We have been traveling a bit, and doing day trips when home. I had a chance to try to work on catching up- very behind on Swaps!
For the May Technique challenge at Splitcoast, we made Salt technique cards. I combined the challenge with the Alpha A=Avocado challenge.
I used Peeled Paint Distress ink and salt on layer one- using the wrinkle free distress technique to apply color. I used a blending brush to add more color and dabbed on a bit of water on the next layer. I added splatters of white paint and black ink next. I die cut a vellum ovel (Gina Marie Dies) and added daisy die cuts from Memory box (from SSS), adding a twine bow. The sentiment is SSS. (Simon Says Stamp).
Next is the April image from Diane (Glamour) and it has been sitting waiting to be mailed on my desk for a while- the image is Whimsy Stamps.
We make a card with our swapped images and mail them to each other. This is off to Ruby in WA state today! The image is colored using Copics and highlights using a white gel pen.
Thanks for stopping by!
