ABC12 ~ An Inspiration Challenge
All Beautiful Cards has this amazing inspiration photo for this weeks challenge:
I just fell in love with that cardinal - this pop of red among those snowy branches
So I made this card with my new Penny Black " all you need..." stamp set. I first stamped it in light grey and clear embossed it. Then I stamped over the image in black using a slight off-set. I then masked the bootm with a post it note and sponged a little grey around the branches. The heart is made with a corner punch from Fiskars.
And here is my card for the Retrosketches #46 challenge:
I just turned the sketch around - why not ...... The stamps are Hero Arts Silhouette Fern (K5314) and Alpine Fern (C3637). I inked htem up with Versamark and clear embossed them. The sentiment is Papertrey - Mixed Messages, used a small leaf punch from a company that does not like to put their name on their products....
