It’s the time of the year where we send our notes of appreciation to those who have supported us. Before we let this stamp set go, here is one more very quick project. After I stamped the flower with Rose Red, I used a sponge dauber to rub the Pretty in Pink to give it a bit more colour. After spraying the smooch spritz, it added a shiny affect as well as the slight bleeding of the ink made the flowers look more full and even a little dreamy.

I am just on a roll today. I managed to make 2 cards today, both inspired by sketch challenge on Just Add In (JAI52). This is the first one and thought I’d change the style up a bit for something more cute. The sheep is stamped on vellum and rubbed with a stylus to make it look “wooly”. It’s also one of the techniques used in a technique class.

I won another challenge with this card! Yippee!! Glad you all liked it!!! See other winners of this challenge here.
My first with the Bigz Lattice Die. It went well with the Colour Challenge on Stampin’ Royalty with Rich Razzleberry, Early Espresso, Marina Mist, and River Rock. The lighting makes the card brighter than it is but the close-ups should show the softening of colour on the lattice. Love this lattice!

I am really starting to get hooked on these challenges. The theme is different every week so I get an idea for layouts, colors, themes and scads of inspiration from other challenge entries. What do you think of this birdie card? I’m thinking about doing a class of all my challenge cards. Maybe we’ll get a vote going soon so you can all help me decide which ones to put in the class.
