Two cards today

I have managed to get tow cards done tonight.  I had half done the colouring in on the Outline Flowers yesterday and finished it off tonight.  I had started this by just colouring in the blue flowers but saw that someone had already done one like that for the Hero Arts colorit challenge, so decided to make this one a bit more colourful... hence all the other colours.  I used watercolour pencils by Mondeluz.  They are lovely soft pencils that colour so well.  I used a white-out pen to add the white dots.  You know the ones you get to white out mistakes in writing.  I edged the card in blue metallic Marvey pen.

This next card is for Father's day which here and in Australia is 6th Sept.  I have to get this posted off to my Dad in Australia this week.  I have just got the Dots and Flowers design block stamp so decided to give it a go.  I stamped it in Aged Mahogany Distress ink on a dark cream card.  I used Shari's sketch from last week as my design inspiration.  The scalloped oval was cut out and inked with the distress ink as were the edges of the panels.  The small star from HA CL180 (Happy Messages) was used with the sentiment from that set.
Well thanks for stopping by and big thanks to all of you who leave me such lovely comments. I do appreciate them.
