I made a few more cards yesterday. Here's the first one. This was done using the Monet technique. In the past, I have been unsuccessful with this technique. The key is patience! You have to get the paper to dry just so before stamping. I really wanted to use some Hodgepodge Hardware-Brass on here, but my whole tin is MISSING!!!! How does one lose something so large and noisy??? I have torn apart my crafting space for the last day, and nothing! I used a die-cut instead, which worked nicely. I used autumn leaf prints and aida cloth on here.
My second card is a totally different style. I combined 2 of the challenges for this one. I also tried a new colour combo that I might not have otherwise and I quite like it(mustard, turquoise, wasabi, pomegranate, and chocolate). I used Pick a Petal and So Many Sayings on here. I wanted matching designer paper, so I made my own using various circle punches. I don't really have any great tips on how to get such straight cuts for "out of box" style. My craft mat and blade weren't nearby, so I just drew a very faint line in pencil. Using decent light and a steady hand, I cut it out with scissors.
