OWH Challenges


Here's my card for this week's OWH sketch #227. I used a Crafty Secrets stamp set for the image and sentiment panel. I colored the '57 Chevy with Copics, and also colored the neutral twine from Whisker Graphics to match. The dsp is from Bazzill Basics in shades of grey and I added 2 SU! red Candy Dots to accent the red highlights in the car.


This is my entry for this week's OWH midweek throwdown, which is a color challenge to use Pink, Grey, and Black. I started with an Inky Antics image and colored him with Copics to match the Blushing Bride card stock and striped dsp. I added some Smoky Slate Grey for the scalloped circle and punched border. The sentiment is from the same IA stamp set, and I added a few tiny black accent hearts left over from a SNSS heart border die along with some black satin ribbon to balance the lighter colors. I used the alternative OWH sketch #227 to put this card together.

I'm also entering this card into the Snippets Playground #127 with all the snippets I've used here.

Thanks for stopping by and make it a great day!

My fav all-time Chevy. Always wanted one of that year, and I loved this color too. A cool car, dude!Great houndstooth background, very macho, and really nice looking with the white polka dot paper too. Little heart bear is simply adorable, and sure to capture anybody's heart. Love the tiny heart sprinkles on the soft pink too. TFS & Hugs

Two fantastic cards, Carol; the first one with the vintage car is super! Great coloring and color choices; the image really pops off the page! Perfect tiny pops of red, too.

The bear is cute but the car is fabulous! Nice job.

Two super cards!!! The pops of red on the terrific masculine card (many ladies would like it too) and the sprinkles of black hearts on the adorable pink bear card are the perfect finishing touches.

Ann Abrahamson said...

Your coloring is fantastic! I especially like the touch of red with the turquoise of the car :-)

You colored the twine? My friend, you are very talented! And clever too. I love the classic herringbone with the classic car. Love the sweet pink and grey card with the bear.

Another awesome twosome using this week's sketch. Love the blue car and accents with the brown background. That little bear is adorable! Hope your week is going great!
