Yay! I stamped today! I haven't stamped much lately because I got new glasses earlier this month and I have been having trouble with them. I was fitted for contacts at the same appointment, and over the course of several attempts to wear them, discovered I am allergic to contact solution...thankfully, there's an alternative that I have been able to tolerate, although I can only wear them for short intervals. Let me just say, I'm sure not taking my vision for granted these days!
I have boxes and boxes of cards, but when I was invited to write some letters of encouragement for oneof the participants of our church youth group's mission trip, I wanted to make something new. I came across the Paper Smooches Sparks "Picture Perfect" challenge which inspired the two cards I'm sharing in this post. The thick and thin stripes on those crayons in their inspiration photo caught my eye. They form the foundation of the layout on both cards.
Although they look kinda different, they both also use prints from the same designer paper pack. The scribbly style of the floral seemed to go along with the crayon theme. I used alcohol markers to color the images, fussy cut them (yep, made me cross-eyed in these wacko glasses so don't look too closely!) and popped them up on dimensional adhesive.
My second card has sparkly Stickles clouds, and a big red grosgrain bow.
