Week 1 Day 2

Hi again,
This must be a record two days in a row and cards too!  This online card class really has the juices flowing.  I love trying the new things and stepping up to the challenges.

Our challenge for today was to try out one of the new techniques we learned.  I had so much fun with this card it was so easy and my vision became a reality.  YEAH!!!

The stamp I used was from Penny Black.  She is so adorable.  I water colored her and fussy cut her out.  Then I did the background.  This technique was so fun.  I used the brush strokes set from Simon Says Stamp and used my ranger distress inks to drag the images down the page.  When I finished with that I took my Butter Cup hero arts dauber and dabbed it on my craft sheet.  Misted it and then squished the paper into the color, a technique I learned from Kristina Werner.  I love how it changed the colors just slightly.  This is a great technique I love making my own paper.  Thank you Shari Carol for sharing this great technique.  Great class today!!!
