doily and a scalloped circle cut from my Cricut to cover the bottom corner. Then I inked up the purple flower, which is also cut from the Cricut. The two little flowers I bought somewhere, but I can't remember the brand. I added some fun brads to the center of all the flowers.
My sentiment is an epoxy sticker which I stuck to some paper and then cut out. The little pearls I glued on with some Glossy Accents.
So there it is! Two very different cards for today's challenges. Enjoy!
