It's a Three Challenge Day!


This card is for the Embellish Magazine challenge, and also the SCS Sketch challenge for today.
  • Paper: Basic Grey Archaic; SU Cameo Coral, Mellow Moss, Whisper White, and Chocolate Chip
  • Stamps: Wise Owl (PTI), CHF background
  • Ink: Chocolate Chip, Memento Tuxedo Black
  • Accessories: Chocolate Brads, 7/8" Chocolate Organdy, Nestabilities, Sponge, Prismacolor Pencils & Gamsol
This card is for The Cat's Pajamas challenge this week. I used some Cuttlebug dies to cut the leaves out of a soda pop bottle! It was hard to photograph, and in person it's even more stunning.
  • Paper: SU Basic Black, Basic Grey Indian Summer
  • Stamps: PTI Mixed Messages
  • Ink: Basic Black
  • Accessories: Gold Cord, Gold Brad, Cuttlebug Dies, Soda Bottle
I need a thank-you card for our local firefighters who gave a tour of the firehouse to our Wolf Cub Scouts. Of course, since they are men, I didn't want to give them something feminine. I got this Firefighter Riley a while ago in anticipation of this event. It's hard to photograph the details....I added Crystal Effects to the water, and to simulate the reflective stripes on the uniform, I colored them first with Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol, then with a Sakura Stardust pen. It looks soooo cool in person!
  • Paper: East Coast Prep, Real Red, Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White (all SU)
  • Stamps: Riley (Hanna Stamps), Much Appreciated (SU)
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, SU Tempting Turquoise
  • Accessoried: Fire Engine Buttons, Prismacolor Pencils & Gamsol, 1/2" Circle Punch, Sakura Stardust Pen, Crystal Effects, Nestabilities
