My first card is for the Mojo Monday Sketch #89 and Flourishes Timeless Tuesday, which was to frame your image. I just loved the sample that Silke made, so I decided to try one myself. I really struggled with the layout....nothing was really working for me today!
Plus, the whole image looks crooked to me---it is not, I even measured it, but the angle of the photo makes it look that way, I guess! Anyway, both the sentiment and image are old SU sets, accented with Linen and Sanded background stamps, and antiqued with Antique Linen Distress ink. I watercolored the hive, which bled the image a little (stamped in Chocolate Chip) but added to the vintage look of the card. A little border from Inque Boutique's Stitch Fun is stamped along the bottom. Close to Cocoa ribbon and a button finish it off. Paper is Cameo Coral, Close to Cocoa, Watercolor and Just Perfect Flowers from MME.
This is a smaller card, and uses PTI's Scattered Showers set, stamped in Pumpkin Pie, Only Orange and Cameo Coral. I masked & sponged the "sand" in More Mustard, then daubed Versamark on top. Heat & Stick powder was applied and heated, then Dazzling Diamonds poured on and heated again.
Be sure to stop back tomorrow for a new Color Throwdown Challenge! Have a great day!
