Three Cards to Share
The first is a card we all made at our card making group that meets the first Saturday of each month. I try to have a project that introduces a new technique and this month it was sponging. Thanks to my daughter Amanda for the design of the card. I arrived back in Chapala on Thursday so it really helped me timewise not to have to come up with a design for my project that I needed on Saturday morning! Stamps are from Stampin' Up and Gina K. Designs.
We also used colored pencils on the flowers. I purchased a set of colored pencils by CraZArt at WalMart while I was stateside. A pack of 72 pencils was only $5.72! I had read about how good these pencils are on Splitcoast Stampers and figured at that price I could give them a try since I don't have a large set. My next card was made with a new set from Flourishes, Calla Lilies and the new pencils. I thought that they worked very well, and now I have a nice range of colors to use. This photo doesn't capture the colors as well as I would like, however.
My last card is one of nine that I made to take to the Monday Market today. Thanks to Patti P. for making a card with this image from The Graphics Fairy -- I headed right over there and snagged the image for myself. Made all nine of the cards today -- they worked up fairly quickly, assembly line style! Hope they sell as quickly! Stamp is from Gina K. Designs, cut with Spellbinders Banners die.
