Online Card Classes Day 2

I have been slacking on my Online Card Classes.  So I decided tonight would be a good night to work on it.  These are the cards I made.

I started by making the background and I used Picket Fence Distress Paint and inked up my stamp and stamped by paper.  I then dried it and took my mini distress ink blender and peacock feathers ink and added ink over the paint.  The paint almost resists the color.  Once I added enough color.  I took a baby wipe and wiped off a little of the color.  I then die cut the circle using a Spellbinders die.  For the birthday card.  I just glued the background to the card base.  Then stamped the sentiment in VersaMark ink and embossed with silver embossing powder.  For the Hello Card I stamped the boarder with an old stamp I had in my stash.  I then took chipboard pieces from the Modern Miss collection from Bo Bunny.  I glued them down and then added Clear Wink of Stella. 
These cards were so quick and easy and I love how they turned out.  What do you think? 
Thanks for looking.

Online Card Classes 2 Day 1

Hi Everyone,
I decided that it might be fun to sign up for the online card class called stretch your stamps.  Yesterday was the first day and it was awesome.  It was on background stamps.  I learned a few new techniques that I decided to test out.  Here is what I came up with.

For this card I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink in the colors picked raspberry, festive berries, and salty ocean.  I added the color to a craft sheet with the colors next to each other.  Then I took the stamp which I got at Michaels and used the colors and my own stamp pad.  Then I added a little water to the stamp to get the colors to blend a little and stamped in on some watercolor paper.  I then cut it into strips and edged each strip with salty ocean.  I glued them to a card base.  I added some thickers for the sentiment and cut out some butterflies with my Martha Stewart punch.  I colored the butterflies with salty ocean and glued them to the card.  I really like how it turned out.  I also made the following cards.  

Let me know what you think.  Thanks for looking.
