Labor day weekend cards

I started this card for the Blue challenge on Wednesday stamper but posted a different card for that. I finished it today.

The main image is a gorgeous stamp by Olive Wimple that I stamped on matte card stock using majestic blue Versafine ink because I wanted to be able to capture all of the details. I embellished with some Prima blossoms that I brushed with iridescent medium. I'd watered it down a bit, but I think next time I'll water it down even more for a more subtle effect.

This next card is another one that's looking toward fall.

The main image is by Impression Obsession, stamped in permanent black ink and then colored with Prismacolor and Copic markers. I used marker paper, and it does make a big difference in how these inks act. They stay on top of the paper longer so that they can be blended nicely with the blending marker. The other stamp images are by Victorine Originals. The patterned card stock is by K and Company.

Ahhh, it's nice to have some extra time to stamp.
