Looking For Love Parts 2 and 3

Man, have I been posting a ton or what, LOL!! I guess I am back in a grove or something...the after holidays funk has left the building(I hope)!! I decided to go ahead and do the Looking For Love Verve Challenges from yesterday and today. They were both sketch challenges, and I personally challenged myself to use two sets that I haven't inked before: Somebunny and Birthday Surprise. For the first sketch, I used my Birthday Surprise set. I stamped the bird with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it and the balloons(also stamped the same way on Gina K. 80lb white) with my SU markers. I then layered it with Bashful Blue, Rose Red and Old Olive. The DP is from the retired Rose Red Prints DSP. I layered it with more Rose Red and used my SU scalloped edge punch to create the scallops. I then added the ribbon(both SU) and all the silver brads. The white layer was run through my Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots folder. After it was all put together, and all my piercing was done, I added some glitter with my two way glue pen. Looking back, I wish I had left off the glitter, but what can you do.

For this second card, I used my Somebunny set...isn't it CUTE!! I love those super cute and floppy ears. I colored her/him with my SU markers after stamping her/him on Gina K. white with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. The ribbon was wrapped around the top corner first, then I added a bow with a glue dot. The ribbon around the DP panel, is retired Close To Cocoa grosgrain from SU. My DP is from the Imaginisce Happy Birthday pack that I got from Paper Addiction. The heart was punched out of some retired Loves Me DSP from SU. I layered it with Rose Red and Close To Cocoa and then added it to a Gina K. 120lb white base that I had stamped my sentiment on. This card is a tiny bit plain...bit I think I like it.


Well, that is it for me now...gotta get to bed or it is gonna be a LONG day tomorrow!!
