Card Trio

It’s Friday and time for the Colour Crazy Challenge. This challenge is “Anything Goes” but adds one requirement- the creation needs to include coloring in “any colouring medium you like, onto any project you like, and in any colours you like.” I’ve never outgrown my love for coloring… which is why making cards is stress therapy for me!!
This weeks sponsor is Stampers Delights, and my DT card features a sweet image named Chibi Winner Girl. I colored the little cutie and positioned her on an A2 sized card, sitting atop a free sentiment from Create with TLC. A sprinkling of silver stars adds an extra touch of celebration to the card!  
·   Digi- Stampers Delights  (Chibi Winner Girl)
·   Colored with Spectrum Noir Classique markers, Sakura Gelly Roll white & silver gel pens, and Sharpie metallic silver pen
·   Front Sentiment- Create with TLC Freebie (You Are Awesome )
·  Inside Sentiment- Create with TLC Freebie (Live In The Moment)
·  Assorted background papers and silver glitter paper from my stash

I had fun creating another card for the Day of the Month Challenge, National Watermelon Day. I printed this sweet Bugaboo image onto kraft brown cardstock and used colored pencils, plus grey marker for shading and white gel pen for highlights. When finished, I added vellum wings to the little bear (colored them on the underside with white colored pencil) plus a few cute little bees, with vellum wings, to provide a bit of whimsy and texture.
·   Digi- Bugaboo (Watermelon Butterfly Bear)
·   Colored with Aquarelle Watercolor pencils, Spectrum Noir alcohol markers and Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen
·   Little Bee digis- Freebies from Birdscards (you can find them HERE)
·   Front Sentiment- Desert Diva Freebie (Sweet Birthday Wishes)
·   Inside Sentiment- “Hope Your Day is the Sweetest Ever” Beccy’s Place Digital Set (Sweet As Candy)
·   Kraft cardstock, vellum, and assorted background papers from my stash

My final card for this post is a Beautiful Botanical entry into Simon Say's Monday Challenge. I used a beautiful wood-mount stamp from PSX (which was once my favorite company!), embossed in white and colored with chalks and markers. I'm low on sympathy cards, so decided to use an old stamp set from SU! for the sentiments. My color scheme isn't typical for sympathy cards, but I love the brightly colored tulips. To me, they represent new life!
PS- I think that the sentiments are from an old SU set. I pulled them off the wood years ago so I'm not sure but the inside sentiment is similar to other SU sets. 
·   Bucket of Tulips image- PSX Wood Mount Stamp (the company is out of business)
·   Embossed with white pigment ink and white embossing powder from my stash
·   Colored with decorative chalks and Spectrum Noir alcohol markers to add shading
·   Sentiments- from retired Stampin’ Up sets- Petite Pairs and one name unknown 
·   Assorted background paper, white paper doily and a scrap of ribbon from my stash
