Winnie & Walter

Time is running out for the W&W Challenges, so these may be my last 2 cards.  Gotta say--I really had fun with these two!
First is my card combining the Shaker Challenge, the Comeback (CASE) Challenge (Lydia's card March 17, 2017) & the Die Challenge
I started by stamping a black & white panel using images from In Bloom: Addie's Garden & In Bloom: Renee's Leaves.  Since I love pink with black & white (or anything else!) I used a variety of pink sequins & PPP star confetti for the shaker mix.  My favorite In a Word: Hello was die cut twice & the top layer was covered with Nuvo Crystal Glaze.  I'm also entering SSS Wednesday.

Next is a card combining Rerun No 27 inspired by Heather H's rainbow balloons card, the Repetitive Stamping Challenge & the Watercoloring with a Twist Challenge
I stamped the flower from In Bloom: Addie's Garden on a panel of Bristol paper using black Versafine.  I added color with Zigs Wine Red, Orange, Yellow, May Green, Persian Blue & Violet.  My twist is the addition of white dots using my extra fine Sharpie.  The sentiment is from Penny Black's every happiness & I finished off with black splatters & PPP clear dots.  I'm also entering SSS Monday.  Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.

  11. Wonderful cards for W & W Greta. The shaker card is wonderful in its black and pinks. Your tulip card has a wonderful loose quality to it.

  13. The glossy sentiment and the black frame of the shaker card make it really striking! And the row of colorful flowers are so pretty! I didn't have time to make as many cards for the Winnie & Walter birthday bash as I would have liked to... :(
