I've finished up the last of the Valentines, and it's a good thing because we're having a false spring and the outdoors are beckoning. This is not the time to be sitting in my stamp room no matter how much fun it is. Must enjoy that sunshine before it goes away again!
Today I have two more cards using the uber-cute Va-Va-Valentines digi set from Power Poppy. I was thinking how quick and simple these cards are, but I looked at my pile of supplies after I finished -- three paper pads, four die sets, one embossing folder, ribbon, rhinestones... no wonder my room was such a mess! I'll list all supplies at the end. The first card is a soft color combo with honest to goodness ribbon.
The second card has a good deal more color set against a white embossed background. The swirls in the embossed panel and the ribbon tails are meant to echo the swirly pattern in the designer paper. Coloring on both cards was done with Copic markers.
The first card with its pink/gray/red color combo is for the Color Throwdown challenge.
The second card is just because.
My room is all tidied up now and ready for the next project... when the rain comes back. Have a happy day!
