I made two cards. Challenged as I am when it comes to coloring, I went B/W on the first one.


Only added Glossy Accents to her shades and some pink lips. I think it works well with the doodled frame. For some pizazz I added a sentiment die cut from stamped vellum and the secondary sentiment from the set. And that smidgen of Freckled Fawn thin washi? I think it's so cool ;)

TIP: Make a dot in the corners of your card before doodling a frame. Gives you a starting point and destination for your eye/pen when you draw the lines.

More B/W on the second one, but I added some paper piecing with PP from Basic Grey's PBJ. And a heat embossed sentiment and two black gems.


Remember to comment on all the stops to increase your chances of winning stamp sets. Good luck.

  18. That is just fabulous, both of them. At quick look I didn't realize the letters on stamped vellum on first one. Just enough colours to make it interesting and inspiring. And the second one makes a point BIG time.
    Great cards.
