Same Image, Same Layout, Two Cards

I love the IndigoBlu Elizabeth Bennett stamp so used it for the following two cards.  I am entering each one into a different challenge - I hope its ok that I have done them on the same post!

I am entering the first into the IndigoBlu challenge which is 'From The Heart'.  The card is for my Daughter so I hope it qualifies.  There is no greater love than for your children and every card I make for my Son and Daughter definitely 'comes from my heart'!



As well as the Elizabeth Bennett stamp I also used the IndigoBlu Circus Alphabet.  The flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts and the seed beads on the flowers are from my stash. The background card is pearlescent and has a lovely sheen to it.  The colouring is done with Promarkers.

This next one is for Sunday Stamper over at Hel's Blog where we have to use the colour orange.



The sentiment stamps are Inkadinkado. I used black pearls on some of the flowers and the background card is stamped with a Creative Expressions stamp and the colouring on the flowers and the letter 'B' is done with Cosmic Shimmer watercolour paints which have a lovely mica shimmer. The rest is with Promarkers. The ribbon on both is from my stash.

Please pop over to both Blogs and have a look see!  I am off to my Daughters tomorrow for a few days.  I will get lots of cuddles with my gorgeous Granddaughter Freya!  Thank you so much for visiting me, its so kind of you!  I will visit you when I can. Take care.  Christine xx

Wow, your cards are beautiful, Chris. I haven't seen the Elizabeth Bennett stamp before, but you certainly do it justice. It is so interesting to see how different the different colour-ways look. Fab work!

Wow! You get such a different look with that image when you change the color scheme. They are both lovely cards. I really like the touch of lace on them both. The alphabet on the top one-oh my!

Wow -- these two cards are amazing! They look totally different. I think I like the second one the most. I once had an orange wall in my house.... that might explain why!

Hugs,
Kay
