ONLINE CARD CLASSES: STRETCH YOUR STAMPS 2

Monday, August 4, 2014

What a great first day of class! Everyone's cards were so beautiful that I wanted to try ALL the techniques and right away and even on the same card! (not).  Anyhoo, I decided to try the emboss/watercolor technique that Kristina used.  I had a somewhat different background stamp but it is not totally dissimilar in style so I thought it would work well.  I loved the colors so much that I decided to leave the image whole and not trim it down.  I die cut the "Love" die from Simon Says Stamps twice out of three matching colored scrap papers and glued together just fractionally offset.  Top layer spritzed with Heidi Swapp Color Shine.



The hearts were left over from another project and I was thinking a little rhinestone would have worked on one of them but I forgot to add it.
