I made my very first shaker card!!! Everything is from the Painted With Love Suite. The Specialty DSP is just stunning!!!
Used practically the whole Cake Soirée Suite here
Just using some scraps of the almost retired DSP. This time I experimented with some triangular blocks (used the retired postage stamp punch and cut some in half diagonally). I think it looks like a windmill. The DSP is from the Falling in Love suite and the Happy Hearts embossing folder is also on the retirement list 😢. The sentiment is from the Sunshine Sayings stamp set and Thankfully is not retiring! The actual card is officially in the mail! I made it for a purpose.
I must say a white watercolour pencil is something I had somewhat protested to. Any good watercolourist would tell you no I do not use white I use the paper to create my white. So I decided to move beyond the bounds of watercolour and try my watercolour pencil as like a pastel pencil and use white on a darker paper a common pastel technique and I love the harmony of it. Yay for versatility!!!!
This is the 3rd card I’m teaching at this months technique class and I won’t be showing the surprise project until after the session on April 21. There’s still one opening on April 14th so if you wish to learn both heat and pressure embossing then feel free to join us Email at firstname.lastname@example.org for details. For our May technique class we will be doing masking technique. Note: this card has combined heat and pressure embossing.
