some things from yesterday

This card was done for Flexie's Card sketch challenge in the sunroom yesterday morning, the dots and Daisy's was stamped in barely banana, the petals were colored with so saffron then there is copper stickles glitter glue in the centers. this is on GP110 cardstock and then the Sisters ( Catslife Press) are stamped with Cognac Hybrid pallet ink on Paper trey white, there is some vintage photo distress ink on the edges of this and the sentiment ( hero arts ) which is stamped with really rust dye ink. the base cardstock is also really rust ink. I'm thinking i may tinker with this a bit and add a ribbon along the left side. its a little naked looking to me. but, i mostly like the colors. there is tea dye distress stippled across every white cardstock on this one.
this was done for Deloris shadow stamps challenge. the bonus to it was if you used only Hero Arts stamps you got an extra ticket for doing it... the HA row of Jubilee dots is stamped in memories dye ink soft sage on PaperTrey white cardstock, the Dec 25th, HO HO HO, and love from all of us are stamped with Tombow markers # 845 & # 192. the green ribbon was salvaged from a christmas package to me last year so (unknown) the Real red (SU) cardstock had been spray painted with Krylon gold webbing spray and there is krylon gold paint pen on the edges of the cardstock also. after i went along the edges randomly with an Eucalyptus Stickles glitter glue. remember most the challenges posted for SOF at two peas you have all week to work on them and the ones with RAKS are being drawn next saturday.
I offered to do a misc. rak for SOF this time around since i was doing some tutorials for the sunroom and so my own challenge on the board there is SOF time lapse. ( take mug shots of your space this week as you wreck or clean your room or even get one of your self in there) and add them to the thread in the stamp gallery. its possible to edit your own posts so, if you put in one photo now you can add another in a day or two by changing the number on how many photos part during the edit, after you change the number then hit update and more uploading boxes will appear at the bottom of the page.
this was just for me at the end of what felt like the LONGEST day. :) I had this stamp out for one of the wish rak's i did and i had done them in some fallish colors for fun, this particular one i colored all the petals with an Gelly roll gold pen. was trying for an angle shot to catch the bling bling. the orange is not quite so bright in real life.
this one the colors are more realistic. the sentiment is stamped with Versafine ink ( cant remember the color name but, its kinda an olive limeish green) the dots and Daisy's background is stamped with Cognac Palette hybrid ink on Pumpkin Pie cardstock, the white cardstock is from Paper Trey and the green textured card base is bazzill. the sentiments from A Muse Artstamps and punched with the (blue size) scalloped oval then i did an Pink scallop oval from the green club scrap paper i have but it was too much trim to suit me so i took some scissors and trimmed it down to about 1/16 of an inch i guess.the flowers growing and the sentiment are up on pop dots and the ribbon (trim) is from May Arts.
