Birthday card with Purple Flower and A Manly Card with Car

I am late to looking at challenge at TIME OUT and I realized Sandie loves Purple (and me too) ok I (must LOL) made one purple card for her birthday (once more) :) you get two cards from me dear Sandie :)

I use the stamp set from Create a Smile, the big flower and I used my new Akashiya SAI watercolor pen. The color really blended so great... I like to blend it with this pen. I only choose two different purple and here is the card I made:

For the left side I want the same color like my flower...also I took a white paper drew many line with pencil and colored with yellow and purple watercolor pen. I took the sentiment from PTI again (Kim H, many thanks for helping me to get this lovely sentiment stamp, you are really a Gem Kim)

Challenges for my card are :

For my second card I like to make a manly card and this time with my old collection of Hero Arts Sentiment (the leaves) and the Hero Arts CAR stamp.

How I made my card:

1. Stamped the car, then choose grey Watercolor pen (Akashiya SAI) and started to colored the ground. Mixed with a bit watterbrush.

2. As I dont have a big Tree Stamp also I drew with the pen the Tree by my self. The pen is really lovely it blend self and made a nice tree wow...can you see it? I am not good at painting but this pen is really helpfull seriously. 
3. Stamped the leaves with green ink and then colored the sky with light blue watercolor pen.
4. Took grey color again and drew my shadow of the car.
5. I stamped the sentiment from Create A Smile on a long blue paper. Gave the embellishment on the left side and added it with double sided tape. 
6. I added the ribbon that already have glue at the back is from Billie A my lovely friend in USA. (I never use it Billie this time is my first attempt and I love the result yay!!)

Here is the card I made:

  7. Purple is not so much of my favorite colour, but I love the look of your flower very much. I came over to comment on a different card, but then I saw this beautiful flower and wanted to let you know, that I really like how you painted it. Creative regards from stempelfrida

  8. Perfect design for Sandie. I like how you put the flower in the corner and going over the edge. The big sentiment is decorative.
    Your car design is fab, such brilliant details, the trees look very natural and great idea with the car shadow. I also like how you used ribbon on a masculine card, I might borrow this idea...
