Gone buggy!!

I love this stamp from papersource!! It is so great to color in with pencils. I stamped on kraft cardboard, like to tooth on the paper that makes the pencil color pop. Added some white with a white gel pen. Pattern paper is from kaleidoscope.

I was not going to make another card for the challenge, but I had this color combo that I used on another card so I decided to go for it! Background circles embossed with the stitched circle set. Tab, bottom and flower all embossed with the swiss dot folder. Bottom of the card the dots are innies, creates a different look. House stamp is Paula's Best and the words are a cheap 1.00 stamp from Michaels. Pattern paper is by K & Company. Hope everyone is having a good weekend!! Again TFL

Stamped the house (rubbermoon) and colored with prismacolor pencils. To give the house dimension I ran it through the script embossing folder. Green strip was ran through the swiss dot folder. Flower stamps and pattern paper basic grey. TLF

Caardvarks Fansty Challenge

This card was designed for the Caardvarks Fantasy Challenge. I actually did not think I was going to submit any cards for this challenge since I did not think I had any stamps to fit the bill. I looked through my stash ans actually found a lot of stamps that would of worked. I actually do not know the mfg of the background letters or the girl. I bought them un-mounted and did not put the mfg on the back (sorry). The quote is from a Tim Holtz set. All ink is from Tim Holtz's distressed line. TLF enjoy....
