Live Love Cards Charity Drive Donations

Hello,
Welcome back! I have gotten my fingers inky a bit, and wanted to share with you a TON of cards that I created, and are donating to a Card drive! Darlene at Live Love Cards has THREE different organizations that she has spotlighted to interest members to donate their time to. I wanted to participate, and show everyone the cards I created, before I send them off. (I don't believe you need to be a member to give cards)


These two backgrounds were tucked in my "I'll do something with this someday" pile. I added the flowers and the sentiments. Mounted them on to complimentary cardstock. These are distress ink colors and spritzed with water.

Hard to tell, these are on glossy cardstock. The left card background is from En Francias from SU! Both cards are done with distress inks and the flowers and sentiments in black ink.

These two backgrounds were tucked in my "I'll do something with this someday" pile. I added the flowers and the sentiments. Mounted them on to complimentary cardstock. These are distress ink colors and spritzed with water.

These flowers are from Rubbernecker stamps, stamped on watercolor paper, and mounted.

The left butterfly is the very first stamp I purchased over 14 years ago. I have to do some digging to see if it is even produced anymore. The right butterfly is from Penny Black "Free Flight" and the flowers are Hero Arts "Wild Flower Garden". Colors are distress inks again on water color paper.

The flower on the left card is from Fiskars "Petals from Scratch" and the sentiment on both are three separate stamps that I pulled off their wooden bases. They are from INKADINKADO and Dawn Houser I combined the three words to fit the cards.The texture on the right card was smeared embossing paste. Once dried, I used distress inks.


The left card background was created with watercolor pencils. I honestly thought they would blend, and when they didn't, I was disappointed, and placed it away for another day. The effect works with the flowers and the sentiment. the right card, I did not create, I don't know who made it, it was a card front that I mounted and I am donating.
This left card is a repeat of the first card at the top of this post, I didn't want the last card to be lonely. I just may keep these two. They are so bright!

I am using a new camera, and the Florida sumshine. I am not sure about the pictures. I will contimue to pay witht the lighting.

Overall, I am very pleased with this collection, and I hope they bring smiles to many people. I need to create a box and send them off! Thanks for dropping by! More to come!
Cindy
