Horizontal Tiles


I originally began creating these cards for the Stampotique Designer's Challenge that started yesterday but then thought they didn't look "LOVEY" enough, so I started over.  I was very happy with how these 2 cards turned out though and wanted to share them with you.

For the first card, I chose some soft, subtle colors to use as I wanted them to shine with some Crystal Effects (hard to get a good photo of that..  I added a few buttons placed on a circle in the open space in the bottom corner (now looking I see they are crooked-yikes)

Card details:
Stamp Set: Horizontal Tiles by Stampotique Originals
Cardstock:  Kraft, Bashful Blue, Ballet Blue, Stamper's Select White
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copic markers
Accessories:  Enchanted Evening buttons, hemp twine, circle punch

For this card I added a little patterned paper onto the background along with a sentiment.  I also added some Sparkly Fluff on the wings of the dragonfly instead of crystal effects.

Card details:
Stamp Set: Horizontal Tiles & Go Confidently by Stampotique Originals
Cardstock:  Kraft, Pretty in Pink, Real Red,, Stamper's Select White
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copic markers

Hope you will join us for the Stampotique Designers Challenge with a LOVE theme this week for a chance to win some Stampotique money.
