A Few Card Challenges


MUSE Card Challenge





Hi there blog friends ~
A quick post tonight to share two cards for a few challenges:



This month, Anita is Guest Designer for Stamplorations CASEplorations Challenge and after seeing her gorgeous cards, I had to play along! I colored the ice cream bars with Zig Clean Color markers, and added a few gold foil hearts.

Also, today is Day 18 for Kathy's 30 Day Coloring Challenge, and this morning, Kathy shared a video with tips on coloring with Zig markers. I'll be sharing this card over there, too.

*****

Of course I had to play along in one of my favorite challenges...Muse Card Club ~ Tracey is our Muse this week, and her card is so pretty! Here is my 2nd card:


 I haven't played with this set very much, and thought it would be fun to ink it up for this challenge. I embossed the centers with gold EP, and kept it very clean and very simple by keeping it one layer.

So, that's it for me...Thank you so much for stopping by,

Fabulous coloring on your ice cream card Barb. It makes me yearn for warmer weather. Your flowers on the second card are perfectly stamped and are a perfect Muse entry.

Fabulous cards Barb, it's those ice-creams I can't stop looking at (maybe because they are one of my all time fave foods lol)!

Two awesome cards Barb. Love the sweet ice cream treats --- so fun! And your one layer flower card is gorgeous. I really struggle with one layer ... you make it look so easy, but it's not! :) xx

Such beautiful blooms, Barb ... fresh, vibrant and so lovely! What a fantastic CASE ... those sorbet coloured ice creams with the tiny foil hearts are simply scrumptious ... love how you were inspired! Thanks so much for playing along with us at CASEplorations!
