I've noticed that all of the winning cards of the past four challenges have been on white card bases...maybe coincidence, I'm not sure. At any rate, I made two cards on white card bases but another on a blue Hero Arts note card. (I think I like the blue one best to be honest!)
My first card uses a felt bird I found in a package at Michael's...couldn't wait to use this fella! Using the Papertrey Ink Wreath for All Seasons stamp set, I stamped the wreath in Walnut Stain distress ink twice, then added the dots in Pool mid-tone ink. I added light blue Stickles to the wreath for a little sparkle. Finally, I embossed the sentiment in white and added the bird on a small pop dot.
Here's a close-up of the felt bird...it came with the gem on the eye and everything!
My next two cards use a white base and a Cuttlebug embossing folder border. The sentiments on both cards are from the Paper Smooches Sentiment Sampler.
I colored this image with colored pencils and added a small black enamel dot to the eye.
I love these little "Calendar Chicks" from Stampendous! I colored this "Flower Chick" with colored pencils and added black enamel to the flower centers (see close-up below).
I am really loving these clean and simple challenges every week! Honestly, I'm happy I've been able to make any cards at all this week...I've been staying up WAY too late at night watching the Olympics and I am dog tired in the morning! (They are worth watching, though...very exciting stuff!)
Have a great day,
