Three New Cards

Three cards.Three very bright cards. I do start with this idea of some soft blending but I just struggle with soft. I do so love BRIGHT. So I go with the flow and thats what I end up with. 

This first card was  partly inspired by a card I saw at the Muse Card Challenge

This is Tracey's card for the challenge and I came away with thoughts of
colour from up in one corner getting lighter as it drifts down. I decided to go with yellows so used Distress Inks Lemonade to Amber for the deeper colour.

 Something cute sitting on a board, well how about a cute little fairy on a fluffy cloud or two.
She is coloured with Copics and fussy cut.

Of course I had to make those clouds sparkly ones. My sky is a special one as it's yellow not blue. And my fairy has lots of sparkle but we needed a close up to see it.

A sentiment wishing someone 'Happy Birthday' at the bottom and its all finished.

My Next card is for  Valentines Day. Stamped this sweet image from Penny Black.

Copic coloured and Glossy Accents on the hearts to give a 3D look to them.
A new 'Hugs & Kisses' diecut in bright red metal cardstock.

You can see the gloss on the hearts here.

What a little sweetie she is.

This next card is a blended Distress Inks cardbase in a few different Pinks trying to keep it light. Once I was happy with the colour I  cut the new 'love' die from the card base and again from silver.

Set the silver cut back into the negative. Replaced all the little bits and pieces. Then stamped and coloured this little cute duck from a Penny Black stamp set.

I have fussy cute the duck and around the hearts and even the two little hearts that actually sit just above the duckling when stamped.

I decided the duckling looked cute sitting on the boxes the 'love' word is stacked on as it looks like he is rubbing his head after they fell on him. Can you see it now I've mentioned it???

Aileen, I struggle with blending of any sorts and tend to be heavy handed! I am determined to get it right one of these days! All of your cards are wonderful. You seem to do just great with blending! I really love your valentine cards. That duckling is adorable. Your one for the STB challenge is fab too. She looks like a little cherub bouncing on the clouds. So happy to have you in our gallery at Seize the Birthday. Please join us again soon!
