   Once again, I have two cards to share.  They are very similar, but you get them both anyway:)  This first one is colored with Primsacolor pencils and Gamsol.  It is cut and embossed with a Spellbinders Labels Two die.  The matting for the image was also cut with a Labels Two die.  Then I embossed it with a Script Cuttlebug folder and lightly rubbed it with Fresh Snow ink.  The sentiment is also from Repeat Impressions.  The two patterned papers are from Die Cuts With a View - Nana's Nursery - Boy.

   For this second card, I chose to color it with watercolor pencils and a paint brush.  I cut the image and matting with a Spellbinders Label Two die.  The matting is finished the same way as my first card.  The white layer is embossed with a Fiskars texture plate.  The patterned paper is from My Mind's Eye that I got at Costco a couple years ago.
   Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

I chanced upon your Blog from Simplicity and can't stop ooooohing and awwwwwwing here. My favorites are the cards you do with stencils because I thought I was the only one in the world using those. Three stampers have given me all of their stencil collections, an embarrassment of riches for sure. But every card of yours is gorgeous and I'm happy to find you sharing your huge talent.

Thanks!

Lynette, your cards are so crisp and beautiful and the layouts just wonderful. Never overdone. I really admire your work!

Robin Kirkpatrick said...

First off, I agree completely with Leslie! Both of these cards are wonderful and you are so good at reminding me of those 'old' things I have in my stash, loved but forgotten - Nana's Nursery paper, Fiskars Texture plates, watercolor pencils...Great job!
