CCC Challenge meets ROP Challenge

Okay, so today I have quite a long post for you!! :) I have two cards to show you: One for the Cupcake Craft Challenge DT and the other one for Roses on Paper.
This one is for CupcakeCC. This week we have another lovely sketch to follow,made by talented Lauren. It is a simple sketch which can easily be multi embellished as one wishes.

Earlier this week I saw this ribbon blossom tutorial at Splicoast Stampers; and at first I said to myself.. it's huge for a card.. and it seems complicated. And I just read through it and moved on. But when I was deciding what colours would I base my card on, and found the DP I wished to use, my ribbons kept coming to my mind, and that tutorial was tempting me more and more! :) Then to top it all I was blog hopping through the challenge blogs, and Magnolia vs Stampavie's theme this week is.. show us your bows!! And I decided to get out from my comfort zone and try it out! :)

This would be perfect to enter it for that challenge! That was the real excuse behind it all!! :) Sometimes we get stuck and it takes us a while to plunge into something we don't usually do.. but then it gets really fun! To say it all.. then I couldn't find quite a lot of ribbons that had the same width, and was going to let it go .. again.. but then I decided to try it with different ribbon widths (here I used 30) :0) I like the finished result!

If you'd like to give it a go you'll find the tutorial here:

I used Tilda with Rose; an image that darling Summer had sent me prior to inviting me to join her Design Team :) Thanks sweetie. I inked it up with Distress Ink, and some water colour as well. White gel pen for accents.
The gem swirl is made by myself and I added Crystal Clear on Tilda's Rose.

The second card is for Roses on Paper Challenge Blog.

This week it's Challenge number 4, and we have a sketch designed by lovely Anki.Also Anki wished that we use spring colours in our creations. So I chose the pink, white and green as main colours.

I used this Sarah Kay image this time.. so tender and sweet! I coloured the image with a lot of patience and care, using watercolour, and gel pens for the delicate designs. Here we have a nursery rhyme which speaks of a small girl which sings about her beautiful doll, who has rosy cheeks, blue eyes and she says that her mum used to dress it up for her in the same colours as the girl's.. with the same fabric she used to sew her child's dresses. We all learn it when we are young; and pass it on to our young ones. So I decided to make the doll's clothes similar to the girl's! :)
This card has quite a lot of layers, but I love layers; so again this was fun for me :)

I will be listing the materials for both cards below, highlighting the materials that can be purchased from lovely Summer at Roses on Paper.

Don't forget to check my fellow DT members' blogs from both challenges. They all did stunning cards.. again! :) As for our roses on Paper challenge, don't forget that you have two weeks from today to enter your creation; and that there will be a prize for the winner..

They're both just beautiful! I love the bow and the colors for Tilda with a Rose are perfect! And I love the sweetness of the Sarah Kay. So delicate and girly. Just love them both!

Rosette, I LOVE both cards but I really love the Tilda with rose image. That is so adorable and what a fantastic job you did coloring it. Your bow is fabulous and I love how you decided to challenge yourself to try something new. You know I love to challenge myself. I think it is important to always try new things. I can't wait to see your next card! I always look forward to new posts on your blog.
