Speech bubbles

It’s the 5th day of the month, that means a new challenge at Sarah Hurley 365 blog.  This month’s challenge theme is “Speech Bubbles”. 

For my take, I used the printed speech tab and the speech bubble stamp from A Few of my Favorite Things February East Village kit. The kit includes two speech bubbles but here I used the straight lined one.

I then stamped the Sentiment using the Outline Alpha stamps (love this set too). I just added some scribbled lines in the word “happy” for some texture and fun. The orange patch stamp is from the Doodle Doll Art Girl stamps. All the papers are from Sarah’s AFOMFT May Caught on Camera kit. I embossed the background for some additional texture too.

A graphic kind of design fit for a masculine card isn’t it?

Cool Shades challenge

It’s already late night but really wanted to do my take in Paper Smooches Cool Shades challenge 15-21 April. One of the stamps company I really love is Paper Smooches  🙂 So whenever I have the chance, I do take part in their blog challenges. 

I used the Paper Smooches Zoo Crew stamp set for this project. I stamped the images in pattern papers and cut them individually. I originally embossed the images and colored them with watercolor pencils but was not really happy with the result. It ended up too light and can’t recognize the images anymore. So pattern paper it is, added some buttons too for texture.

I used blue background watercolor for the images but it ended up too light again, well should do more practice in watercoloring.
