Michael Strong Card of the Day - Friday

Last day to be card captain.  Another faux postage card.  I used Mike background Lily stamp and coloured the "stamps" in with Copics.  RV00 and RV25 for the lilies, YG63 and YG99 for the leaves and BG10 for the background.  I used the Sizzix postage die "Frames, Stamp Combo" to cut out the stamps.  The rest of it is Stampin Up! except for the tiny brads and the stamped "cancellation" lines.  The sentiment is from the stamp set "Watercolor Trio" and the script on the "stamps" is from the stamp set "Charming".

I tried it with the same background as yesterday but it was too white for me so I ended up trying grey and I liked that.

Here's the white one:

Here are a couple of cards I was going to show but liked the other ones I made more.

This is the first time I used the lily stamp set but you can tell there is glue on the "stamp" so that got rejected. and turned into the card above!

This one used the same background as the one above but didn't do it for me.  Maybe that green mat needs to be darker.

Somehow this one got lost on my computer and I just found it.  I can't believe I didn't show my little Gecko until now!

Okay that is it for my week!  Thanks for looking!  I've just got these new Dylusions sprays so I think I'm going to sign up for another week to try them out.
