A few challenges from yesterday!

This card was made with the sketch from Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge. I also incorporated the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge to use pearls on your card. This was easy. I went with my Flourishes image because I love the coffee cups and rarely have enough time to use them! To soften the pink in the saucer, I painted Angel Wings Shimmerz over the pink. I picked this fun dp from the SEI Mimosa collection because of the pearlized quality of some of the dots. It's hard to see in the photo, but you can see where the Cocoa colored ink didn't emboss so well over the pearlized paper.

This next card is for the Hero Arts challenge for this week titled "color it". Jennifer McGuire is challenging all takers to color an image on their card, any way they want! I did some water coloring with my aquapainter and ink that I smooshed into the lid of my stamp pads. The really nice thing about the stamps I used was that the shading was already shown on the image sticker:)
This last card was super easy! I used a card base, rub-ons, ribbon and a corner rounder. No joke! Aren't these rub-ons fabulous??? I got them from Mandy at Limelight Papercrafts and they are the Earth Love rub-ons from Cosmo Cricket. I had to break into them right away and so I made another card for the Autumn CAS design team sketch challenge.
