Ink it Up!

I have inky fingers today! I have created two cards using the same techniqe and the same sketch. For the Just Us Girls Challenge #  they want you to use the collage stamping technique. You can find how to do it here. This was a fun technique. My first card is (of course) a baby girl card! Here it is:
The paper is Basic Grey. I used my distress inks. The stamps are Hero Arts, StampinUp, and Royal Brush Mfg. The embossing folder is Tim Holtz and the punch is Martha Stewart. I added pink raindrops. Here are the challenges:
Just Us Girls #119  -Collage Stamping Technique
Sketch Saturday #190
Stampin' Sisters in Christ #122- Something new-used a new technique
Stamptacular Sunday #147-Texture
Stampin' for the Weekend #24-Out with the Old- I've had these stamps for a while and I pulled out my distress inks that I hardly ever use! 

I also wanted to enter The Play Date Cafe so here is the card for that one using the same technique
The paper is K&Co. The stamps are StampinUp, Hampton Arts, Penny Black, and Alphabet Pixie. The punch is Martha Stewart and I added gold diamond shaped brads. I embossed the crown with gold
