Today is a busy day for me………………………………..no really………………don’t laugh…….it really is. First thing this morning I started on the Spring Card Class so that I could get my cards done and posted early. That didn’t happen, but it was okay as I had a virtual crop with some friends starting at one o’clock, so I could finish them now.
At three o’clock I have a Save the Tigers at the Calgary Zoo crop that lasts for 24 hours. There will be an email with a challenge of some sort every hour. That should be interesting, although I am hoping that the 2:00 am challenge is to sleep for at least 5 hours. We will see.
Back to the cards for today. The video was presented by Kristina Werner and the topic was ink smooshing. I was happy to see this because it is a technique that is easy and nearly always looks good when you are done. The two for one theme continues. I usually make smooshing technique card fronts on larger pieces of watercolour paper so that I can cut out the card front from the area that I like best. However, I ended up liking the whole piece and I was able to cut the paper in half like we did in Day 2? and create two card fronts.
I have more card fronts and letters sitting here to make even more cards but these will do for now.
