Few more challenges...

Hello everyone, I am back with two more cards :) My first card is inspired by the sketch at CAS colors & sketches #48 , the colors at Runway Inspired Challenge #46 - L.A.M.B. and by maple leaf in the Moxie Fab World's Tuesday Trigger- Entralled in Fall. Also submitting this to Seize the Birthday - Anything Goes challenge :)
To make this card. I cut out the largest circle from Sizzix die and score it vertically at a 3/4 of the circle. On the 3/4 portion, I hand drew the sunburst kind of lines and cut them out. This was then stuck on the card stock. The maple leaf (from Inkadinkadoo mini stamp) is stamped on another white card stock, fuzzy cut and inked (Memento dew drop dye inks). It is then stuck on the card base with foam dots. Finally, I made a few dots with sharpie grey marker and added glossy accents. Sentiment was stamped (from Paper Sweeties - you make me smile set) using Archival black ink.


My second card is inspired by the Muse challenge #40, this week the Muse is Darnell and I had to play along. She is such a sweet heart and making a card inspired by her card is my acknowledgment to all the love she shares with me by leaving all those sweet comments on my blog :) I used the colors from Color Q #211 and will also submit this to Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Halloween or Halloween colors.
To make this card, I did some masking and inking (using Memento Dew drop dye inks) to create this wavy panel. I stamped and fuzzy cut the butterfly and stuck it on the panel with a hand drew butterfly trail. The focal image was made by stamping leaves (from Studio G wood mounted leaf stamp), flowers (from Studio G -iClear mini set) and mini flower (from Martha Stewart - Doilies set). Sentiment (from Paper sweeties set).

Thank you for stopping by and leaving me a comment :)

  9. First of all, Dee, thank you so much for the compliments and thank you for joining in the MUSE challenge this week and doing such a tremendous job of CASEing my card! I love it!! Secondly, your first card is genius for all those challenges! I could never come up with something to meld all of those and you make it look so easy!! Hugs, Darnell

    (P.S. Would you please change your profile page "About Me" where it says occupation? You have "aspiring to be an artist." It clearly should just state "artist!")

  28. Once again, I am so impressed with how you combined all of those challenges for your first card! Brilliant design and the color combo is 'spot-on'...LOVE how you shaded the leaf, too! Your 2nd card is absolutely gorgeous! Such a wonderful interpretation of Darnell's Muse Card and your curved border is stunning!

    I also want to say that I agree with Darnell ~ Your profile should read 'Artist'...your eye for color and design is amazing, and your execution is that of a "True Artist"!!!
