Ok, so I promised you all my 2 color challenge cards today. The first one I made is cute, but I LOVEY the second one!!
For this first one, I water colored the little giraffe with barely banana first, then added some marigold morning to his spots. I stamped the little oval (punched rubber with my small oval punch) with creamy caramel stamped off a couple of times first. Of course I also masked him, but it honestly doesn't look like I did...oh well!
I had him mostly put together but couldn't figure out where to put the sentiment or how to add the caramel...and then decided I could combine the two, and that's how the layout was born.
For this second card, since I had had winobella for a week and she still hadn't touched ink, I was feeling a little bad! I knew I wanted to paper piece her dress, and wanted a paper with the banana color...which is why I chose the Sarah DSP. And of course with red as one of the colors she had to be drinking a nice Zin. I miss Zin soooooo much!!! Eventually I'll get some again. Darn that my favorite grape has to be a new world one!
Oh yeah...and don't you LOVE her pearls?? I found those at Pipoos! Gotta get back there soon! The sentiment was stamped with my new Karen Foster snap stamps...THANKS Michelle! Today I'll have to make Mom a Bday card with my new Basic Grey paper! Yum!!!
