GinaK release party challenges...

Gina K designs celebrated with a release party this weekend and posted some fun challenges. I decided to take part in them and have 2 cards to share today. Both challenges were sketches. I don't have very many Gina K sets, so was quite limited as to what images I was able to use. For the first one, I used up some scraps of some old paper I have had kicking around for at least a couple of years. I coloured the main image using my prismacolour pencils and then added some "snow" using my liquid applique. I stitched all the paper down to add a "warm" feeling to the design. I added a ghost shape (Heidi Swap) snowflake and used some paint to make it a little more visible and then added this pearl brad I found in the wedding section of M's to finish it off.

For the second sketch card, I pulled out my "way to go" set
and decided to go with a very humoures Father's Day card.
I pulled out some Basic Grey patterned paper I have had
stashed for a while and went to work. I stamped the toilet and covered it with crystal effects to give it a porcelain look. I added a slit in the toilet so I could put the toilet plunger right into the "bowl". The dotted bg panel is up on dimensionals as well as the toilet. I added the crown from the retired pretty princess set and added a sentiment with the computer, unfortunately the sentiment is not very visible. It reads " KING of the castle". I finished the design off with some ribbon.
