Summer into fall, 2nd post today

I have been rooting through my stamp drawers and pulling out stamps that haven't seen a good inking in so long. Starburst lace from Hero Arts is one of those I rescued from ink neglect. CASE Study is featuring Jennifer Maguire again this week as our inspiration. Here is this week's card inspiration-

Bright colors are my favorite. I am trying to keep summer in my heart and mind as long as possible, but it got so chilly last night, I had to snuggle into the covers. It reminds me that fall is not that far away.

Therefore I went out on a limb and created this similar card for the challenge at Inkspirational

They had this card as our inspiration and it fit right in with my idea for the challenge at Inkspirational.

A quick idea of what I did, I stamped starburst lace with white pigment ink and embossed with white powder. I took water based markers- distress, tombos, and momento markers and colored over the image and wiped off excess ink with a soft rag. A fun technique that worked great with this stamp.

I am hard pressed to decide which one I like best.

I hope that I haven't violated any challenge rules by putting 2 cards for 2 separate challenges but they were related, so I didn't want to break up the family. :)

Both these cards are stunning. I love the bright colours of the first one but have to say the tomes of your card for Inkspirational is my favourite. I love the kraft base and cream colours and the use of vellum, all makes for an outstanding card. Thanks for joining us at Inksprational
