3 patterned paper, 2 buttons, 1 punch & a ribbon …

This is the challenge at The Pink Elephant this week.

I just didn’t realize how difficult it is to make a card with that many elements without it looking like a gaudy and busy mess. But thanks for pushing me beyond my comfort zone … here is my 1st card with so many things squeezed into a tiny little space.

Pumpkin image is from Obsession Impression Peeking Pumpkin. I colored the image using water color pencils. Tag is from Quickutz & a circle punch cut into half.

They made me do it …

It’s too early for Christmas cards but those gals at The Pink Elephant made me do it. They have a recipe challenge – “Favorite Color Combo, Polka Dots and Crinkle Ribbon”. So here is my favorite color combo with polka dots and crinkle ribbon Christmas card.

The little Dolly stamp is from Impression Obsession and colored using Derwent Watercolor Pencils. Have a fun day, even if it’s not Christmas!

Impression Obsession Challenge …

9 May

Good morning everyone!
 

The Impression Obsession pick your Favorite IO Image will be ending in 2 days (May 11, 2011). Be sure to visit their website to view the Design team’s cards as well as cards that customers submit for the challenge. 
I would like to share the card I submitted to the challenge. 

Most of the time, I just buy the stamps that catch my eye. Most of the time, they end up being used once and back to the garage sale table. This Impression Obsession stamp “gift of love” is one of the most versatile ones that I use over and over again for many different occasions. It is colored with Derwent watercolor pencils. I also use part of a flourish from Autumn Leaves for background.

Have a great day and wish me luck in the challenge.
