Critter Love and More

PE: ColourQ Courtier

Hello! It seems that I’ve been posting during weekends only these last few times.. 🙂 And I’ve got four cards this time!
Critter LoveI had made this first card for the previous CAS(E) This Sketch challenge but I was late in submitting this card, so I am just posting it here. Made this with Penny Black Every Which Way stamps, which I stamped using Memento Rich Cocoa and colored it using Brushed Corduroy, Walnut Stain, Festive Berries, Broken China, Forest Moss, Bundled Sage distress inks. The sentiment comes from Hero Arts All Occasion Messages stamped in Forest Moss.

Pinterest Inspired Challenge #1I made my second card for a new challenge – Pinterest Inspired challenge #1. I first colored a watercolor panel loosely and then used a lot of dies for the leaves and the flowers on it. After arranging and adhering them on the card base, I colored another panel grey and used it along with a piece of black card stock on top, with the sentiment embossed in white.

Pinterest Inspired challenge #1For my third and fourth cards are birthday and balloons themed. I got inspired from this card from Kristina Werner and this card from Kay Miller and this card from Freshly Noted

Wishing BalloonThe critters are from Penny Black Every Which Way, the hearts are from the same stamp set, stamped multiple times. I used Picked Raspberry, Scattered Straw, Iced Spruce distress inks and finally added outlines very lightly using color pencils. The sentiment comes from Hero Arts Its Your Day. Submitting this card to Colour Me Challenge #85

Colour Me Challenge #85For this card, I used stencils and also hand drew the balloons. After outlining them using a black pen, I colored them using Ripe Persimmon, Peacock Feathers, Scattered Straw, Iced Spruce distress inks. The twinkles in the background are from Just Rite Bokeh Time stamp set stamped in Iced Spruce. I finally added Glossy Accents over the balloons.
