BC82 - Same but different

Blogger's Challenge #82 is titled same but different. You can keep some elements the same, but need to change some things (i.e. the stamp set) I opted to use the same layout, but changed everything else.



This first card is a thank you card. I used Tilda from the Winter Collection. I used a mask to stamp her on top of the books. I love the way this turned out. I used Copics to color the image. I am learning shading on the I Like Markers blog, so there is some shading on this image. For the sentiment, I used Riveting (retired) from Stampin' Up! I used lots of layers to help it stand out. I used Prima flowers and Crystal Effects dyed with reinker down the side. The cardstock and paper is from Stampin' Up! (Bella DSP, Kiwi Kiss, Pink Pirhouette, Red Riding Hood). I should note that the other thing I changed was the size of the card. This card is 8-1/2 x 5.5.



For this second image, I opted to use the same layout, and changed everything else. I actually colored this image a while back when I first received it, but never got the elements together to create the card. I decided to use this challenge to complete it. This is bad, but I don't remmber for sure what medium I used for coloring. I believe I had just received my first Copics, and this was an experimental project. However, I could be wrong. Again, I used Primas for the flowers. I used some baubles I had around for years for the "drops" down the side. This is the standard card size (4-1/4 x 5-1/2) with the fold at the top instead of down the side.

I hope you have a great weekend. See you Monday!
