Quiet Waters-Sponged and Artsy!

Happy Friday night everyone! The last few days have been crazy for me but I did manage to create a couple of cards this week to share! I struggle with masculine cards! But this may be the easiest one I have ever made! I love the deep embossing you get from the Spellbinders nesties! The dies I used are Petite Ovals Small and Curved Rectangles. I masked the oval to stamp this beautiful image from Our Daily Bread designs called Quiet Waters. Then I sponged Bordering Blue, Always Artichoke, and So Saffron. I distressed the edges, added a sentiment (SU! Very Versatile) and ribbon to finish the card. Quick and easy!

Stamps-ODBD Quiet Waters and SU! Very Versatile
Paper-Black, Always Artichoke and watercolor paper
Ink-Memento Black, Bordering Blue, Always Artichoke, So Saffron
Accessories-ribbon, distressing tool, nesties, cuttlebug, Stamp-a-ma-jig, sponges

I was going for 'artsy' on this next card!

Did I succeed?! After stamping the deer scene onto watercolor paper, I used the Nested Bird die from Spellbinders to cut it out. Then I colored it with copic markers(B21,B34,B39,E31,E33,E51,G21,R22,YG95,W5). I highlighted the fawn and the stream with a white gel pen too! The background is another piece of watercolor paper inked with reinkers and a baby wipe! The edges are distressed. I cut out the scripture with a Labels Four die and sponged the edges. I colored the flowers with a copic marker too! (R22) The scripture has two layers of foam tape in the center and one on the edges to give it that curved look. Well, what do you think?

Paper-Certainly Celery, Old Olive, watercolor paper
Ink-Memento Black
Accessories-Reinkers(Cameo Coral, Old Olive, Ruby Red), ribbon, flowers, copics, MS punches, cuttlebug and die, spellbinders nesties, EK Success border punch, silver pearls, SU! filagree brads, foam tape, distressing tool

Have a great weekend and thanks so much for taking a look!
