Thank you for all the nice comments on "Green Acres!" it was a lot of fun to do and glad it brought back golden memories for some! Today, I am going in the opposite direction with a sympathy card. I have never made one before, because I was afraid it would look cheesy. Well, I didn't make one, I made two using Gina K's Nature Stamp Set and following her easy DVD directions. They were easy and I really love the look ! I love no brainers! Don't we all!? Gina shows different stamping techniques for each card and I had a blast just following along! It taught me to look at design paper in a different way. If you don't have paper that matches your image or project... change it.
The design paper was changed by stamping leaves with Rich Cocoa Memento Ink onto the paper. The butterfly was stamped with the same colored and it pulled everything together.
This back ground was stamp with the focal image on the card with the same color ink. The paper before being stamp was plain and now it all ties well together.
