Here is my first card:

and a detail shot:

I stamped the saying a second time and cut out the word Loud so that I could pop it up.  The guitar is from the Rockstar set and the cut out in the background is from the Art Philosophy cartridge.  Little bits of glitter glue in silver embellish the card at various points.

Here is the second card:
This card has a cut out of butterflies from the dotty for you paper.  I then duplicated the butterfly colors by using markers on the Just Be! stamp.  To create some movement to the card, I then took each marker and sprayed compressed air over the tip while touching it to the paper - the air fans out the ink colors.  I used the compressed air on the top and then a spatter stamp from Rockstar on the bottom.
a detail shot of the compressed aire technique:

Please keep hopping with Pamela O'Connor.
