Playing with stamps, die cuts and some vellum

Over the last couple of days I have been playing... just for me... not for any design teams and just for a few challenges.

First card is a fun one I did with a new Art Impressions stamp I got at the Perth craft show...

I stamped the turtle stack onto some watercolour card and used my some Tombow and Distress markers to watercolour them.  Art Impressions are awesome as their packaging has the image coloured showing shading which gives a great idea on how to make them look dimensional.   I used the sentiment from the set, and also a sentiment from a little Simon Says Stamp set.   I used some retro PP for my background and layered it with some brown card and added to a cream card base.

My second card is for the Vellum challenge at A Blog Named Hero.  

this is a 3.5" x 5.5" card.  It was made as I had the scrap of PP left from another project.  I die cut a vellum circle and embossed the Hero Arts sentiment onto it.  I had the Hero Arts little bunny already cut and coloured, so it came together really quickly.  I die cut some red hearts with the Simon Says Stamp mini hearts die.   This is heading it's way to Archie, to let him know Nana and Pop miss him.
