These three cards were made with images received in a swap. I colored them all with watercolor markers.
First up is a package and a stamped greeting (which came to me that way). I did add lines under the present to anchor it. The bow is actually from the stamp catalog as the present originally came with a flower (!) on top. I layered with a range of pink cardstocks.
Then we have a range of sweet cake temptations. This also came with the sentiment so I just cut it in a block, rounded the corners and layered with matching pink and blue.
Of the three, I like this one best. These cakes came stamped one beside the other - boring spacing, no focus. I used a square punch to liberate them from their neighbors and a corner punch to relax them a bit. They were intentionally punched off center for interest. A band of green shimer anchors them to the blue cardstock. A greeting was stamped onto the folded card base.
In the end, they are still three cakes lined up in a row, but now they have a little party goin' on.
