Two For Tuesday!




Good Morning Everyone,

I guess that you could say that I am on a roll today, I finished two cards last night and it feels great to be on a roll again.
I was inspired by The Pink Elephants sketch challenge and incorporated a few other challenges onto my card as well.



My image is the adorable Emma Puddle Jumper and her pal "Mr. Bunny". I applied Flower Soft on the bunny's tail to make it pop but I'm not crazy about the results. I think the area was too small for the cotton tail effect. For the set of three challenge, I have three set of papers and two sets of felt flowers. (furry effect) I also used ribbon and my image is colored in with Copic Markers and the colors are a spring/Easter type combo.



card details....
image..Claudia and Company Emma Puddle Jumper, card stocks Bazzill and Papertrey Ink, design paper TPC Studio (Bunny Hop), Inks..Memento Tuxedo Black and Copic Markers, Embellishments felt flowers, half pearls, ribbon, Nesties lg. circle and scallop dies, Stickles, Flower Soft (Polar White) and MS scalloped border punch. Background was airbrushed


The Pink Elephant....Sketch

Pile It On........Furry Friends

Totally Gorjuss.........Ribbon

Incy Wincy Designs......Easter or Spring





For my second card, I used another favorite stamp of mine.... The Pixie Cottage's Sweet Molly for the following challenges.

Raise The Bar.......Fruit

Cupcake Craft Challenge.....Food or Drink

Pixie Dust Studio.......The Power of 3's

Flutter By Wednesday's.....Use the color green or shamrocks

Little Red Wagon....Copic Markers



I brought this yummy DP a year ago and made myself use it for the food and fruit challenges. The design paper is from DCWV Sweet paper pack and to me the papers are so cute... you almost hate to use them. Molly is colored in with Copic Markers and the sentiment is from Magnolia. Other embellishments are Prima Flowers, Liquid Pearls, Stickles and EK Success border punch.

Thanks for all of your lovely comments, I appreciate you words of kindness. I'm feeling better and a dose of sunshine wouldn't hurt either:) Take care and have a great day!

Risa:)

Beautiful work!
