Random Cards

Hi Everyone! Here are 2 cards I made last night before I went to bed. I colored the images on the airplane when we took a trip to Washington DC. I colored a whole bunch of them and only now using them.

I love to color images on my down-time when I'm watching TV. I don't necessarily use them right away but store them for future use. It's a great way to have readily available images when you want to create a card.

I stamped the images on watercolor paper and colored them with the watercolor crayons. With the 2nd card, I outlined the image using markers then applied crystal effects to give it a 3D appearance.

I'm still in the process of cleaning out our garage. I worked on it for 4 hours today. Boy am I tired. I finally settled down for the day and it's nice to relax and be able to blog and perhaps have time to create a card tonight.

Check out my Card Inspired Blog site. . .I currently have a challenge going on there. I decided not to post it on this site because I wanted this blog to be open for other creations.

Vibrant cards--lovely. I like how you used watercolour crayons. How much stuff do you have in that garage? It seems like you have been in there for ages. If you don't post for a while, I'll send someone in to look for you--LOL.

Both beautiful cards. I must dust off my watercolour crayons and see if I can do half a good a job as you have done with these 2 cards. Thanks for the inspiration and for sharing.
