Digital Two for Tuesday 21

This week I have chosen two fun retro images from the twenties for you to play with. Our amazing designer Darlene has created two cards using them. I love her use of color in her designs and her mixture of papers.

Her first creation (Enjoy the Simple Things in Life) is A-6 in size ... papers used are SU Very Vanilla, Garden Green & Creative Memories Green Gingham. She used a Nestabilities scallop square die to cut the Garden Green panel then outlined the scallops using a Gold Pilot Marker. After coloring my image using Prismacolor markers and Prisma pencils, she layered it in behind the Garden Green panel using dimensional tape to pop up the green panel. Her sentiment is by Hero Arts and after stamping with Versafine black ink and embossing with Detail Clear embossing powder, She cut out the pieces and attached them in random.

Her second creation is also A-6 in size. Papers used are SU Very Vanilla which she has sponged the edges using Ranger Antique Linen distress ink, Garden Green and Daisy D's designer paper. Her image was colored with Prismacolor markers and Prisma pencils. She distressed the edges and added a band of cotton lace ribbon from JoAnn's. The spoon, fork & seasoning can are from a Crafty Secrets set called Kitchen Classics. They were stamped using Versafine black ink ... the seasoning can was also colored using Prismacolor markers and they were all cut out using my Fiskars swivel craft knife. Creative Memories silver and copper pens were used to color in the pot & utensils on the stove.
Please be sure to check out her blog: Dar's Crafty Creations
