Technique Tuesday

Sending Smiles...

 

Today's Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is Make it Colorful - fun right?  My project features the Mama Elephant's Up and Away set and some soft ink blending.  

I may have mentioned before that I have really been working on my ink blending a la Laura Bassen. She does a beautiful job.  I really fight having those round ink blobs because I get too crazy.  Anyway, Laura Bassen did a lesson on ink blending for the last OCC Background Check.  Specifically, I wanted to work on blending in the center of the card.  I was very pleased with the result but I need to keep practicing. 

The cute monkey and umbrella from Mama Elephant Up and Away are colored with copics and cut with the matching dies.  The sentiment is from the same set.  The stitched lines across the bottom of the card are from the Technique Tuesday In Stitches set.

Turn 29 Again!

Hello all!  Today's card was created for the Simon Says Challenge...Let's Have a Laugh.  The focal image is from Technique Tuesday Turn 29.  It's a super fun sentiment and I love the 'keep calm" theme.  I tested my engineering skills and made a window for the sentiment stamped on the inside of the card.  Not too hard once I thought about it a little bit!  Anyway, here's the card!

29 Again

 

  • Inks:  Hero Arts Forever Green Shadow Ink
  • Paper: My Mind's Eye On the Bright Side One
