The Stamping Boutique Spring cards

Had a chance to play around with m stamping goodies this afternoon and came up with 3 cards ...

This first one is 2 images morphed into one - AJ and the stone wall ... Yes, I could have popped him up for dimension, but I wanted to layer the image into one for practice.  He was colored with Copics.  (I have to either start writing numbers down or take a picture of them laying around the drawing table one of these days.)  I couldn't find a sentiment that worked (Go figure, lol), so I used my computer to create this one.  Because the print on the designer paper is so large, I wanted that to show through, so I kept my layers to a minimum.

This next card is also a digital image from The Stamping Boutique - Rabbit in Egg.  She was colored with Copics as well.  I used saffron and lavendar for the base and mats as well as the flourishes from Sizzix.  Finished with some crocheted trim and lavendar ribbon as well as some pretty purple pearls.

This last one is the Dragon from The Stamping Boutique, colored with Copics again.  Can you tell I'm thinking SPRING?  lol ... Computer generated this one, too ... Even Dragon's look forward to the miracle of spring!  I used suede, chocoalte and garden green for the various layers.  I added a vanilla strip punched with the scalloped border layered underneath the Basic Grey designer paper.  To finish off, I took my clear glitter gel pen and doodled the faux brads on the scalloped border as well as the image panel and larger sentiment panel.

Thanks for popping in.  What do you think about any of these cards or any others you've seen here?
