NO Designer Paper!

Good morning everyone and Happy Friday!

It's Alphabet Challenge time and today's letter is...
N for NO Designer Paper!

I have two cards to share with you today! :) They were created with Tim Holtz Distress Inks, the Smooshing Technique and stencils.

For my first card I used Crushed Olive, Twisted Citron and Peacock Feathers Distress Inks and the Tim Holtz Latticework stencil. I stamped the Starburst Flower image (Hero Arts) with Black Onyx ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder.
For my second card I used Squeezed Lemonade, Dried Marigold and Spiced Marmalade Distress inks and Heidi Swapp Doily Flower Stencil. The I stamped the swirls with white ink and embossed them with clear embossing powder, the butterfly was cut with a Marianne die and the entire card was spritzed with glimmer mist.
Well, there you have it... two cards without any designer papers! :) Both of these cards were so fun to make and I really like how they turned out!

Both cards are really beautiful Tammy but the first one has such a wonderful combination of Distress colours, I just love how the black stamping and dies stand out against it!
