Hello, Beautiful!

Hi there,
Just a quick post from me today to share 2 cards I created for a few challenges ~
The first card is for the current SSS Flickr Challenge and the theme is 'Sparkle & Shine'. 


I recently bought this Artsy Flower Parts stamp set, and I love the cute flowers and leaves. I colored them with Copics and added sparkle with a little bit of clear WOS and a few sparkly sequins from an old SSS card kit. The sentiment is from their Summer Garden stamp set.

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

My next card is for 2 challenges, both for the theme 'Stencil': CAS on Sunday Challenge and for the
AAA Cards Challenge - CAS Game


This Altenew Halftone Stencil is my new favorite...I placed it on an angle and inked it with Grout Gray, then stamped and die cut the branch, bird, and butterfly. I colored everything with Copic markers and used vellum for the sentiment. I also added a few sparkly sequins and the orange enamel dot, which is one of my DIY projects with Perler Beads...and that was it!





Thanks so much for stopping by,

Sweet cards, Barb! I loved the first one when I saw it on Flickr & I've been wanting to enter one of the stencil challenges, but can't seem to make anything. Your card used that one perfectly!
