The first one was a card from my class night on Wednesday. Perfect 'girly' card... soft, pastel, with a POP of color :)
Other: Shimmers Chalk Kit, misc. ribbon
Simply stamp in VersaMark and rub the chalk over the entire area. The VM picks up more of the chalk and causes it to really pop! The little bit left over the non-VM areas just adds to the soft look surrounding the image.
Oooooooo... pretty :)
The second card is geared toward the guys. I've never been very good at working with reds... if you look at most of my past posts, you can REALLY tell that I don't work with it. So I'm not crazy about this one. I do like the rick rack over the ribbon and the button.
Stamps: Forever, and two retired TAC stamps
Ink: Palette Noir
Other: White Scrapper's Floss, misc. ribbons & button
I had a tiny piece of this very cool black & white striped ribbon and HAD to use it. So, I sucked it up and dove into the whole red-black-white combo. Very simple & tailored looking... great for the dude in your life :)
What do you think about both of these??
