Two New Cards & A New Technique

Hi everyone!  Hope your day is going well.  I have a new card  that I created for a couple of challenges.  I also have a new card for Let's Make Greeting Cards.  

Challenge Entry Card
The first challenge is over at and they want you to use Kraft paper somewhere on your card.  The other is at Cardztv, and she wants there to be any "critter" on your card. 
The card is standard A2 size, I used Cosmo Cricut's Evangeline patterned paper, Sizzix and a Cuttlebug embossing folder.  The cut is from Cricut cartridge Kate's ABCs that I actually just got yesterday in the mail.  I added some Glaze to the butterfly's wings, flowers and collar along with some glitter glue on the stems & part of the collar.  Then I also added some Stickles to the circle die cut.

Newest Card For Let's Make Greeting Cards
This card I used colored pencils and instead of using gamsol to blend, I used a small amount of baby oil soaked into a make-up sponge.

I colored my image and then with a blender tip I would take a small dab of the baby oil and blend it into my image.  This technique works great!

I hope you liked the cards I made as well as the baby oil technique.  Thank you for stopping by!  Take care & have a great rest of your Tuesday.
