Variations Week: Kym's View

 It is time for Variations Week over at the Sweet Pea Stamps.  This is the week in the month when the whole Design Team have the same image and make cards/creations to share with you all.

This month the image we are using is "Rose" by Concetta Kilmer.  It is available as a digital stamp.
I have coloured the image in with my Graph'it pens.  The backing papers I was given.  I have used my heart border mask and used a black Pan Pastel through it and then sprayed the card with Crafter's Companion Spray and Shine.  I love the effect this gives a project but even spraying outside and leaving in the garage overnight it still smells and makes me cough.  I have finished the card off with a sentiment, Tim Holtz die-cut flowers, pearl brads and a flower/ribbon embellishment that I must have had for 3-4 years!!
Here is another card I have to share with you today.  Valentine's Day will soon be upon us but I think this card could be used anytime to show someone some love.  I have used a Sweet Pea Stamps image by Conie Fong called "Bella".  It is available as a digital stamp and a rubber stamp.

I have coloured the image in with my Graph'it pens.  The backing papers I was given.  I have used my new large dots embossing folder that I got from my son for Christmas.  You'll see this folder a lot as I love it.  I have finished the card off with some ribbon, paper flowers which I have coloured with Graph'it pens, gem brads and a Craftwork Cards die-cut sentiment.
