Love for inking continues...

I am back after hibernating for the weekend :) The weekends are busy for me with family, friends, movies and Monday kick starts with a lot of creativity. I made two cards today for different challenges but the use of inking technique is common in both the cards
My first card was inspired by the colors at Dynamic Duos #63 which remind me of the beautiful greenscape, the Sketch at Annabelle Stamps Blog AC 168 and use of Kraft and Twine at CAS on Sunday #13. 
To make this card, I cut out a landscape like shape on a scratch paper to do my masking and inking (using Memento Dew drop dye inks) on a white panel. The trees were made using Nestabilities oval dies and inked with sponge daubers. The tree trunk was fuzzy cut on a kraft paper. The card base was embossed using a wood Embossing folder from Darice. The bird and the sentiment were stamped (from Prima Stamp set) and finally button, twine (from American Crafts) was added.

The challenges are -


3. CAS on Sunday #13 -KRAFT AND TWINE

Now my second card, this was inspired by the photo inspiration at Addicted to Stamps and more Challenge #55 and Sketch at CAS Colors & Sketches # 35
To make this card I cut out a square panel using square swatch die from nestabilities on my card base. I stamped the leaf strip from (Studio-G iClear stamps) and also stamped the sentiment as per the sketch. I then inked horizontal lines by masking on a panel that will go behind the swatch. Then added embossed candles which were made using an embossing folder (from Darice) and embellished with foam stickers.

The challenges are
