Weekend Challenges

Hello Everyone!
I have two cards to share with you tonight and both were made for the "Lovefest" going on at Splitcoaststampers.  Each of 10 days is devoted to a member company at SCS.  My first card is for Sweet N Sassy stamps.

I inked up a brand new stamp for this challenge.  This is one of those cards that keeps evolving and evolving and evolving!  It is really nothing like what it started out to be, but I love how it turned out.  I started by stamping the image in Stazon on watercolor paper and coloring it with an aquapainter and reinkers.
Next, I tried the out of the box technique, and totally botched it!  I attempted several repairs, but ended up fussy cutting out the image.  My dp strip initially had a scalloped edge on it, but it was too much so it ended up with a simple mat.  I cut a Spellbinder oval, embossed the edge and sponged with Soft Sky ink while it was still in the die.  The branch is popped up on dimensionals.

The next card is for the opening day of the "Lovefest"-

We were to add a little "LOVE" to our cards.  Mine is L-Lavender O-Oval V-Venetian Motif SB die E-Embossing
This is another image just seeing ink.  It is from Our Craft Lounge.  I stamped the image in Momento Black and then colored with Prismacolor pencils.  I am still learning coloring.  I find colored pencils difficult, so I started out small!  The bow was made with my Becca's Bow Maker-I love that thing!  I can finally put a pretty bow on my cards!

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a blessed weekend!
