Splitcoast Ways to Use it Challenge

Today over at Splitcoast Stampers, the Ways to Use it challenge is to use Hearts.

This first card uses a digital image from The Stamping Boutique, Audrey at the Wishing Well.  I made her on the large size as I wanted her to be predominant on the card.  She was colored with Copics (R00, 20, 22, 24, 27, 29, E000, 00, 11, Y23, YR23, E33, E40, C1, 3, 4, 5).  I added some red stickles to the patch on her heart and yellow stickles to her shoe buckles.  The sentiment is computer generated, punched with an oval then popped up on a heart punched from a Creative Memories punch.  I added some diamond stickles to the edge of the heart mat.  Finishing touches included yet more hearts in the form of a Martha Stewart heart border punch with a ribbon tied around it.

This second card was made for the same challenge.  This is a digital image of Patch (the bear) that I merged onto the new bench Tracey just came out with before coloring with Copics (E31, 33, 35, YR23, E51, 53, V12, 15, R00, R20, 24, 27, C1, 3, YG11, G21).  I added some glossy accents to Patch's nose, heart and to the heart and dots on the bench.  The sentiment is a Hero Arts stamped then punched with a Creative Memories heart punch, then matted on eggplant.  The panel behind the image is white cut with an open scalloped Nestie then sponged with lavendar.  Finished off with some lavendar Stickles on the scalloped circle, image panel and sentiment panel, as well as a lavendar satin ribbon.  I'm loving this one - of course, Purple is my favorite color!

Thanks for stopping by to see what I've been up to ... What do you think?
