Stamped images

I wanted to share a couple cards with you today.
 
 I used stamp images to create my cards.  First off, some great medallions from Wplus9 Designs. I love "doily" style images.  I used the simple color combination challenge at The Play Date Cafe for my card.
 What is fun is that I really could have made this card any color after I stamped the two shapes of the medallions. I did emboss the images with clear embossing powder.  That makes the image stable for using water, etc.  I used a watercolor crayon and scribbled that in the middle of the images and then used a water brush to finish the look.  I then sprayed the entire card with Shimmerz Paintz Coloringz.  It was the exact color to work with the color challenge.
 Here is The Play Date Cafe combo.
 Next up, my Card Positioning Systems card for this week.  All month long our sponsor has been The Stamps of Life and my main focus was her great hexagon stamp set.  The sentiment and the second sentiment are from another set by her.
 I just love the different patterns she has for her hexagons and I used one of Stephanie Barnards Colorbox stamp pads too. 
Here is the CPS sketch we are working with.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)

Great cards, Linda! I absolutely love your doily card for the Play Date Cafe color challenge. Such a gorgeous combo, and I just adore your design. The gems are the perfect finishing touch. And lovely take on the CPS sketch this week. Another great color combo and I love the hexis. Really fun sentiment, too. :)
