Happy blessings!

Debra Burgin 1107 CH Happy BlessingsMy once-a-month Friday afternoon stamp camp at Colonial House is a pleasure, and not just because the stampers are so fun to be with.  I design cards for this camp that are simple in design but still use techniques that are easy to do at home.  Rare is the card with a non-paper embellishment, so I need to be creative in adding texture.

Last month we talked about wheeling.  One of my stampers uses wheels quite a bit; the others, not at all.  So this was my challenge for September.  Wheeling tone-on-tone makes the Mustard panel on this card look like it’s been embroidered.  It’s a very rich look.  We used a leaf from the beautiful Gently Falling set, repeated and sponged to resemble the changing colors we’re starting to see.
