A few more of the laser printed and sponged greeting cards

I made a few of these a while back and wanted to make more as I had all sorts of ideas of for combining the large greetings with images.  The greetings are all from Desert Diva's blog and the images are from CLKER except the cupcakes which are from Beccy's Place.    You can check out the others I made here.
For the top left and the bottom right I sponged and then added watercolour to finish off the greetings.  For the other two it was just sponging.  The large greetings are fun and I combined them with the images digitally before laser printing them on white cardstock.  After cutting them apart I sponged them in appropriate colours and then layered them on coordinating cardstock!!  Love these!!!        Therese

A graduation card that features a digital image, lots of watercolour and some beautiful butterflies

I made this card for a special person who is graduated from high school this year.  
I laser printed the greeting (DESERT DIVA - digital) large on white cardstock and added watercolour until I was happy with it!!  After it was dry I adhered the panel to a deep maroon card front.  This is a large format card.  I added three butterflies - a large copper one (SX) and yellow one (SU) which I embellished with yellow and orange and a smaller one which echoes the copper of the large one.  I received this on in a swap so I am not sure of the maker.  I tied cording to the two smaller ones to create antenna.  I mounted them with 3D foam tape.  Really happy with how this one turned out!!
