A Day For Daisies: Designers Valentine Showcase; Challenge 140

Today at A Day For Daisies the design team has chosen some of their favorite love images from the ADFD Store to showcase the “Love” challenge.  The inspiration for this challenge is this great collage.

My card today uses Mr. Right, a vintage image featuring an in love couple.  I started with Copic Markers, added a bit of watercolor pencil, and finished off with Art Anthology “Splash” which is a dimensional paint that is transparent and sparkly. I then embossed the whole image with a We R Memory Keepers folder, used a few My Favorite Things Die’s, added a sentiment from the new Hero Arts kit, and cut out the card base with a Spellbinders scallop die.

Send a Smile 4 Kids Challenge #107 Clean & Simple 4 Kids

Happy Weekend!  It’s time for a new Send a Smile 4 Kids challenge celebrating Clean & Simple cards 4 Kids.  Joining us today are more really great sponsors offering generous prizes to our winners.  You have until Friday, August 21st to enter.

I also wanted to remind you that Send a Smile 4 Kids is growing by adding more hospitals and more volunteers to take your donated cards.  We hope that after you enter the challenge you consider sending your cards to SAS4Kids for children in need.  Check out how.

Now, let’s get on to those sponsors:

1) Bugaboo – Offering a 7 images of winners choice

2) Lacy Sunshine – offering 3 images of winners choice

3) Kitchen Sink Stamps – offering a $25.00 Gift Certificate to Store

Now how about some inspiration?   My first card uses Bugaboo’s “Rock Star Boy.”   I admit, Clean & simple is not the easiest for me so I got a little rambunctious with my star embellishments which I cut from My Favorite Things dies.  The flames are also from MFT and part of a rock n’ roll die set with a guitar.

My next card is from Lacy Sunshine called, “Eleanor & Pickles Back to School.”  I colored her with Copic Markers and cut her out with a Spellbinders die.  The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp “To Thine Own Shelf.”  This example is more in the Clean & Simple style.
