A Few Challenge Cards

Hi, I thought I would share a few cards I made this for some challenges. This first is for today's challenge over at SCS " Ways to Use it". To make a card using Gradient Stamping. For mine I made the panel using the sunray technique changing it to a quilt pattern. I used Memento's in browns and pinks for it. The image is the newly released stamp set from Mark's Finest Papers, " Sew What? ". CS is MFP and the DP is Basic Grey.



This is for the sketch challenge over at STV. I used Theresa Momber's newly released set " Dino-mite" by Gina K. Designs. I love this fun set!! I also used Theresa's set " Aloha " by GKD. I created the circle background with masking and sponging and copic's. I stamped, reversed the image of the trees and cut them out. The dino image is colored with copic's and I added colored stone for the flower. CS is GKD and the DP is Basic Grey. Hummmm I could have called this a time tunnel, LOL. Anyway I had fun making this , where should she go next? Paris??



For my last card, the challenge is from SCS last weeks challenge Ways to Use It. To have butterflies on our card. I used the stamp set " Daffodil and Anise" by MFP. Colored the butterflies with Copic's, CS is MFP. I loved the colors in this.


Well, that is all for today but I will be back on Saturday for Speedy's next challenge.
Thanks for stopping by.

All are beautiful, Geri! I especially like the technique on the first card, (don't know why I never remember to use it!)and I adore masking! You rock, my friend - great job on all three cards!

All three are wonderful Geri. I just love the technique on the first one, I have never seen it before, and if I did I did not know what I was seeing. :)
