Just Add Ink #228 - Colour Challenge

Hello again!
I'm back today with the new challenge over at Just Add Ink, which is a gorgeous colour combination using some of the new Stampin' Up! colours. But remember, if you don't have these exact ink pads you can use a similar colour.


Here is the card I made. It looks quite clean and simple, but it took me a few failed attempts and 3 days to get it done! I don't even know why but I just couldn't get the look I was going for and was having trouble colouring the image to my satisfaction.



Supplies: 
Stamps: Flowers by Paper Smooches, sentiment by My Favorite Things
Cardstock: Stampin' Up!
Other: Sequins by Doodlebug, Copic Markers, Wink of Stella Pen, stitching.

I covered the little chipboard word 'hello' with the coordinating paper from my card, then covered it with crystal effects.

Stamp: My Favorite Things
Paper: Maja Design Patterned Paper, Stampin' Up! Whisper White card stock

Retro Sketches #125

I loved the fun sketch over at Retro Sketches this week and made a fun little card so I could play along.


Here is my card, using some of my new stencils and dies from My Favorite Things. I cut the light bulb from vellum and coloured over it with a yellow Copic marker. I then added some Wink of Stella pen to the rays to make the sparkle a little, but it's really hard to see in the photos.



Supplies:
Stamps: My Favorite Things
Die-namics and stencil: My Favorite THings
Other: Wink of Stella Pen, Distress Ink refill by Ranger.
