My open house is over and I think it was a blast. There were a steady stream of people the whole time. I had so much fun! Thanks to those of you who attended!
The September stamp of them month is a good one...Treasure Life! I was hoping we would get a wildflower stamp set and this is just wonderful. This card is another design from the Originals book called Center Sash on page 16. This is one of my favorite designs in the book. I am getting hooked on the 3 1/2 x 8 card base.
I used the new colors Sorbet and Creme Brulee with a touch of New England Ivy. I used markers on the flowers and then huffed on it before stamping. This looks a little like watercoloring. I like how it turned out. Oh, I used Sunflower for the actual flower and then used my markers on the sentiment to get it two colors.
I tried a new trick I learned at convention with the ribbon. Kim Lohberg taught us how to use a concho on the card and then tie the ribbon through it in her Extravangza class. Awesome! Can you see my concho on the left side of my card? This is a great way to use these embellies!
