Yes, I've really been neglecting my blog. I can't believe it's been over a month since my last post. I suppose that is mostly because I haven't really been creating much. Not that I haven't done any crafting, because I have. I made cards for my classes, I've been doing a bit of crochet, and I started quilting another one of those quilts that have been sitting for a couple of years waiting for me to stick a needle in.
Here are two of the cards from my last class. The first one is called a double dutch fold.
I used the SU hostess set simply sketched and colored the image with a waterbrush and intense pencils. I love those and really need to get the big set of 72. I only have 24 and it always seems like the color I really need isn't there. I guess I need to save some money so I can get those.
The second card is a whitewashing technique -- so fun. You embossed the image in white EP and then color it with white ink and a waterbrush. I chose to leave mine neutral and not add any additional color.
And I have another card that I made for today's inspiration challenge on SCS. I chose the 2nd sample given as my inspiration. I used a new background stamp from SU called hardwood -- awesome stamp.
I have something else I worked on this week, but I'll save that for another post.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
