Bloggers Challenge #47



WOW...It's week 47 of the Bloggers Challenge. What started out as a fun little challenge between Sheryl and myself has really grown into a great talented group of challenge players....This weeks challenge was to use this sketch (the one with the dog) as a basis for creating your card.

I had some extra time to play - so I created two cards....








Details:
Stamps - Bloomin' Beautiful, Holidays and Wishes
Card Stock - Groovy Guava, Watercolor
Ink- Versamark, Chocolate Chip, Groovy Guava, Soft Sky, Wild Wasabi
Other - Tool Kit, Horizontal Slot Punch, Clear EP, Aquapainter, Afternoon Tea DSP, Chocolate Chip Twill, Hodgepodge Hardware.




For this card I used the Magic Pattern Technique (TJNL) coloring my images with watercolor crayons.

Stamps - Starving Artistamps - Ornate Tooled Leather , Iris
Ink - Black, Versamark
Card Stock - Bashful Blue, Black, Celery, Rose Red, White
Other - Hodgepodge Hardware, Black Grosgrain, Tool Kit, WC Crayons, Heat Gun, Clear EP

If you'd like to play along with this weeks challenge, simply upload your artwork to your blog and leave a link on this post, or if loading to SCS use keyword BC47.

Have a great weekend!

Both cards are wonderful, Lisa. I especially love the first one (since I have that set!) Great job with the layout!

How pretty these both are! Just lovely!! Every card I've seen with Bloomin' Beautiful has been just that....beautiful! And this one is no exception. Of course, your other addition is fabulous as well. This was a fun challenge.

I love them both, miss Lisa, but the Bloomin' one is my fave since that is my fave stamp set this season! You do such pretty work!

Both cards are just beautiful! You know I love the flowers in the vase--each card you make with it is weakening my resolve to NOT buy it!
It's been a fun 47 weeks and look forward to the next 47 (and more)!!!!

Both are gorgeous. Great details on the SU card, and, of course, the magic pattern is beautifully executed.

Lovely cards Lisa, It's hard to pick a favorite this week as they are both very appealing. I think that the technique you used on your 2nd card is interesting and will need to check that out.

Lisa Bohler said...

Both cards turned out lovely, Lisa!!! I like you used DSP as an accent and that you used your slot punch to attach the ribbon!

Chrissy D said...
