Midnight Madess # 63

It is tuesday again - and that means Midnight Madness! We are doing the "your choise" as always - make it fancy, clean and simple, or somewhere in-between.
Here are the sketches - aren't they great?

Enter one style or both this week.

Just have fun and come play with us :)

Our MMSC62 Remarkables Awards this week go to...

I could not make up my mind this week and ended up making two cards... I can tell it is vacationtime! But there is something about these cards that worries me a little - they are both pink.... Please keep an eye on me - if this continues I beg you to call the Nuttyhouse and have me admitted! Ok?

Card # 1

For this card I have used D'Amore Allure image Doris Mae - isn't she great? She is so beautiful!

I have colored Doris Mae with watercolorpencils and added just a hint of Stickles to the creases of her dress.

Just wanted to show you some details - her you can see the butterflies among the roses and the Stickles on her dress.

Card #2

My second card is made with a digi from Lil' Diva stamps. This stunning bride is called Goth bride, but I really don't see the Goth in her.

Quite a lot of flowers going on there - again *LOL*

The bacground stamp is from Layers of Colors - the Joyful Noise set. I stamped it in silver and then popped the bride up on foamdots. I did not color the bride, but i added some silver along the creases on her dress and then went over it with Stickles.

A little close up of the flowers.

Girlfriend, these are BOTH spectacular cards and I don't think there are too many flowers at all. The more te better for my taste!!! Great work lady! Blessings, Tracy

Ildiko said...

Wow they both gorgeous. Nothing wrong with pink. I love the images and the flowers are gorgeous. Thx playing along with J.I this week.

Jan said...

these flowers are gorgeous and I love everything about your cards!

pam124 said...

Gunn, 2 cards and you and Linda are the faves??? That's it, next week I'm going to topple you both with 3 cards!! You're lucky it's summer and I don't have extra time on my hands, or I'd be working at that 3 cards as we speak!! LOL!

Gunn, what words can I use to express how beautiful your cards are. They are so distinctive and so perfectly crafted with the utmost of care to each detail. You are amazing with an array of flowers and I love your added pins and butterfly and that little silver flower in the corner. I love your vintage feel and distressing.

The 2nd card you did was fantastic as I looked at that image and wondered what I could do with it. Looks like you had no trouble at all here. It is so elegant and classy and YUMMO flowers. You did it just right to put the focus on that beautiful image.

You are one talented lady and next week's card for me will not be a CUTESY card. I don't really make CUTESY either, but I make what I'm given to use. I have learned a lot from it and enjoyed it, so that's a good thing.

Sorry to ramble, but with 2 amazing cards, what else am I supposed to do?

Pat (mspfd) said...

Both of your cards are absolutely gorgeous. Love both the vintage image and modern bride -- your designs are fabulous. The coloring of your vintage image is awesome, so soft and lovely What did you use to blend your watercolor pencils that did not cause the image's ink to bleed?

PS. Thanks for leaving such a lovely comment on my card. The flourish and sentiment is part of the design of the paper I used.

Tracey said...

Wow! Gorgeous cards Gunn, love the beautiful flowers :)

Hope you're having a great weekend.


Holly said...
