All Kine Way Cards

Good Morning Everyone! Wow, yesterday was a busy day for me. I'm currently cleaning OUT my craft room and bringing many of my stuff down into the garage. I decided that I'll use my garage to store my craft products, like a stock room. If I need something, I'll go down to the garage and pull it out rather than keeping everything inside my room, the hallway, and everywhere else. I think this will keep me from messing up my room all the time. A messy room drives me NUTS!

Anyway, here are two cards I made for Jen's "Pieces of Me" - "All Kine Way" Challenge. The challenge is to use one main image and create two different cards with the same image. I think her challenge ends on August 17. Check it out if interested in a good challenge.

With both cards, I colored the images using SU Watercolor Crayons on to watercolor paper. It's easier to watercolor than it is to with Prismacolor Pencils with Gamsol but the color is not as vibrant. The coloring time is cut more than half the time but I still prefer the results of the pencils.

Card Details:

Stamps: Whipper Snapper, Studio G
Ink: SU Watercolor Crayons, Really Rust ink
Paper: SU Positively Pink and Rose Red DCWV scrapbook paper, Autumn Leaves designer paper
Accessories: Sizzix die (hearts), Foo-la-la buttons
