Hearts and flowers

I missed uploading my card for the Daily Marker challenge yesterday, so I've a two-fer you this evening.  Need to get a move on though, it's movie night here and I'm getting that 'hurry up' look!

Card 1
My first card uses my new stamps from Power Poppy and the lovely sentiment from Clearly Besotted too.  I've coloured them with watercolour pencils and added a bit of bling for some sparkle.

Card 2
This card is inspired by Laura's tutorial over at Simon Says Stamp blog.  I got my one-and-only coloured ink pad out for some blending on the base and also used it to colour the pink hearts, a new first for me!.  If I had more ink pads I reckon this might be my colouring method of choice!  Oh for a bigger crafty budget ;)
My hearts are cut from funky foam and then I added some glossy accents and lots of glitter.  I also used some of the cut out hearts as little accents.
Whipper Snapper image - body coloured with watercolour pencils.  Clear gloss added to his hearts.
