It doesn't happen very often that I post something that isn't a challenge. But this is extra special because it's the cards I created as part of my homework from the Online Card Class. The class started on Monday, and I am finally doing my Day 1 Homework.
First let me say, I love, love, love this technique. I used 140 lb cold pressed watercolor paper. I know others in the class were struggling with this technique, but I did it twice without a problem. The in-house critic liked this one the best. She like the way the watercolor frames the sentiment. As you can see I used a chevron stencil. It came out very clear. I have just one little package of those enamel dots. They just aren't my style I guess. But they complemented my card nicely. It's hard to tell, but the card base is a deep purple CS that I've had probably 15 years. Yes, I am a hoarder of paper.
Another card using the same technique with a different stencil. I am needing to send this card out tomorrow. Wanted to make sure I got a pic of it before then. I recently purchased some sequins (I know, I am breaking my own rule of depleting my stash) from Pretty Pink Posh. See that teeny tiny sequin in the bottom left corner, that's from her. And few other ones.
Okay, now to talk about depleting my stash. I purchased some sequins from Lawn Fawn not that long ago, and I am very proud to say that they are almost all gone. I am so proud of myself.
And, today I took a small bagful of my cards with envelopes to work and gave to my boss to use if our team ever needs to send a card to someone. There is another nurse that makes cards for the team that they ask her the day before to make something and bring it in, and she DOES! I couldn't do that. I like to think and hem and haw for a while. That's why I took what I already had. Of course, I asked the other card maker if she would mind if I contributed. And her reaction was priceless: YES, and thank you!
Thank you for stopping by! I would love to hear from you and go visit your blog. Traci
