If you approach card-making the way I do, trying a new technique can be a little daunting. Apart from masking and paper-piecing, I tend to keep my stuff "technique-free." Mostly because techniques make such a mess, hee hee. That being said, I tried Jennifer Mcguire's iron-off embossing technique.
Oof. Sorry for the weird photo - I could not, for all the pictures in the world, get the colors to look right. Even so, I do love this card! The iron-off technique allowed me to emboss the background and then stamp the sentiment on top.
I added a yellow "haze" behind the sun and gave him a smiley face. Just because that's what I need to see on a Monday morning.
I hope you play along! You could win a gift certificate to Simon Says Stamp.
This will be my last posting with lawnscaping. I am so sad to be moving on, but needed to trim down my teams a little to make more time for myself. A huge thank you to Laurel and the rest of the girls for being so supportive and kind to me for the last (how long have I been with lawnscaping? ha. it feels like forever!)
Adorable card, as usual!! And you're right, the smiling sun is perfect for a Monday morning! :)ReplyDelete

The blending of the sunlight is divine! Love this! Sad that you are stepping down, but I get plenty of LF from you and I know you could use the break to you know, make more sushi.ReplyDelete
