I have two cards to share today, inspired by this week's challenge at CASology, the current challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Flickr Group, and this week's challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog.
Here is my first card:
For the theme 'Light', I used an older stamp set by Technique Tuesday and colored this little guy to look as if he's on stage. I also included the shadow from Paper Smooches and added the sentiment and flower from Mama Elephant.
For my 2nd card, I realized that I didn't have any SSS products to create a card for a new baby, a new home, a new job, or a new marriage (time to shop - lol), so I went with the theme of 'new' year!
I used selective inking on a SSS sentiment set using Hero Arts Soft Granite, Studio Calico Clean Slate and Versafine Onyx Black inks. I wanted an ombre' effect on the glasses, so I used two shades of inks, inlaid the first die cut and stacked three more layers to add dimension. Lastly, I used a tone-on-tone diagonal pattern with a stencil for the border.
Well, that's it for me...thanks so much for stopping by ~
