Wild at Heart - continuing the quest to make 10 cards with this set

hi there,
well some of you may remember my personal challenge to use the big background stamp in GKD's "Wild at Heart" set by Melanie on 10 cards - not an easy task when I've not worked with a big background stamp for sooo long....anyway, my goal this week while I'm away was to work with stamps that have just been collecting dust AND to continue this challenge. So have been working with this set today and enjoying these colors from the STV Color challenge (red, brown, green, ivory) using all the gorgeous Fall colors.

On the first card, airbrushed my pumpkin dp with E04 to make the pumpkin more brown instead of orange, stamped tree/fence in memento black and colored with Copics - used one half of a previously stamped WAH image (torn in half and used on both cards) and added faux stiching...and the vintage ticket...and ran the tiny ribbon through the lace...if you enlarge it - it doesnt look like there's a piece of vellum over it LOL


This second card looks like the dp on the bottom is black/grey but its SU's Olive dp (long ago retired), added pearls to the flowers and a piece of vintage scrap...sponged the sentiment, added the lace - done!

have two more to finish using blues (-:

I'm short two cards in reaching my goal, so dont be surprised if I CASE some of the beauties created by Melanie and her super talented Guest Designer, Mary Anne- check them out for some real eye candy with this set!!!

have a wonderful weekend!
My daughter and SIL are due to fly home tonight if the weather allows it - there is a tropical storm headed to Belize that we are praying doesnt affect their flight schedule...

The first card seems very Victorian to me, with the collage look. Love it! The second is also a collage look and Victorian feel to me, very pretty. Great job on your countdown! I'm just trying to make sure I've used all of the sets I have at least once!!!

HappyCrafter said...

these are both very neat! Love the collage style -- so much to capture the imagination :-)
