StampTV sketch Challenge: Heart Balloons & Baja Blooms


STVSC4 birthday balloons

I made this card to send to Asela for her birthday, using her set, Warm & Fuzzy-it was for Kurtis’ sketch from last week (I ended up liking the sketch so much since it was clean & simple it was easy to make 3 cards using it!  I love these little heart balloons which were colored with peerless watercolors.

STVSC5 flowers

Here is a card I made this evening using Jessica’s sketch {STVSC5} using Melanie’s A Year of Flowers.  Since I stamped & colored on kraft cardstock with my bleach technique the other day, I had in my mind to do it again {not the bleach though}.  I almost made it with this week’s SCS color challenge but it would have involved adding Pretty in Pink cardstock and it just looked wrong to me.  I saw a lot of pretty cards using it but it just wasn’t going to work with my idea.  I used my coluzzle to cut the circle around my blooms.  They are colored with Baja Breeze ink and white highlights were made using a white prismacolor pencil.  I really like how they turned out!  I thought the finishing touch of the pearl flower centers was just what my card needed.  I love this card and a greeting will go inside, sometimes I just need my image to take center stage on the front and it’s o.k.
