Seeing red

Only on my cards, lol! I've got two cards to share today that I managed to get done over the weekend. First is one using the sketch from Mojo Monday 95 combined with the red, black and white color challenge at StampTV. I colored the flower stamp with Marvy Markers and then stamped it. I filled in the flowers and leaves with prismacolor pencils. The large red panel was embossed with a Sizzix texture plate.

Paper: Cardstock (Black-Bazzill); other
Stamps: Simple Pleasures GinaK Designs
Tools: Martha Stewart Zig Zag punch; Nestabilites long and scalloped long rectangles; classic rectangle
Accents: Ribbon

Card size: 6.5 x 5 in.

Next is a card I made for a new challenge I discovered - Digital Tuesday Challenge. Digi stamps are beginning to be very popular and I discovered this challenge blog last week. Along with a digi stamp you are to use 2 design papers and 3 embellishments. I used three acrylic stones, three punched flowers and three button brads for embellishments. Now that I've said that, I'm now sure it really meets the criteria, that may be more than three, but still it's groups of threes. I colored my image with prismacolor pencils and OMS. The card design is based on the sketch which is the challenge at Stamp Something this week. I also chose the strawberries for Simon Says summer fruits challenge.
