Flowery cards!

After seeing all the fabulous cards posted using the Altenew " Beautiful Day" stamp set I knew I had to have it.  At last it has come and I couldn't wait to ink it up.  For this first card I have stamped and embossed in gold and then fussy cut all the images.  I then stamped the flower with distress inks and coloured the remaining elements with Copics.  The sentiment die is by Simon Says. I am really pleased with this stamp set and know I will be using it loads!!!

I am adding this card to three challenges, the first at the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge "For a Special Lady"  The second is the Simon Says Flickr Group challenge#66  "Colouring" and lastly the Flickr Group Love Handmade Cards "Spring" Challenge.

For the second card I have stamped onto water colour paper and coloured with my Zig Markers, again the sentiment die is by Simon Says. This card is also for the Simon Says Flickr Challenge and the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge.

It really is Spring like here today the sun is shining and its a beautiful day,so I thing I shall be in the garden this afternoon.

Have a great weekend.

These are beautiful!! I just can not get a soft look with the Zigs... everything seems to bold and stark when I do it. Would love to watch your coloring technique.
