(Two for One!) and more...


It's time again for the
 Sentimental Sundays 
challenge. 

This week our challenge to you is to make a
card or project using the theme
#123 Anything Goes!!!


this is going to be a long post so hang in there....

I was able to get two cards completed
using the same image & a sentiment...
and... keeping them very simple (CAS)...
I'm quite happy with the results...

so here's the first...

Be Yourself-
On a 5x7 craft cardstock,
I used the Sunflowers image
(available here or here)
colored with Spectrum Noir
(FL2, OR2/3, GB6/7, JG1/2, DR2/4 & LG5)
cardstock with a technique for the
5x7 background from
using the Spectrum Noir markers to create it.
to complete the look...

Add a Splash...

Based on a 6x6 cardstock,
I used the Sunflowers image
(available here or here)
colored with Spectrum Noir
(FL2, OR2/3, GB6/7, JG1/2, DR2/4 & LG5)
cardstock using a very straight forward 
design layout principle for the 
6x6 background of the card, 
to complete the look...
the only minor difference is the size of the image, 
with this one being a bit smaller.



Now these cards also include two new items for me...
more of the Spectrum Noir markers and the 
I was looking forward to printing & trying the paper and it is a gem to work on...the markers go on super smooth, 'ahem' Ultra Smooth (LOL)
and minimal bleed through on the backside.  I was able to feed the paper easily thru my inkjet printer and I did miss a step in the process.  I usually heat-set the inkjet print to ensure minimal movement (bleeding) of the ink image.  Aside from my oopsie, the paper performed exceptionally well.  I could easily push back any ink with the blender & even with working over and over on the paper, there was no pilling or absorption below the surface spreading the ink... 
Do I recommend the paper??? Most definitely...
and its great that it is available in 8 1/2"x11" 
and... do check out the pearlized cardstock... 
in 8 1/2x11 & 12x12...
What more could a girl ask for???
