Your Next Stamp 1st Design Team Call - 2 cards

Good day to you and thank you for stopping by!

"Your Next Stamp" is having it's first Design Team Call. Since it is going to be a new challenge blog, I decided to make two new cards to enter this DT call. These two cards' layouts are original and created on my own, so it took me a bit longer than usual. Please scroll down for additional pictures for these two cards. I am keeping my fingers crossed.

This is my first entry card. I layered the leaves on the branch to add some dimensions. I embossed the green cardstock ( in the background) and rubbed some pink ink on top to create more contrast.




This is my second entry card. I airbrushed some blue color around the image. I punched out the flowers in different colors and layered them to use as my embellishment. I also added some Flower Soft on the image for additional details.

Ok, that's all for today's post and I will see you soon. Once again, thank you for stopping by to visit my blog. Have a great time for the rest of your week!

Cabio, gorgeous cards. You did an exceptional job with both. Love the designs. Wonderful colour schemes and beautifully coloured. I love all the little details you did for a more 3-D look. Golly gee, did you actually cut out those tiny leaves? Love the flowers. Wish you the very best of luck.
