Make It Monday #235 Adding Color to Stamped Images with Colored Pencils and Gamsol

Oh my, it has been so long since I have made a card let alone a flower card.  Here is a technique by Laurie from PTI's MIM Click to view.
My clear Wink of Stalla put too much ink on these flowers so they look a little cloudy.  I really had a hard time getting a good picture.  Sorry about that.  It looks much better in real life.  

PTI's Vintage Linens on Vintage on Fine Linen Cardstock.  
MFT Linen BG stamp inked with Fine Linen
Terracotta Tile and Summer Sunrise and Simply Chartreuse for flowers then added some shading with Prisma color pencils and blending solution to blend.
Gold Delicata for the Sentiment. 
Used the gold Uniball pen that I got from my BFF for Christmas to outline the card.

Merry Monday #184 Lori - Baking Theme - Curtain Call, Milk & Cookies

Come join us this week at Merry Monday where Lori has challenged us to use a baking theme on our card.
This gingerbread cookie is the only stamp that I found that I could use as a baked item.
I white embossed the sentiment and other images and used silver and red embossing on the Kisses.
Then used PTI's New Leaf and Ocean Tides to sponge on the background.    This was a technique that I saw on Kristina Werner's Blog and I basically cased her card....
