I have done this technique in the past and I love it! Watch it here! I love having one more use for those kinda pricey cover plates (but PTI has the best price in the industry - HANDS DOWN!) I really have a clean and simple style and I am making this year (my year starts with the school year, not January 1) the year to really develop that. I find that I try to follow the crowd and get into all the new fads and I end up with a lousy card, that I really didn't enjoy making in the first place. Lets see if I can do it! Hope you like my first card of my 'new' year resolution!
I really enjoyed watching Kristina's video today. I love any reason to pull out my Tim Holtz distress tool (Festive Berries, Worn Lipstick, & Spun Sugar ink). I used a die from MFT called duo bracket die and a stamp set from SU (I think it is a hostess set). I used a paint brush and my TH ink pads to watercolor the flower. I like the soft look of this card. I plan to make few more while I have all the supplies out. Sorry for the dark photo, I finished after the sunset here in Iowa.
