At the Super Saturday events, we encourage stampers to swap their work. Sometimes I am the beneficiary of an extra swap card — hooray! This card was made by my friend Betty, inspired by the color combinations on page 15 of the catalog. An art teacher, Betty does beautiful work and, no surprise, has a great eye for color and texture. This card uses textured card stock (and why don’t I own any?) and a strip of black using the faux suede technique. I’ll share that some time. Additional interest is created with “direct to paper” — pressing the ink pad against the paper.
Are you looking for the stamp for the sun on this card? Don’t know for certain, but I’ll bet she created a reverse mask with a punch and sponged it.
A beautiful card, stamped inside as well. Thanks, friend! See ya Friday evening!
