I went to the Friday night crop at Priceless, the LSS, last night. Had about eight ladies there last night and it was so much fun!! My friend Penny showed up with her Card Maker magazine with a mission for me. There was a card with an unusual fold that she wanted to learn how to make, so I detoured what I was working on to see if I could figure out the directions to make the fold used on the card. Turned out to be pretty simple and here is what I came up with:
I was also working with the Black Magic technique for the first time, so I incorporated the two techniques. The papers and stamps are all by Bo Bunny. I used a variety of punches for the borders and accents. The Black Magic is done by stamping white pigment ink on a dark card stock. After the ink is dry (mine was encouraged to dry faster with a heat tool) the images are colored with colored pencils. Added a little sparkle to then centers of the flowers with a clear glitter gel pen. Here is a look at the fold from another angle:
Penny ended up taking the card with her with a different sentiment on it. She needed a birthday card today, so we changed the sentiment to "wish big" and she took it home with her.
My summer vacation had its official start yesterday! I have some work to do for an online class I am taking, but I hope to be able to get some organizing done and then stamp, stamp, STAMP!!! Thanks for stopping in today!!! Happy stamping!!
