Recycle and Simple

Related Posts with ThumbnailsI know this card doesn't look like much, since you really can't see the light blue shading in the background.
Another card for the ladies down at the Senior Center.
I used the copic airbrush system for the background, Memory Box branch die (love this die) and SU bird punch. The bird was punched from a gold lining from a sake box the staff at the YAK saved for me from Sake San Jose. It was a little too bright gold, so I airbrushed is with a little dark brown. Again hard to see the shimmer in the photo. The triple matting added to the look and that was done with my Gensis paper cutter, which is the best.

Old School Stamping - Chalking

Simple Chalking Technique
Related Posts with ThumbnailsI'm getting back into the swing of things and teaching rubber stamp classes is something I enjoy and truly miss. It does take a whole lot of prep time for a class and that is where most new teacher fail.
This is one of the cards I did for the ladies down at the Senior Center this month. Simple stamping (brown ink) and then very old school technique - chalking. I may be doing a class on the oldies but goodies stamping techniques from the past. We all have the stuff but sometimes forget about them when the flashier new products come out.
