Happy Monday! I say 3 more Splitcoast World Card Making Day Challenges, but I got lucky and got 3 challenges done on 2 cards, and I didn't even know it! The card above I did for the World Card Makig Day Featured Stamper Challenge which was Sherry, check out her great gallery! I copied this card, changing the colors and the dry embossing to patterned paper.
When I finished and went back to read some more of the challenges, I saw this card would work for the Lemon Lime Twist Challenge too! You had to use lime green, lemon with a twist of orange, dark gray, black, and a neutral. Lucky me! The finished size is a 4 1/4" square, I became addicted to those over the weekend, they just seem more quick and easy somehow!
The following card was for the Autumn's Glory Inspiration Challenge, which I found the hardest. It was the fall cover of the Cold Water Creek magazine. I'm not a "leafy" person, so I improvised and came up with this. I kind of stole the from myself from this card. For the stamped flowers from the Upsy Daisy set, (I forget the name of the technique), but you color the image with your markers, then spritz it lightly with water, so the image kind of runs and gives you a Monet effect.
Well, I'm running a weeee bit late this morning, so I have to dash. I'll come back later and add the recipes. Thanks so much for stopping by, I really do appreciate it! Have a super day!
