This month, Oozak’s got a challenge out for Fall themed cards. In addition to that, I asked Rusty for any special requests he’d like to have a video on – and he asked for the Crafters Workshop Templates. I actually had to ask around to see what the heck they were! I have a couple of them now, and tried a technique by Diane Reaveley from Ranger – a very cool inky technique called Ghosting. I spent a day getting uber-messy, and came out with some cards that were pretty awesome! Hope you enjoy the video!!
Here’s the card itself…..very very subtle image. It dries back sooooo softly! I left the design very CAS so the ink work could steal the stage; I added only a punched fence and sentiment. And a little yellow ribbon round the old picket fence.
Here’s a closeup of the yummy ink:
Inside information: I made a ton of mistakes along the way….but I didn’t toss them all. I kept the ones that weren’t too atrocious, and I cut leaves from them…..some of which you’re seeing on other cards this week, like yesterday’s! Here’s the leaf template for you….click and it will get bigger, you can size it any way you want.
Go over to Oozak and join in the fall card challenge!
And one final note for today…since this is The Official Start of My Term On The May Arts Design Team, please go over to their blog and leave some love!! Sometime today our bios will be posted – and I’d love for our OWHers to show them how some comments are left — with lots of love and affection for all the designers!
