A pretty simple one, 10 years later i finally used the cameo coral ink pad. this is some stardream chiara (simmery pale green) cardstock. with some Prima flowers very easy. the tan textured cs is from Bazzill.
The sequins between the prima flowers and the brads are from a little assortment package i picked up in the wedding isle at walmart years ago. one of those packs has thousands of sequins in it. lotta bling for very little moola.
Did this one yesterday for the breeders we got our puppy from on tuesday. the puppy image is from one of the new SU sets in the little spring flyer book. (cant think of the set name right now) something fathers day ish i guess. Its colored with Prisma Pencils and then layered to some star dream chiara shimmery cardstocks. I bought a ream of the pink and green in Salem at the Paperzone in January to do spring cards with. the ribbon is May Arts. The Sentiment is from Hero Arts and I colored it with tombo markers before i stamped it then figured out it was mounted crooked. pulled it off the block and made it straight.
This flower bowl is from the other su set i got from the same booklet from my mil's party. its colored with prisma pencils. and evidently yesterday was the day to figure out i have lots of crooked sentiments. this one is from the SU set all holidays and i mounted it my self ( and it was really crooked too) so,pulled it off the block and made it straight, but the part on the card was just too crooked so, stamped it again on a scrap and cut around it and tried to make it straight then it really stuck out like a sore thumb so, i thought ok put some diamond glaze on it and make it look like a page pebble... kinda worked but, this photo was shot before the glue was dry so... not sure yet how it looks this morning, but I really liked how the flower colors looked and didn't want to scrap the whole thing. not sure yet it if this one will need reconfigured or not.
This one i colored with prisma markers. the colors are much more bold. went over the tops of the leaves and petals with some pencils for highlights. the edges of the panel have some creamy brown chalk in on them. The sentiments from Impress. yep it was crooked on the block too, pulled it off and re-did it on a scrap and punched it out and put in some pop-dots to cover the blooper. there's some cotton candy stickles in the scallops of the punchie too. the purple color is almost amethyst. and the pink mat is stardream. have some more cute puppy photos but they are in the desk top computer.

oh, I just ordered that bloomin' beautiful set and now I have ideas! I love how you colored the one that you re-did--so lovely!

I can't believe you've never used the coral before--it's one of my favorite pads and I really don't even like pink, LOL! I even had to buy a reinker after 5 years of using it, ha ha!

And the puppy one sure gives me ideas for the new HA clear set I just got so you are doubly inspirational today! Thank you, Thank you!

Stacy,

Your cards totally amaze me. You make every card gorgeous---even the simple looking ones.

I am surprised the ink pad hadn't dried out in 10 yrs!!!
