Two cards for you today. This first one started life because of The Card Concept theme - use an umbrella. Am I too grungy to be clean and layered?
I'm also entering it into Keep It Simple Bright Spark (bright colours or sparkly things)
I bought the Tim Holtz die a few months ago and rather than cut a dark silhouette I wanted to use bright colours. So I cut it in white, then swooshed it through some spritzed Distress Inks. Conveniently, some new stamps arrived from STAMPlorations which had the perfect sentiment. The stamps will be available to buy in May (go here for details of the stamps and a blog hop).
This next card is for Just Us Girls Colour Challenge (any blue and any orange - my orange is spiced marmalade - sploshed on, of course!).
And it's also for Moxie Fab World - Hip On Handwriting (use your own handwriting or something handwriting-inspired).
