Bicycles "A Manly" Card and Birthday Card with Butterfly in Blue

I try to make black and white and one other color card once more :) and I want to used my new SU Chase Your Dreams stamp set too. Also here is a manly card I made:

I colored my card with Grey Ink from Peerless Transparent watercolor, and the cloud I sponged with Blue Distress Ink using the Stencil from my friend Billie. The Building is SU stamp and the Bike is my old old collection stamp from Hero Arts. I colored the building also a bit with grey ink.

Lovely challenges I love to join with this card are:

My second card I used my long time not used Stencil butterfly. I really love this stencil and thats why I bought but I just have time today to sponged ink to this stencil.

I masking the paper that this area stay white, I also spray and splayh the water on the sponging area. I blend two different blue Distress Ink for my card this time.

Here is the finish card, I only added the Sentiment Die to make this stay Clean.

For accent I added 3 scoring stripes on the top and bottom area:

The die cut sentiment and the scorelines are all that was needed to create a wonderful card, my friend!!! Both lovely cards!!!
