Another total Eclipse

Since I had my alphabet dies out I decided to create another card using the eclipse technique. I also needed a 40th Birthday card so I decided to get out my numeral dies and use them as well.

Card #1
Created using HLS 'Born to be Wild' stamp set and Papertrey Ink's 'By the Numbers' dies.
I used a little gold mica powder mixed with water to create my splats.

Card #2
This is a second birthday card for my Mum. I wasn't completely happy with the original one so I decided to create another. I heat embossed the flower with white powder, then coloured it in with a pink polychromo pencil and gamsol. I added a bit of orange into the mix as well.

I would like to enter my cards over at the following challenges -
Card #1 - Penny Black and More (Animals, Birds, and Butterflies), Crafty Animals (Anything Goes), Seize the Birthday (All Creatures Great and Small), A Place to Start (Masculine)
Card #2Stamping Sensations (Feminine), Creations in Pink (Anything Goes in Mainly Pink), Crafty Calendar (Use Die Cuts/Punches), Happy Craft Challenge (Anything Goes)

Thanks for popping in today :)
