HIMCR #188 - Erasers!

 HIMCR #188 - Erasers!
Laurie found this cute technique on Splitcoast Stampers and thought it would be a fun challenge to do here on HIMCR! Here's the link to give you some ideas: Erasers!

 
The sponsor is Scrapper's Delights!


The giveaway is 3 images of winner's choice from Scrapper's Delights
Card 1

 

Card 2

Recipe for Card 1:
I used this image before, this little girl looks just like my  beautiful daughter-in-law, Miki.
 
Image from Scrapper's Delights
Chipboard
Colored pencils or whatever you like to color with
Ribbon, buttons, action wobble
Eraser and ink or acrylic paint
Corner chomper
 
I started out using ink to make my background but I didn't like the way it looked so I re-did it with acrylic paints. Dip your eraser into the paint then apply to your card face. Use as many or as few colors as you prefer.
After coloring my image I adhered it to a small piece of chipboard and did a fussy cut. I added an action wobble because Miki likes them, I will use this card for her, no sentiment yet because I haven't decided which occasion to use it for.
I added some ribbon and buttons to the folded side. I chomped the corners.
 
Card 2:
 
Image from Scrapper's Delights
Chipboard
Cardstock (my flowered paper is from Japan)
Colored pencils or whatever you prefer to color with.
Ribbon
Eraser and inks - I used blue, red and green
Foam pads
Spellbinder's scalloped circle dies
 
I colored my image and adhered it to a thin piece of chipboard and did a fussy cut. I cut the flowered paper with the largest Spellbinder's scalloped circle dies in the package. I also cut one of chipboard and glued the 2 pieces together.
I put my die on my card face to make it easier to do the eraser inking.
After the ink dried I added a piece of ribbon. I adhered the flowered layer and my image with foam pads.
