schweet news!

I get to announce that I was chosen among 5 other fantabulous designers, to be one of the Winter Team at 2sketches4you! The other ladies- Hanneke, Rae, Katie, Peet, and Heidi- are just the most talented group! I can't believe I get to create along with them, it's going to be an exciting three months! Here are my cards I created for my DT submission- that the fabulous and sweet Kazan and Laura apparently liked enough to pick me!
supplies for the bird card are- Bobunny paper, martha stewart punch and bird stamp ( I inked with staz on- then watercolor penciled and drug out the colors with a water brush) , prima flowers, those fab. michaels pearls, a simple rubon from MME, and an american crafts ribbon.
I really like how this turned out- not as dimensional as I typically make- but still had a lot of depth feeling.

Now this card- I have always loved when anyone made a shape with their primas- but I shied away from it- so I didn't do something someone else had just done. So here is mine- finally a couple years later, but I really like how this turned out, esp with the 800 half pearls on it. I used some Scenic Route paper and martha punch. the LOVE is punched from a SR diecuts page. Hugs and Kisses is from an Art Warehouse rubon book, and ribbon and twine are craft supplies.

thanks and have a great night!
