Friday Sketchers #11 and Our Creative Corner's Dry Embossing Challenge






Happy Monday everyone and I hope your weekend was a nice one:)

I've been super busy coloring the images that were sent to me by Nicola. I wasn't able to use my Copic Markers so I had to play with my Prismacolor Pencils instead. Yes....my poor neglected limited supply of Prismacolor Pencils were screaming for attention and I gave it to them! lol (I desperately need to invest in a larger color selection)

I guess I felt pretty energetic today because I completed two cards! Yeah for me!!!
I made these cards for Friday Sketchers #11 sketch challenge and for Our Creative Corner card Challenge. I found Our Creative Corner's blog by browsing different blogs and decided to give their challenge a try. Here is my take on the sketch provided by Friday Sketchers DT and my take on the embossing theme challenge from Our Creative Corner.

Details......
Magnolia images a gift, sentiment Su's Circle of friendship set, the butterfly is from Pink Cat Studio, c/s Papertrey Ink and Bazzill, inks Prismacolor Pencils & OMS and lavender and ocean blue chalk inks, Spellbinders oval and circle templates, ribbon Really Resonable Ribbon, flowers Myra Road, Dimensionals, Signo White gel pen, extra fine glitter, paper pierce tool, Dew Drops and pearls. I also embellished the ribbon with a charm and silver cord.

Have a great day and thank you for stopping by:)

Hi Malieta!! Great card...you must love to color, I enjoy it too! =)

I could never argue with anyone needing a bigger selection of colourfulness, but what you achieve with limitations absolutely blows my mind. Your colouring and details are such a joy to look at. That little wee butterfly, for instance, is WAY too cute to even exist! :0)

Smriti said...

Two cards in a day is by any standards definitely an achievement Risa!! Way to go :)

I need to get back to creating at least one :)
