This weekend found me attending a community theater production with a good friend, watching a whole lot of golf, and making a couple of cards -- one of which was inspired by a technique shared on Day 3 of the Heat Wave Online Card Class.
For the card below, I decided to try my hand at the batik technique.
I love this DI color combo, the gold sheen left from the gold embossing powder is fabulous, and the end result really looks fabric-like. Think I'm really going to have to play around with this technique a few more times. But, I'm thinking about scoring (or using stitched dies) -- instead of random creasing -- to create the folds to maybe achieve a more quilt-like result.
I really need thank you cards for SAS4Kids. So, I think that's where this card is going to go.
If you like playing along at Cards in Envy, a new challenge starts tomorrow. A Just Keep Swimming Challenge started up on Wednesday. Annie's offering a gift certificate to our W2CB Winner.
And, I'm hoping to work on a snowman card for SAS4Kids using the current Jingle Belles sketch. Maybe I'll have something to share... by Wednesday. After all, it's Art in the Afternoon at the Pickerington Public Library tomorrow, and I have a date to help out with kids armed with sidewalk chalk. :)
Have a great week! Thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
