getting back into the swing

My eyes were feeling much better yesterday, so I thought I would get myself back into the creative swing by tackling a couple of challenges I had seen around. This first card was a response to the sketch this challenge posted earlier in the week. The Regal Rose card base has been stamped with the Scribble This swirl in VersaMark, the layer of batik paper has been stamped with the small Scribble This flower with Bravo Burgundy ink (stamped off on scrap once before each impression on the batik paper), and the Natural Beauty stamp has been inked with Lovely Lilac and stamped on Whisper White. The Sweet Shop ribbon is attached with a couple of Apricot Appeal and Certainly Celery brads.

This next one was a sketch I had seen at Scrappers Anonymous. I've been doing quite a few landscape cards lately, so decided to flip the sketch. Not sure that this did the card any good, but hey... The Both Ways Blossom flowers and Sincere Salutations sentiment have both been stamped on Whisper White cardstock with StazOn black, the flowers coloured with an Aquapainter and ink from the pads (Pale Plum, Lovely Lilac and Pink Passion). They've been layered onto some marble paper, which is layered on top of Certainly Celery and the Pale Plum cardbase. The ribbon is some I picked up AGES ago from Go-Lo, the brads are Doodlebug Lilac.

Last night I was taking part in the Inklings cyberstamp, so I'll have cards from that to post later.
