PaperPlay Challenge - use two stamped images

Hey everyone and happy Friday Eve! Usually short work weeks draaaaaag by, but this week is actually going by pretty quickly! I almost forgot to schedule my post for this morning cause it seems like it's not that time of the week yet! LOL! So anyway, it's time for a new challenge from PaperPlay Challenges, and this week the challenge is from our fabulously talented Miss Mandy. We are being sponsored by the amazing Nicole from Inky Impressions! If you've never tried their stamps, you're missing out! VERY high quality rubber impressions and the images are sooooo adorable!! Give yourself a little treat and pop over to take a look at all their fabulous line!!!  For the challenge this week, Mandy is asking everyone to use two stamped images on your project. Now I feel like I might have cheated just a smidge, cause I merged two digi images together instead of using two physical stamps. So I hope Miss Mandy doesn't mind that I went that way with her challenge. :)    For my card, I used "Geeky Love" and "By the window", both from Make it Crafty. I think this image is so cute and it was really fun to color! I made it for my daughter's wedding anniversary.


I used my Copic markers to color it and then used an awesome sentiment from a set of Whimsy stamps. Isn't that sentiment so much fun??!!!  The papers are Basic Grey matted with Bazzill cardstock, and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts (so is that pretty silver corner).  The ribbon is May Arts silk ribbon from Stamp and Create with a button from my stash.


I didn't write down the colors I used, so to the best of my old memory, I used R20's for his sweater and shoe's, B90's for his jeans, E13 and up for the window and table, T grays for her sweather and V90's for her skirt and shoes. Sorry, I have no idea about the hair.


Please be sure and pop over to PaperPlay Challenges to see all the gorgeous creations from the rest of the talented DT, and then we'd really love it if you'd grab your paper and glue and play along with us! Thanks so much for stopping by to see me today! I truly appreciate all your wonderful comments! Sure hope to see you again soon! Hugs!!!

There was a time I looked like this, there was a time he looked like this (I am talking about his hair) and there was a time he brought me flowers - now he brings me beets and green beans from his garden. You always make pretty and fun cards Sharon and I sure do enjoy visiting with you.
