2 Challenges - 1 Card

Hey, I'm back - last week I was just too tired to even think about making ANYTHING.  This week I'm cheating a little because I've covered 2 challenges with the one card- Kristina's Colour Inspiration Challenge and 2Sketches4You sketch challenge.  (Well, I've missed the cut off for Kristina's but I'm still in time for 2S4U)

Here's Kristina's inspiration piece - the colours are Rose Red, Regal Rose, Sage Shadow & Whisper White.  You can see Kazan's sketch here.






 This is what I came up with

As soon as I saw Kazan's sketch I knew I wanted to used Always - from the New Spring Mini which starts on August 1, 2008 and when I saw the colours in Kristina's challenge, I had the idea of stamping the bird with Versamark on white then embossing with clear EP and then colouring the details using my markers.  I wasn't sure how it would turn out but I was really happy with the result.  The rest is pretty self explanatory - no complicated techniques here!

Thanks for looking - hope you're all having a great weekend and keeping warm (the nights have been particulary cold here in Melbourne this week)

Catch you next week!
