Hello Everyone and welcome to a new week of challenges here at Speedy the Cat's Friends http://marksfinestpapers.blogspot.com challenge. This weeks challenge was suggested by Carol in which she wants us to made a card with Things that have wings.
Again this week I struggled with this card. Since I am new to the design team I am limited in the stamp sets that I can use and I didn't have too many that had creatures with wings. I made two cards this week since I couldn't decide which card I liked and wanted to showcase.
My first card is using Mark's Finest Papers http://www.marksfinestpapers.com September release Autumn Glory. First I took my Mark's Finest Papers Snow Storm cardstock and embossed it with my Cuttlebug scrollwork embossing folder. Then I took my chalk and went over the raised parts if the embossing. Once this was done I stamped my image and sentiment in the middle of the frame. Then I colored my image using chalks and my blender pen along with using Basic Black and Old Olive ink pads. I chose to use Old Olive cardstock for the base of my card and before I mounted my image to the card I added some brown lacy ribbon and then mounted the image to the card.
For my second card I used an oldie but a goodie from this summer Mark's Finest Papers Planted With Love stamp set. I have seen so many cards made with this stamp set that I really liked so I thought I would make this a CAS (clean and simple) card. I chose Mark's Finest Papers Snow Storm cardstock as my only cardstock for this card. I stamped my images and sentiment with Basic Black and colored the birds beaks with Copic Marker Y19. To add a little color I added red craft cord to finish off the card.
I hope you enjoyed my cards. Thanks for stopping and commenting. I hope to see you visit again and become a follower. Have a blessed day.
