For this first card, I stamped the image on shimmery white paper with Versafine Onyx Black ink, and embossed with detail fine black embossing folder. I colored the image with Stampin' Up! markers. After coloring, I cut the image out with an Oval Nestability. Before removing from the Nestability, I sponged with pale yellow ink. I sponged a little bit of black ink on the edge. I embossed the background with a Cuttlebug folder and matted with black. I added some sheer black ribbon. The sentiment is from Repeat Impressions and is stamped with Old Olive ink.For this second card, i stamped the image on white cardstock and embossed with detail gold embossing powder. I colored it with watercolor pencils and a paintbrush and did some sponging with gray and yellow in. I sponged Versamark on the edges, and also the edges of the blue matting, and embossed with gold embossing powder. The patterned paper is from a Sizzix pad. I added some yellow dots with a sponge dauber. The sentiment is from Repeat Impressions and is embossed in gold.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!
