Inky Impressions 1st Design Team Call

Happy Friday Everyone!!

Inky Impressions is coming out with what promises to be a FANTASTIC line of stamps from the previews that we have been shown so far!!

They are having an extension on their 1st EVER Design Team Call!
Go to the Inky Impressions Blog and check out the details!!!

I created the following two cards for my Design Team Application:

Angel On The Moon - Image By Victoria Case

I had a lot of fun creating this card!  I took the colors from the image and then matched my elements to it - kind of backwards, but it worked for me this time!
The patterned paper was from a Paper Stack and it has no info on the back.
I used Prismacolor pencils and odorless mineral spirits to color it in, blending the colors to get shadows and depth.  I only had pastel blue flowers, so I chalked them with a teal color to match the angel's dress. It's a much closer match in real life.  I also chalked some white lace with pink and yellow to tie it in with the warm colors.  There is a piece of mulberry paper that you can see peeking out at the edges to give it that soft, ephemeral quality.
To finish it off, I added pastel purple glitter to the wings and on the moon I added some Yasutomo shimmery paint in gold.

Here is a close up of the image.  I don't know it it will come over on the blog, but on my screen where it is giant, you can see the delicate shimmer.

Party Dragon image by Lelo
On this card I did a simple, more clean look to really focus the eye on the colored image.
All the paper is card stock from Archivers.  I ran the green through my cuttlebug with the Tiny Mosaic embossing Folder.
Again, I used my Prismacolor pencils and OMS.
The flower accents are "Brides" confetti from Michael's and the ribbon was a Christmas ribbon from Hobby Lobby.
I finished off the wings, tail and ears of the dragon with a pastel green glitter

Here is a close up of the coloring detail.

I just love how these cards came out - they are very different in their style, but each makes me happy!

Thanks for considering me for your design team.
I have been stamping for over 10 years, but only really seriously for the last 4 years or so.
I have only just decided to apply to be on design teams, and I am eager to be part of yours!
I have an account at both Papercraft Planet and Splitcoast Stampers, but I have not posted on either yet.

If a larger image is needed, please let me know and I can send it in e-mail.

Both the cards you created are very nice. If I had a design team, I'd want you as a part of it! Good luck, though I think you are a shoo-in!
