getting my paws inky

hello there!
today i'm over at the newton's nook designs blog with two more cards i made for the current inky paws challenge going on over at newton's nook designs! :) 

as a reminder, here is the sketch (and don't forget, if you don't own any newton's nook stamps yet, there's a free digi up for grabs. and it's CU-UTE!)

my first card is pretty straight forward. i used just say cheese and created this cute little snapshot of love! :)

the mouse (and cheese wheel) were paper pieced and popped up. i love the double meaning of 'cheese' being used here. i'm a sucker for puns. the polaroid is also popped up. then i added some enamel dots to spruce it up! :)

my next card is my favorite!

now stay with does follow the sketch - see?

i stamped the clouds from winged wishes onto vellum and then fussy cut it out.
the bird is from campfire tails and i colored over his beak with some inktense pencils (which really stands out surprisingly well on colored cardstock!).

then i added some pretty pearls to the card and called it complete.
love it!

so what are you waiting for? it's your turn to get inky and throw your hat in the ring for a chance to win!! free stamps people! :) you can follow the sketch loosely or spot on, whatever strikes your creative tail bone at the moment!
