Before and After
Saturday, September 13, 2008
I am working on cards for my end of the month workshop and to sell in an upcoming craft bazaar. I came up with this one last night and totally love it! The design is a copy of Angela Jones I found on Splitcoast stampers. Then I mixed up the colors with Baja Breeze, Certainly Celery, Almost Artichoke, Very Vanilla, and discontinued SU paper- The card is very soft and restful looking. Even though I tried to alter the photo, I don't think the pic gives you the soft feel of the colors.
My boys are camping this week end, so my plans are to stamp all day! Keep checking back for more ideas!

I took a break from picking faucets, doors, brick and shingles, and thinking about how I want the cabinets to look to play in the color inspiration at www.kwernerdesign. It was a relief. Check out the house progress. At first I didn't really like the card I stamped. but it is starting to grow on me. I was trying some background techniques, and this one is Faux Linen. The bird is stamped in Burgundy on glossy paper then sanded vertically and horizontally until the gloss is gone. Then I sponged Soft Sky over the whole paper. I think it should show up better, so next time I will try higher grit sandpaper. In person it looks much better. For my next trick I cut the back off one of the new flower brads and glued it to the top of the bow square.
I appreciate you looking. Let me know what you think!
