Yesterday was the Featured Stamper challenge on Splitcoast Stampers and I found several cards in the gallery that I loved. When I saw what Heather's challenge on the Squigglefly Blog was this week, I thought it was the perfect combination of challenges!
Heather's challenge is Writer's Cramp - Use chalk (any kind), pencil, ball point pen, highlighter or crayons on your project or use a school themed image or sentiment on your project. I thought it was the best thing to combine with a couple of cards in the gallery and use colored pencils on kraft card stock - one of my favorite combinations!
The first card from the featured stamper's gallery I chose is THIS ONE and here is my card
The image I used is Retro Tulips by Jane Beljo. I used colored pencils to color and sponged some Real Red and Only Orange ink around the edge of the kraft card stock. Then I used a white gel pen on parts of the tulips. The sentiment is one I printed on my computer. I'm happy to share it with you all
I have another card to share with you! this is another one I did from the Featured Stamper's gallery. The card I picked was THIS ONE, and here is my card
My image is one of the flowers from Flowers Set by Lynne Stansbery. If you are ever at a loss for an image, this flower set is perfect! It's got four different flowers in it, and flowers are great for birthday cards, anniversary cards, congratulations cards, thank you cards, sympathy cards, and just plain old "I'm thinking of you" cards!
Again, I printed this image on to kraft card stock and used colored pencils to color with. I was intrigued by the white leaves on the card I was CASING, so I stuck with that idea on my card also. the sentiment was computer generated, and again I'll share it with you!
I really hope you'll try to play along in the Squigglefly blog challenge this week. It's the last week to get something extra added to my blog candy if you happen to be the lucky winner!
oh by the way, if you're wondering what all the acronyms in my title are - the FS is Featured Stamper, the SFC is Squiggle Fly Challenge, and the FB is Free Bee! Have a wonderful day, and thanks for looking!
