Last Minute Cards

I don't know where the time goes these days. But I have two cards today for challenges that are about to close. One of these days I won't be always working at the last minute. LOL! Both of these cards are CAS and both are made with recycled materials. First up is the progressive challenge at The Outlawz.

This image is called Fifi from Ppinkydollsart. I colored her with Copics and die cut the image with Spellbinder's Circles and inked with Picked Raspberry distress ink.. Just love her ig eyes. The background paper is actually a bunch of scraps that I had left over and glued together to make a background paper. I added a sentiment from Hero Arts Birthday sentiments set and die cut with Spellbinders Conversation Bubbles 4 and popped it up from the card base. I used the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches.

I am entering these challenges:
My second card is for the I {heart} sketches with a twist challenge #153. This week I only used the twist: to fussy cut the image. 



The image is Apple Blossom Birds at From the Heart Stamps. I colored the image twice with Copic Markers and fussy cut the entire image for one and just the flowers for the second. They I popped up the flowers as a decoupage effect. The background paper is left over wall paper from a Girl Scout project. It looks very much like it's water colored. For this card I used the sketch at Less Is More.


I am entering these challenges:
Thanks for stopping by today Have a wonderful week!
