PTI and Winnie & Walter

Finished a couple cards for 2 of my favorite companies:  PTI and Winnie & Walter.
First is Kraft & Colored Pencils for PTI MIM.  I only have a few good pencils since I don't do much coloring of images & they weren't the colors I wanted.  
The Take Three sets have small designs which I thought might hide my lack of coloring skills--haha! I used the matching die cut to line up the images in my Mini MISTI & heat embossed them in white.  I used a couple pinkish & green Crayola pencils. Hard to tell in the photo, but I used more of the dark pink for the center flower.  For the sentiment (also in the MISTI) I stamped in Versafine Vintage Sepia, then in Autumn Rose & then again in the first ink to get a custom color close to my colored pencils. Decided against bling & simply tied on a twine bow.  I'm also entering HLS CAS ChallengeThe Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge & Word Art Wednesday.

Next is another card for the W&W 3rd BD Bash.  I'm entering the Mood Board Challenge with Heather P.  The gorgeous pink Daisy immediately grabbed my attention.  This is only my second card using In Bloom: Addie's Garden, so only one of these stamps had been previously inked.
I used the MISTI  so I could stamp multiple times using Versafine Smokey Gray to get the intensity I wanted.  Less intimidating to color only 1 image & I hadn't done the Spotlight Technique in ages.  I used 2 pink Zigs & blended with clear Wink of Stella for a beautiful shimmer.  The circle die cut is Lawn Fawn & is popped up with black fun foam.  I sponged the Smokey Gray ink on the card front & used it to stamp the sentiment which is over-stamped in Watermark & clear embossed.  This is the first time I've used the sentiment which is in a stamp set from The Ton which Virginia included in a giveaway I won.  All the sentiments are wonderful--think I'll just leave it on my table as they'll get lots of use.  I'm also entering The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge, The Playground (circles from snippets) & Time Out.  Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.

I don't know how we got along before the Misti came along. I still don't always get things straight! Your coloring is lovely and I do like the white embossing. I like how you made your background on the second card and that pink looks terrific.

Kirsty Vittetoe said...

They are just so lovely!

Stella said...

Greta you are too hard on yourself; your colouring is perfect! Keep in mind that I created a disaster last weekend with my single flower LOL. Your second card is elegant but also has a modern touch with that sytamped background. I love that shade of gray. And that sentimentis gorgeous. I might come over to craft beside you hee hee!

Love the embossed squares on the top card, what a great way to show off the flowers.

Helen Wallace said...

Your colouring looks wonderful to me Greta. I love the lotus look flower with the elegant grey border and the trio of blooms on the first card are beautiful too. Thanks for the inspiration.

Kim Heggins said...

Two beautiful cards...just beautiful Miss Greta!

Martha said...

OH, Greta, both cards are simply beautiful. Flowers always make me smile. The second one is a show-stopper! I love it!

Cat Craig said...

Wonderful cards Greta, there is something so fun about a card with three windows...and the spotlight card is fabulous as well. The gray is such a nice change from black.

MaryH said...

Two just lovely cards. Love the trio of inchie flowers on #1, the soothing feeling of the color scheme. I really like the way you've made the background on #2, and then used one of the flowers to color as a focal point. So pretty! TFS (and I saw you in the Snippets Playground!) Hugs
