Diva Card (CAS) and a Manly Card with many Postage Stamp

It was long time ago I never played and joined again the challenge at CASology. This week they have the theme PRETTY ooh I must join I must join..and I try my best to make my card as CAS as I can do..

Also first stamped this lovely DIVA and then I start to make my own stencil, circle, and with damask stencil I dobble it and then I sponged it with Distress ink (look picture please)

The result is one layer card (I mean two layers with the card base :))

I colored the DIVA with copic marker. Without sentiment also it can be for all occasion 

Challenges for my card are:

Time Out Challenge #44: Case this card (I dont have a nice sentiment like this card also I decided to make my background with similar color like this card from Karen.



I made also for The Male Room this card, the theme this time is : Remembrance or Sympathy, I took my Postage Stamp set from Hero Arts and took some ink with the colors Blue, Green and Brown.

I masked a bit with post it and I used only 3 pieces of Post it.

I really like the result and put the white stamped paper to the brown paper and card base is in green.

For sentiment I stamped the Hero Arts sentiment on a black paper, embossed it with white EP and finished my card with washi tape to the top and bottom area of my sentiment.

  22. Lots of great cards Monika! I just love Audrey Hepburn in the first one! Love your pretty stencilling and lovely colouring. So pretty! Thanks so much for joining us at CASology this week!!

  23. Your first card is SO stylish. Perfect for a woman for any occasion, I love to have cards like that at hand for any last minute needs. Beautiful coloring of her skin, you color really well with Copics.
    And your masculine card is so colorful and fun, with lots of details! It must have taken you quite some time to put together...

  24. I have to say, Audrey is the star of the show-- what a PRETTY card (haha)... I love it with no sentiment. And i really appreciate the way you've made your own stencil. STamped card looks so involved-- way to get inky!

  25. Your first card is so lovely and elegant, Monika! Wonderful masked stencilling! I must try this technique myself - whenever my mojo comes back! Your second card is wonderful - if I didn't know you stamped these stamps, I would think it was patterned paper - beautiful job!
