CASology Challenge #236 - Romance; Tag You're It Challenge #65

Hi everyone ~ A quick post to share a few cards for two really fun challenges:


Since this week's cue card at CASology is 'Romance', I thought I would use a new to me set from PTI ~


I tried to create an ombre effect when I stamped the swans, but it's subtle and doesn't show up very well on screen. I used my Clarity brushes on the background and added clear EP to the sentiment for some shine. 

********************


When I saw Lisa's adorable tag at the Tag You're It Challenge, I couldn't resist playing along with another new MFT set ~


I colored the bears with Copic markers and added the hearts, bow and a sentiment from Honey Bee Stamps.
That's it for me...Thanks so much for stopping by,

Two wonderful designs, Barb. The swans are so sweet, and so is the soft inking in the background. And your bear tag is ADORABLE. :) xx

Gorgeous Swans - they are truly romantic, aren't they? You should see how they share the care of their little ones, too. But can we talk about the bears? Lisa's little character is asking for a hug, and your two have completed the task ... just adorable - and the gingham ribbon takes it over the top cute! excuse me while I go in for the close-up... xx

Your swan card is just so pretty, Barb. The ombre shading is perfect for these swans. And your bears are just too cute!

The swans are lovely, Barb. We have a pair or two that swim on the river near here. I saw them just the other day. The little bears are a great take on Lisa's tag.
