1 stamp, 1 sketch, 2 cards....


The postie brought me this super cute stamp from Pink Gem yesterday and I just couldn't resist using it straight away!  Hubby went out 'to drink mucky beer' last night, as our eldest says, so I had a lovely peaceful colouring session and made 2 cards.

I was going for a bit of a vintage look for the first card, but probably ruined that with all the glitter!  I coloured the image with promarkers and then added some shading with koh-i-noor pencils blended with sansador.  Added lots of glamour dust for sparkle.  The paper is from my lovely new paper pad by GCD Studio - hubby was with me when I bought it, and he nearly keeled over with shock at the price lol, but I couldn't resist!  The snowflakes were cut with my new (oh dear, so naughty!) MS punch that I bought from Little Claire.  Plain circle cut with nesties, scalloped circle cut with a Go-Kreate die.  Added some card candy, pearl dots with a viva pen (I'm going to stop using it, I'm totally useless with it...) and a computer generated sentiment.


I went for a more modern look with my second card.  Image coloured with promarkers and koh-i-noors again, with glamour dust.  The paper is from another new pad (hangs head in shame), this one is Let It Snow by Dovecraft I think, again bought from Little Claire, as was the tag die, which is from this set.  MS snowflake punch as before, card candy, computer generated sentiment and a button from my stash.  Added some stickles dots around the scallops, another mistake I think!  This one is for an order, but I've just loosely attached the sentiments on each card so that I can swap them if my customer prefers the other one, or in case she wants them both.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
