I made a few cards yesterday. I don't know, it always feels so hard to make cards. Perhaps I just don't do it often enough. :) They are all colored in with either colored pencils or markers from Crayola. Here they are:
First, this card took me HOURS. I was going to try for a sketch template on Split Coast, but didn't think it out enough ahead of time. So, this is what I ended up with. It looks pretty good, for my cards, I think. I used the Relaxation Tree for All Seasons from JessicaLynnOriginal and a Card Quote.
Next I made a birthday card using another stamp from JessicaLynnOriginal that I ordered at the same time as the Relaxation Tree. Again, I used a Card Quote. I just bought a hole punch, so this was my first time using that also.
And last but not least, I tried out the burned batik techique from SCS.
With this one, I used a couple stamps that came with the Relaxation tree for the burned batik part of the background and one of the JLO Doodle Bugs stamps for the foreground. I wanted to add a sentiment, but it would have blocked one of the bugs, so I left it as they are supposed to show a progression. I scorched the card and didn't have clear embossing powder, so I think the burning part could have gone better, but I'm looking forward to giving it another shot.
