Two cards for Paper Players

Hello and welcome back!  Today I have two cards to share that were made with this weeks sketch challenge at Paper Players.

I thought this was a great sketch for a quick, clean and simple Christmas card.  The focal point is perfect for the cute skater image from For the Birds stamp set.

I colored this first image with reinkers and a Blender pen.  I added a bit of Silver Dazzling Details to the pom pom on top of the hat to add to the sparkle provided by the Red and Silver Glimmer paper.  Everything was adhered to a base of Under the Table dsp.

This next card has a few differences from the first.  I used Blendability markers to color the bird image rather than ink, and added a cute wood snowflake from the Many Merry Stars Simply Created kit.  I decided I could afford to use one more on a card versus on a star from the kit (there are 21 wood stars included in the kit in 3 different sizes).  This card also uses Under the Table dsp, just a different color and design.

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit!  I hope you'll leave a comment as well - I always love to hear from you. For those in the US, I hope you have a lovely Thanksgiving tomorrow, filled with good food and great company!  Be sure to use the link above to visit the Paper Players and check out all the super inspiration, plus there is still time to join in if you want to play along.

Absolutely adorable cards, Stef! I love both of them. They may be clean and simple, but each one has its own little "wow" factor! Thanks for playing with The Paper Players!
