Two For Featured Stamper Challenge

Hi everyone!  Well, I had a lovely five whole days off work for Thanksgiving and today is back to the work routine.  I spent my days off making cards, playing with the dogs, and even did a little Christmas shopping!

Yesterday was the Featured Stamper challenge at Splitcoast Stampers and I loved Allison's gallery.  In fact I found two cards to CASE!  The first card I CASED is THIS ONE.   The image I used is one drawn by Inger Harding called Old Fashioned Skates.

I colored the image with copic markers and hand wrote the sentiment on the tag.

The second card I chose to CASE is THIS ONE.  I used the Orchids image by Deena Perreault.  The sentiment is also one from Squigglefly - one I use all the time - called Birthday Wishes by Jess Holland.  

I changed the color of the image to brown before printing it directly onto the designer paper.  I used colored pencils to color the image.  I sponged all of the edges with Creamy Caramel ink.

There is a new challenge on the Squigglefly blog today!  If you're up for a challenge why not play along?
