Blue Skies & Blossoms

Hi! Here are a couple of cards I made today, inspired by this week's Muse challenge.

I stamped the image onto the reverse side of some hammered card, so there'd be a little bit of texture. I cut the image down to a square, and backed with white card and then navy card. It looked too dark placed straight onto navy. I added the sentiment, backed with navy card, and used a butterfly punch on some leftover stamped image. I added Nuvo Drops to the flower centres.




I'm entering this one in the following challenges:

Muse:
4 Crafty Chicks: 'Butterflies'
Tuesday Throwdown:



I used a smooth card for this one, which gave a deeper blue and a crisper image. I used a smaller sentiment, to show off more of the image. I like the deeper blue, but I think I prefer the first card.




I'm entering this one in the following challenges:

Deep Ocean Challenge: 'Spring'
Simon Says Stamp: 'Showers and/or Flowers'

Ingredients:
Penny Black stamp: 'Glory of Modesty'
Artistry Ink pad: Blue Chase
Nuvo Drops: Pale Gold

These are both really elegant cards ... my pick (if I had to choose) is the one with the little butterly - such a smart addition
