Mercies Past and Present

By “mercies”, I mean Mercy Kerin of “Lord Have Mercy”.

Here are two cards using Mercy’s Tuesday Sketch Challenge.

The first one is from last week—just could not get “quality” stamping time together to get it done before she posted the new one. 

Here is the Sketch:


Spring Birds and Tree

  • Stamps: Into the Woods by DoodleFactory from Starving Artistamps;
  • Ink: Memento-Pear Tart; Fluid Chalk Ink-Dark Brown; SU! Craft Ink-Regal Rose;
  • Paper: dp-3 Bugs in a Rug; Cardstock-Prism;
  • Other Items: plastic flower (American Crafts); felt flower; brad; foam tape; chalks (for coloring);

and here is this weeks sketch (then my card):


Spring flowers

  • Stamps: Into the Woods by DoodleFactory from Starving Artistamps;
  • Paper: We R Memory Keepers; Prism; watercolor paper;
  • Ink: VersaMark; Tim Holtz Distress Ink Reinkers for watercoloring;
  • Other Items: Foam Tape; Flower punch, circle punch, Martha Stewart border punch; ribbon; white embossing powder;

Yeah, Both are a bit spring-y.  A bit strange considering that Autumn is my favorite season.  But hey, why fight it.

Thanks for stopping by!!!
