Muse Card Challenge; Happy Little Stampers; Time Out; SSS Wednesday Challenge

Hi there blog friends ~
I have two cards to share for four challenges. The incredibly talented and my super fun team mate/blog friend, Carol Mayne created a fabulous card for us for this week's challenge at Muse:




I was inspired by Carol's feathers and card design...Here is my card:




I inked up my PTI feather stamp and die cut it to place above the the Positive Strokes in rainbow order from Paper Smooches. Then, I created the camouflage die cut using SSS Be stamp and die set, used my MFT stitched mat for the border, and mounted everything on a black card base.
Since I used a rainbow of colors, I would like to submit this card to SSS Wednesday Challenge for the theme 'Make it Colorful'!

*****

My 2nd card is for 2 challenges: Happy Little Stampers September CAS Challenge 'Coloring', and the current Time Out Challenge 'Make Your Mark'. Here is my card:





I recently bought this stamp set from Winnie & Walter, and I couldn't wait to ink it up and color it with my Copics. I added the embossed sentiment using my favorite EP...Liquid Platinum. I added a touch of Wink of Stella to the blooms, a few white dots on the small blooms and black dots on the center of the daisy. I then rounded two opposite corners for interest and mounted it on to a PTI Soft Stone card base. And, as my sweet friend Betty always says...Done and Dusted :)






While perusing the Winnie & Walter Blog, I just discovered that they would like us to link up our creations  in their 'Join In to Win' section of the blog (I'm a late bloomer, what can I say), so I've added my card there as well ~

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I really appreciate it, and I always enjoy reading your lovely comments...Thank you! Have a safe and happy Labor Day weekend ~

Done - and done well, Barb. Using the strokes was a great way to imitate the feathers for Muse. The coloring on your flowers is fabulous and Liquid Platinum is my favorite ep, too.

Cheering and applauding both your cards, Barb! Your second, with the stunning blooms, is a knockout. Your first: oh my! Love x love your feather with the warm-colours brushstrokes and inlaid Be! I'm thrilled you drew inspiration from my card and created an incredibly delightful one of your own, infused with your special touches! Thank you for joining the Muse challenge!

Two fantastic cards, Barb. I especially love the way you have masked and colored those W&W flowers. I wish I would think of things like that. Thanks so much for playing along at Time Out.
