2 Cards with two different Background I made

I missed my hubby, he was for two weeks went to Asia for a busines trip (India and Thailand)....wohooo it must be warmer than here in Germany....there he has no snow LOL I want be there toooo :)

Here is the card I made for him:

I colored the little Toucan Image (stamp from The Alley Way Stamp = Tropical Hideaway) with my Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolor in green and orange.

The Background I punched some circle and use my distressed ink sponged it in orange and green.

I made a little mistake at the right side at the time I stamped the sentiment repeatedly...also I punched one circle and put there to covered my mistake :)

Challenges for my first card are:

The Male Room: Make Your Own Background Paper

Speedy Fox and Friends: Only Sponged Circles *** I WON THIS CHALLENGE YAAAYY :) ***

My Second card I love the color combo on the challenge at  Stampin Royalti # 268:

I started make my Background with these set, as you know if I bought a Stamp, I will always use it again and again....please dont feel bored (LOL) cause I love much this Lawnfawn stamp "Argyle".

Then I stamped also my "old" (because at that time I never like having flower stamp LOL)  but "just bought" (now I need flower stamp *grinz*)  HERO ARTS Poppies stamp set and colored with this two colors from Kuretake Watercolor set (see the color blended it self ...I love this Watercolor set so much :) )

I try to follow the color as much as I can: (I am sorry with the Photo at night... its not so perfect)

I made the sentiment tag by my self by cutting the green and colored (pink) paper and stamped Happy and Spring:

I choose also the tiny dots sent from Vicki in USA...dear Vicki many many thanks for this sweet and cute tiny dots from SU :) I love it much :) 

I am not experted at coloring with water color and never try it before but this Kuretake Ganzai Tambi Watercolor set really help me much :) you can believe me...that I was not giving any effort to colored this poppies flowers.

This is the whole Photo of my card:

  1. Your sponged circle card is adorable! Thank you for sharing with us at MFP SF&F Challenge.

  2. I love both of your cards, Monika. I spent my first three years of life in Thailand. I don't remember much, but have pictures. By the looks of the photographs, it's very hot and dry there. I love how beautiful the jungle makes as a photo backdrop. I still have relatives in Thailand, so one of these days, I will make a trip to visit them. Hope your husband return safely to you and your family. Happy day to you, Monika!

  3. Your poppies are beautiful, Monika! I'm sure making both your bright cards helped to deal with the cold winter for just a little while! Thanks for joining us at the Simon Says Stamp Wedesday challenge!
