Waltzingmouse blog hop

This is my first blog hop ever! I have two cards for the waltzingmouse stamps blog hop
In both cards I created my own patterned paper with Waltzingmouse stamps.
Stamps: Off beat backgrounds, vintage circles, the butterfly is from Hero Arts (Antique Engravings) and it's been coloured with Copic markers.
Inks: Desert Sand, Bamboo leaves, pear tart, Tuxedo Black (Memento), scattered straw and tea dye (Distress Inks)
Accessories: bazzill cardstock, nestabilities, blending tool, summer sunrise ribbon (PTI), lace corner punch (Fiskars)

In this card I used one of the two circle stamps released this month by Waltzingmouse stamps. The main circle and the decorative corner stamps are very elegant and I paired them with some elegant roses (from Flourishes).

Stamps: Faux Fun circles (Waltzingmouse stamps), the roses are from the "calendar set" (Flourishes)

Inks: lemon tart (the stamp was previously inked with berry sorbet ink and stamped off), both inks are from Papertrey (Palette inks). Rose bud, pear tart and tuxedo black (Memento). The corners were stamped with Raw Sienna (Palette) and I outlined it with a gold spica pen (the glittery effect doesn't show in the picture).

Accessories: butterfly punch, peel-off stickers (borders), inverted scallop nestabilities, summer sunrise ribbon (Papertrey).

Now, continue the blog hop to ANTJE's blog.

Pink pansies - Kitchen Sink Challenge

I have another card for the Kitchen Sink challenge #22 (faux patterned paper).
This time I used one of my favorite Kitchen Sink sets (multi-step pansies).
I wanted to use some paint spots, so I used one of the stamps in the Hibiscus set (step 5 - largest flower). I only inked the top half of the stamp to create some tiny dots.
Stamps: Multi-step pansies (Kitchen Sink Stamps)

Inks: Memento and Palette

Accessories: peel-off stickers (corners) colored with permanent markers, clear peel-off stickers (borders), half peals.
