I have been having fun trying out the techniques from the online card class.
With this card, I cut a stencil from acetate with my Cricut. The technique was to stamp through the stencil which I did on the "leaves". I'm not sure there is actually a flower in this image but I used Distress Inks to color it that way.
This technique was to use a stencil and then move it to make a secondary design. My order from JoAnn's came yesterday with this Heidi Swapp stencil so I could try it out. It's not exactly what I thought it would look like and I need to use a lighter hand when inking but I love the technique. The "hello" and sentiment are from PTI.
I also have a card for the Seize the Sketch challenge.
Nothing like calling the sketch up on the screen to realize you left off something. That large element. Oh, well. It wouldn't have fit with my card idea and at least I have one more valentine done.
See what I mean? The little flag where the large element should go has the sentiment on it (already printed on the paper) and I glossed the heart to make it stand out.
Thanks for stopping by to visit. I should be able to get more cards done today as the prediction of 5 or more inches of snow will keep me in.
