Got 2 Cards to Share With You

Hello everyone!! How are y'all doing? Hope everything's in good shape. I have two cards to share with you today. These 2 cards are both my takes for SCS challenges. The first card is for the Featured Stamper challenge. Ebethneu was the Featured Stamper and if you will visit her gallery, you can see that she really makes gorgeous cards. I chose to CASE her Flower Picnic card (this is my first time to CASE someone else's card..LOL!).

I used Basic Grey paper (fr Sugared pad) for my background and punched the right side with my Fiskars Lace border punch (since I can't have Martha Stewart Doily Lace punch for now, this one looks good also). As you can notice, this is my first card where I used an oval shape Nesties. Yes, got my new set of Oval Nesties (standard and scalloped) from Bizzy Becs. I finished off this card by layering 3 Prima Flowers with a brad and putting these itty bitty Rose adhesive pearls from Kaisercraft.
The next card is for the SC204 sketch challenge. The sketch is so nice that I didn't wait for another day to make a card patterned from it.

I gotta tell yah something. Would you believe that I coloured this image using just ordinary coloured pencils? Yep! These pencils were giveaways for my kids (with a mini colouring booklet) from Bunnings Warehouse! ;-) I was trying to experiment with my blending stumps but couldn't found any colouring pencils that aren't water-based (I only have watercolour pencils and Copic markers). Since watercolour pencils will not work with baby oil (to be used with my stumps), I decided to try these little pencils instead. And I was surprised with the result! (How about you?) She looked like she was coloured with watercolour pencils!

Here's a closer look at her..

I guess I'll start using these ordinary pencils since they somehow work well with baby oil and the SU! Whisper White cs. Money saving tips for all of us hey! I used my Fiskars Lace border punch again and I think I'm getting addicted to it LOL! It really adds a nice touch to the card, doesn't it?

Off to make some finishing touches on another card.

May our good Lord bless and keep us always. Hugs to all!!
