Card Recognition

Sunday, January 6, 2013

true friends and more...


Welcome to another 365 Cards Super Sketchy Sunday.  I've used this week's Play Date Cafe colors as my color palette.  I tried my hand at Debby's technique (click here) for my something new for the Simon Says Challenge and the Hero Arts challenge and A Blog Named Hero challenges...  I think I have to keep working on it....  The stamp is also new...  I think you may see it again :)

Now go check out the rest of the 365 Cards DT and see what they've done with the sketch....
WendiRoseJenny, Annie and Janice     



And my bonus project for the day... I saw this photo on Pinterest and it called my name... so I thought I'd try the fun chalk art technique with these Unity stamps.  My new tweed HA background was perfect, so I added a piece of May Arts velvet corduroy and I'm in love....  and I posted it on my FB page and it sold within 5 minutes, now that is a sign of a great card :) 


And I was on a bit of a roll and made another card....



Cards Blog Challenge this month is to use these colors and they're giving away a great Paper Smooches prize.  So I thought I'd play along, especially since the Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge this week is "Anything Goes."
