Krafty Guest Contest - Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps

Hello Everyone!
I'm going to be really honest here... I've been very apprehensive about submitting for the Krafty Guest Contest over at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.  Mostly because I was feeling I could not compete with the AMAZING things I see by their design team.  However... :) I have decided to GO FOR IT!

I actually designed 3 cards and then chose two of them for the contest but I will share all of them here.  I'm really excited about this opportunity, please leave a comment and let me know what you think.

Here we go...
Card #1: "Cow's it going?"
I stamped the images and colored them with Copic markers.  I used a blue card base  and the background was done with Tim Holtz Distress Oxides on watercolor paper... I just love those Oxides, they are AMAZING! I die cut the sun and little clouds and positioned them with the fussy cut images and popped up the puppy & cloud to complete the scene. Lastly I added some glossy accents to the milk bottle (unfortunately it's difficult to see in the picture).

I used the following stamp from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps:

Here's Card #2: "Rocker Chick"
I stamped the Rocker Chick and colored her with Copic markers.  I chose a black card base and added a background created with Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks on watercolor paper. I die cut the motorcycle on marble black card stock.  I also used glitter paste on watercolor paper (a mixture of pink/purple/gold) and then used a die cut to cut out the wings, as I wanted them to sparkle. Next I added the motorcycle to the background, added the wings to the Rocker Chic and then popped her up so that she would stand out from the background.  Lastly, I stamped the sentiment.

I used the following RETIRED stamp from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps:

Here's Card #3: "Sandy Seawater"
I stamped the images and colored them with Copic markers.  I used a blue card base  and the background was done with Tim Holtz Distress Oxides on watercolor paper. I selected a taupe card base, added the background and then placed the trimmed colored image on top.  Lastly, I added some Nuvo drops (morning dew) for bubbles to finish it up.

I used the following stamp from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps:
