For May, The Stampsmith Challenge Blog is running a sketch challenge. I love using sketches to jump start my card making. I chose to use this adorable puppy image from the Stampsmith puppies sheet.

Mary Vogel Lozinak blog hop at VLVS

All stamps by Mary Vogel Loginak for Viva Las Vegastamps. For the background I used an emboss resist technique. I randomly stamped the key image in versamark and then embossed in a metallic powder. Then I applied distress stain all over the background. I stamped the cat image and colored her with copic markers. Many of Mary's circus themed images are juggling. This cat wasn't, but her paws are out and I thought she could be, so I added the rhinestones for balls for her to juggle.

Flower Card

The challenge at VLVS this month is to make a card using flowers. I used this flower image from VLVS and the emboss resist technique.
I stamped the image with versamark and embossed with green powder. I cut it with a label die and then sponged distress inks over the label. The flowers were coated with crystal lacquer. I also made a flower with a Spellbinders die and used it and some punched butterflies to embellish my card.
