I have been quiet here on my blog...but behind the scenes, I have plenty of ideas and projects running through my head and on my craft table.
I have enrolled in the Online Card Classes Background Check session. And I am LOVING it!! So many new ways to apply techniques that I have done.
Warning....this post may be a bit long since I am incorporating several projects into it. ;-)
These first pictures are of the backgrounds (just a few from the class).
This card, I created the background and just couldn't resist going ahead before taking a picture...
I stamped the images in Versafine Onyx Black in and added Perfect Pearls Mist.
For this card, I really didn't like the background. I didn't like the plaid stamped lines. I didn't really get the inking quite right. But after the card came together....I MUST say, I LOVE it.
I die cut the word 'You' with a Simon Says Stamp die out of the background and Neenah Solar White card stock (4 times). In hindsight, I thing I should have used black card stock instead of Neenah Solar White...but that's ok. Next time! ;-)
I also added clear Wink of Stella to the die cut for a bit of interest.
And finally, this card. This is my favorite so far!! So much interest but not too busy to distract the eye.
