Wednesday Sketch Challenge

This week's  Sketch Challenge at The Outlawz is a fun one to work with and my DT Sisters created some awesome inspiration with the sketch below:

For my card, I used a Penny Black stamp which I have had for awhile but was a little intimidated about coloring.  I must say that after I stamped it on Xpress It paper, I noticed that on the back of the packaging, there was an example in color.  Why had I not noticed before that  PB took my angst right away in how to color this gorgeous flower?  The glitz in the flowers is from Hero Arts, which I also had not used before.

I also have two cards to share which I created for the Hero Arts Scramble last Friday.  This Scramble was to create a one layer sympathy card.  For the first card, I attached the layer to a mat and it actually looks like there are two layers because of the way I masked the area where I sponged Distress Inks.  So, for the second card, I actually did the sponging on the card itself.  This was a real stretch for me to create two cards plus post them in 90 minutes....perhaps if I keep trying the Scrambles, I will be able to be quicker in my card making???  Well, I can only hope.....  The cards created for the challenge were wonderful and it amazes me that such beauties can be made in such a short time.

My last card is one which I created for a special SIL, who shares my love of tea and things tea related.  Here's to you, June, and may we go enjoy "teatime" very soon!

So, it has been a fun week of making cards, even if it took a week to get them posted!
