High Hopes Challenge #10 ~ Metal Madness

Today is Sunday, so it's High Hopes Challenge time. I have a little bit changed on my card style... actually this is my favorite techniques...distressed!! I distressed all the edges of the patterned paper with Worn Liptick distress ink, I also crumpled the patterned paper and inked the same ink too, looks cool, huh? I used some metal embelishments to decorate the card as the challenge is Metal Madness.
Hope that you like my card as well:-)) Please head over to High Hope Blog to see more DT's creation and participating on the challenge:=))
Supplies Used: High Hopes rubberstamps
Patterned Paper: Basic Grey
Copic Ciao Markers, Basic Grey Rub-on,Ranger Distress Ink,metal embelishments from my stash.

Sarah Kay~ Make your own happiness+ Friday Sketchers

Yup, I know how to make my own happiness...making card is one of the solution, and it's a therapy indeed, when I feel upset I will make my cards to make me cheer:=)) Today is my productive day, I had made one tag and two cards, one from Magnolia, one from Sarah Kay and one for High Hopes rubberstamps, I can't show you HH card now, it's for Sunday challenge, so please wait until Sunday, OK ?

Well, back to Sarah Kay, I want to make this card for a long time with this image, I just know it's Sarah Kay , but don't know the title of it, this was gift from Lilian Tan, thank you very much.

I colored the stamped image with copic ciao markers, colored pencils, blended with sansodor and paper stump, I am glad with the final result:=))

I entered this card to Friday Sketchers, which I followed the sketch by
Carole from England.It's a beautiful sketch, thank you Carole.

Thank you for looking and hope that you have a great weekend.
Supplies Used:
Stamped image ~Sarah Kay, Hero Arts stamp~make your own happiness
Patterned Paper: Basic Grey
Flowers: Prima Marketing.
Copic Ciao markers, ribbon from my stash.


我非常喜欢Sarah Kay的印章, 一直一来由于忙者做设计其他公司的卡片就没有机会尝试用此印章来做卡, 今天终于有机会了! 我用Copic ciao markers, 彩色笔以及paper stump, sansodor来混合颜色, 效果不错吧!!
纸张是用Basic Grey, 纸花用prima marketing的.我也依照Friday Sketchers的卡片挑战来做卡, 你们可以去那里看看, 找找灵感喔~
