Splash of Color

Today I made two cards!  Both play along with the Lawnscaping Challenge Color Splash!  I made the first card using Lawn Fawn's Bake me a Cake and then decided to use the left over paper to make another similar card with my new Sew Lovely stamps!  I was going for a retro kind of look with these.



The background paper is from October Afternoon's Modern Homemaker collection, I distressed it with Antique Linen Distress Ink.  The Red frosting is also from the Modern Homemaker paper pad and I colored the cake stand with an Silver American Crafts Metallic Marker. 


I kept the second card more simple and let the patterned paper do all the work.  The piece I had left over had this great image at the bottom left so I just added my splash of color with the sentiment, ribbon & buttons.  I added glossy accents to make the needle shiny.



I think they both turned out rather nice, sort of a different style than I usually create.  But that was what I was going for actually.  I will be entering these together at Lawnscaping because I think they should remain a pair. Thanks for popping in to check out my creations today!
