Two Very different Cards!

Hi Everyone,

I have two cards for you today.

For the first one I pulled out my cute YNS stamps  and I am playing in their latest color challenge - you have to pick at least 3 colors. I settled for green, yellow and a tiny blue ink splot.

Made a puddle of water on water color paper and then filled it in with water colors. Waited for it to dry and then stamped that sassy snake on it. Added some definition with a white Sharpie and some splatters, as well as the sentiment. 

This is a one layer card - I love to make those. Rounded the corners. 

Linking up with:
Pink Elephant challenge - Anything goes
YNS Color Challenge 12

And now my second card - very different and not my usual style. but I wanted to use my Ryn Tanaka stamps again - thy need to be inked up every once in a while..... This one I have had for a long time and actually never used.... I also wanted to play in the WOW embossing powder challenge - not quite sure how long Mr. Linky is going to be open and I did not want to miss the deadline...

I stamped the spiral shell with Versamark and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. I then made the background using shimmer sprays in rainbow colors and once dry added some more stamping with the smaller stamp from the sea bubbles set. My sentiments are by Stamplorations - Artful Flutters

As luck will have it Shopping our Stash current challenge is opposite day - how fitting, since I am really a CAS gal and that is quite the opposite of what I normally do. I still like it and it also shimmers beautifully!
Of course I am linking up with Ryns' April customer card gallery

Happy stamping Everyone and there is still a little bit of time to participate in my 200 follower celebration - there is a nice give away - interested? Click HERE!

Whoa! Both of these cards are really different! Miss.CAS perfectionist, the first card is so cool and makes you smile! The second card is vibrant and happy! I loved how you used the clear embossing technique here. :) Always glad to stop by your blog.
Cya then,
Suchi xx

Die Karte mit der Schlange gefällt mir sehr gut, besser als die mit den Schneckenhäusern. Vermutlich, weil die erste Karte mit wenig Zutaten dermaßen aussagestark ist. Ich mag diesen Stil.
LG Flo

Barbara said...

Wow, die Schneckenkarte ist wirklich toll geworden - gefällt mir super!

Ryn Tanaka said...

Hey Cornelia, makes me feel so good to read that you like coming back to my stamps every once in a while :) It's honestly always a treat to see how you use them. You say that the second card isn't your style but it looks GORGEOUS! Love those colours :) Many thanks for continuing to share your art with me!

Deborah Anton said...

Both cards are beautifully done! Great job with the watercolors. Thanks for joining us over at YNS!

Yes, your cards are different, but their connection is how awesome they both are! I'm being repetitious, however, you're to blame: you continue to design cards that are exponentially marvelous. Your snake, stamped in his green water-coloured puddle, is darling (if that can be said of snakes *grin*). Your second card: fresh, bright, beautiful. Love them both!

Manuela said...

so lustig die Schlange! gefällt mir super, auch die andere Karte sieht toll aus!

Becca Cruger said...

OOoooo! Looks like you had some fun with watercolors! That first one made me crack up and I LOVE the rainbow background on the second.

Chana Malkah said...

You did a fabulous job of taking on a style outside your normal genre! Nicely composed and beautifully executed! Thanks for taking the Oppposite challenge this week at Shopping Our Stash!

Great blending with those sprays - wow. Thanks for the heads up about the WOW challenge. I'll let you know what I think of their powders. Don't actually have any yet.

Fabulous cards both have gorgeously bright colours. It's fun to do something out of your comfort zone once in a while. Thanks for playing along with us at Shopping Our Stash for the Opposite Day Challenge.
