Hi Everyone! Because of everything going on both here on my blog and elsewhere over the weekend I didn't post my cards for days 4 - 7 so as promised I am back now to share with you the cards I have made over the past few days playing along with the 31 Day Card Challenge.
Day 5 - Color Aqua
I only had one piece of Aqua paper in my stash so this is what I came up with playing along also with the latest Sketch Challenge at Sketches by Carly.
The Butterflies Stamp is from the Dream Big Itty Bitty Stamp by Unity. I have stamped in Tempting Turquoise Ink and used a similar color in my Gelato Pens to ink/smooch around the edges.
Day 6 - Technique - Paper Piecing
For this Card I am also playing along with the latest Color Combination Challenge of Tangerine Tango and Old Olive from Dynamic Duos and the Sketchbook Saturday Sketch.
For this card I am using up some of my old Stampin' Up! Papers in the two required colors. The Pear Stamp and Sentiment are both from one of my Unity Stamp Company KOTM's. A polka dot flower and some gem stones to finish.
Day 7 - Technique - Embossing
For this Card I started with Sketch #69 from the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge and decided to have a bit more of a play with my new Gelatos.
I clear embossed my butterfly and colored over it with a selection of Gelatos. These same Gelatos were then used to create the dry embossed watercolor look background which my cut out butterfly was mounted to. I mounted this on my card following the sketch and adding some rhinestones and dew drops to finish.
I am also entering this card into the Stamp Man October Butterflies, Birds and Bees Challenge.
Day 8 - Technique - Spotlight
This is one technique I haven't tried before, I have seen it around, so it was fun to try this one. I have used one of the ladies from the Darkroom Door Stamp Set Just My Style and colored the spotlight in with my Tria Markers. I have used an Echo Park Paper and SU Cardstock and Ribbon.
I will be back tomorrow with Day 9 and 10's Cards, until then happy stamping!
