a couple of sweet cards

hey there!
today i'm over on the sweet stamp shop blog!! i'm all over there talking about different ways to color images! what's your favorite way?

this time, i colored the same image (that cutie-pa-tootie washing mashine! from the newly release press it wash it stamp set!) with three different mediums! here's the result:

FUN, right?!

and here's my card that's over on the sweet stamp shop blog too!!

super fun!! i used a copic colored image and some looooooovely, dark, woodgrain paper! i stitched it on, and then added some wood veneers - that i of course had to add a little shine too!!
(thank you wink of stella glitter pen! ha!)

but guess what?! there's more! here's a BONUS card i made that totally compliments the first card! they could be set!
this time i used the distress marker colored image and some ligther woodgrain paper!

loooove this! i stitched on the woodgrain panel again, and popped up the washer! 
then, i colored the wood veneers with some distress ink (vintage photo) and then *cough* added more wink of stella glitter to these as well *cough*.

so that's it! 
now go on your merry way today, and read about some FUN coloring techniques on the sweetest blog around!!
