Similar 2 cards

Hi, there!
Today, I introduce you my 2 cards on a calm color scheme selected them myself. The one has just finished, and the other was made at the end of the last month.


This is the card, 'Hope your day shine'.
I was inspired by the following card design in the technique article section on the HA web site: Watercolor effects with Distress Inks By Shari Carroll.

*The coloring method is from Distressed Resist Technique by Jennifer McGuire on the HA blog video, and I add to color the white embossed part with several Liquid Pearls with water medium. (I sure remember this method, the Liquid Pearls with water medium was introduced by Jennifer on the HA blog in the past, but I couldn't find where it was.)

And sent this card to join the Hero Arts 'website' challenge this week (July 13th - 19th).

This is a closeup photo.
Used a pale pink Making Memories PP for the distressed resist part.

stamp used:
HA PF: You Sparkle / LL249
HA CardArt Happy wished/ K4883
HA SE: Artistic Windows / LP128

paper:Bazzil Basics CS, Making Memories PP

Ink & embossing powder:
Tsukineko VersaMark, StazOn / Timberbrown
Ranger Embossing Powder / Sea Foam
Ranger Distress Ink/ Tea Dye, Antique Linen, Spiced Marmalade, Broken China,
                          Shabby Shutters
Ranger Liquid Pearls / Petal Pink, Baby Blue, Gold

HA gemstones and Pale Pink pearls, Prima paper flower, ribbons,
MS butterfly punch

And this is the other, 'Hello card'.
 This design is the base for a card above.
I made this card at the end of last month and I sent it to one of my foreign Frickr friend. She received this already, so I posted here.
I use a distressed light pink Basic Grey paper for the distressed resist part. Also use adobe colored paper by SEI and Washi paper to have this a Japanese traditional feel.

stamp used:
HA CardArt Happy wished/ K4883
HA Sparkle Clear Simple messages / CL173
HA SE: Artistic Windows / LP128

Let me see..., I remember I use almost the same materials which I used for the 'Hope your day shine' card except the Liquid Pearls by Ranger. ;)

Thanks for looking! :)
