Try A New Technique Challenge Cards

YAH! I made it home in time to catch the last 20 laps of the Nascar race!
MUCH better finish for Jeff Gordon this week....3rd!
This morning I was able to make a couple of cards for todays Try a New Technique. Today you were to use two or more Designer Papers on your card.
Lucky for me I LOVE doing that...haha!
This first card is a 5.25 x 5.25. I stamped the images on Shimmery White Cardstock with Versafine Black. I then watercoloured with my aqua painter and re-inkers.
Since I still had a little time before going to the school to mark math and spelling tests I thought I would use up these little scraps. Fits into the challenge too! This card measures 4.25 x 4.25.
Thanks for stopping by today!

On another note...
Paper Pretties is having a BIG SALE....be sure to check it out! You never know what you may find ;)

Love both of these -- I love cutie pie DP too!!

I know you are a NASCAR fan, but Jeff -- why not Jimmy or Junior? Just kidding, my kids love Jeff. My husband works for Lowes, so they love Jimmy too.

Wow these are just so cute. I love what you did with the squares and bee on the second card. That is my favorite bee stamp. I use it all the time. I'm going to case this card - I just love it. :)

Both cards are fantastic! I love how you used the DP in both! You rocked the challenge!
I didn't stamp yesterday. After cleaning and visiting with my neighbor, I (don't hate me) layed out in the backyard for a little while. I LOVE sunshine! We had a great sunny morning. Not so much today. Nasty rain storms....but still warm.
