Sea Stamps and Color Throwdown #4

Today I'm sharing a card I did for Kerry's color throwdown, I really loved these colors together so I went through my paper stash and pulled out some like shades to give this one a go! I'm using a great TAC set called "Sea Stamps" that is retiring and on sale for 35% off through 5/29. I love this vintage angel fish, I googled angel fish so I would have an idea how to color this little guy... I really had no idea there were so many different types of angel fish out there! I think it turned out pretty cool and I have another Father's Day card done to boot!

I thought I would get inky and play along with this weeks new sketch for A Card A Day in May over on the Savvy Projects blog. I just got my hands on these beautiful new spellbinder dies and knew they would be perfect for this sketch! I also used one of my favorite A hostess sets Swirled Spring Life, you can purchase it for $5.17 through 5/29. I hope you have a chance to check out the great new line up of designers for the week and be inspired to try out one of the many sketchs for May.

This is another Sunflower card I designed for a virtual swap hosted by Kerry Urbatch, She will be putting together a PDF file with several samples using this set after the 18th. So check back if you would like the file. This set is the featured stamp of the month and I have really enjoyed creating with it. I did a little paper piecing on this one using TAC's free black & white download papers. The image was colored with copics and distressed with cognac ink and embellished with a twill tape bow & button... I really love the shabby chic feel of this one!
