Sarah Kay and Penny Black challenge cards

I'm using my new Sarah Kay Rosalie's bicycle again today for the new Sara Kay challenge blog. Lilac has to be used on the card. Looks like this is going to be a one week wonder for me as I only have one Sarah Kay stamp!!!!

The image was stamped with versafine onyx black onto a rectangle cut out and embossed with nestabilities then coloured with prismacolor pencils, sansodor/oms and a paper stump. I cut a scalloped rectangle from lilac Bazzil card and matted the image with this. The card blank has been embossed with a cuttlebug tiny bubbles folder and swiped over with some Pepples pearlescent chalk to which I added a lilac satin ribbon. The sentiment was stamped in Tim Holtz milled lavender ink with three gems placed beside it to finish.


The second card today is for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge where brads and buttons have to be used on the card.

The bunny image was coloured with prismacolor pencils, Sansodor/oms and a paper stump, cut out with a rectangle scalloped nestability and mounted on pale pink bazzil bling. I cut three strips of Making Memories Garden Party Dots double sided paper and placed them on the background. The image layer was mounted on dimension tape with a brad in the flower centre and placed over the papers on the card blank. The buttons element was added to the pale green organza ribbon.

Back later,
Chris
