I've got a couple of cards to share today, and I hope to get a few more done before the Cubs play tonight. We'll see what happens...Anyhoo.... This first card will head off to a couple of challenges. Over at Less Is More, the challenge is to use non-white, white space. It will also go to the current Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge, where I've used the far right down trio; tag, kraft, potted plants.
Check. Check. Check. Check.
Found this scrap of BB blue in my files, as well as all the papers except for the white base, which you can't see. I used my Ziggies to watercolor the HA cactus and planter. Tried stamping the little cactus flower, but it didn't look exactly the way I wanted, so I just die cut some yellow/orange gingham and added some random blue sequins to the centers. The sentiment is AE.
This next one is for the Curtain Call Challenge. This one asks us to use neon colors. Usually I'm not very good at neons; I tend to go overboard and my cards end up garish. This stamp set worked out much more to my liking. And while I'm at it, I think that since it's Anything Goes at SSS, I'll pop it there too!
Here' what mine looks like:
My friend Mary buys the same pair of shoes in several colors. When she's feeling sassy, she'll actually put on two different colored shoes as long as they match her outfit. She cracks me up. This one might have to be saved for her birthday.... All the stamps are from Studio Calico, and I colored them with various Copics. A couple of star sequins, a ME die, and a scrap of hot pink for the card front. Boy, I'll tell you what.... If I hadn't gotten a MISTI, I would never have attempted to stamp these. Thank heavens for the MISTI. I highly recommend them. And with that, I'll stop and get to some commenting, and maybe, just maybe a bit of housework (nahhhhh.... tomorrow's a new day!). Happy dances everyone.
