Today is Day One of, yes, another Online Card Class presented by Jennifer McGuire, Kristina Werner and others. I love these classes. The videos are great as are the handouts. All stampers provide clear instruction and great samples. This class is called His & Hers. It's designed to help us translate clever ideas into card designs for both guys and gals. This first card was created with an old set of stamps which I love but have rarely used. That's my goal with this class. Use my stash. This particular set is called Mindy's Flowers by Autumn Leaves. In Jennifer's sample, she used Prismacolor Pencils to color the image. I don't have those so I used my Inktense pencils and applied a tiny bit of water to blend the colors.
For the masculine sample, Jennifer used kraft cardstock and white ink. I used my amazing Club Scrap white received at 2010 Retreat and this time, I did use some old Venus colored pencils that I've been hoarding for 36 years. Yes. You read that right. Anyway, I don't think the stamps I chose were adaptive to this technique but I'm content with the results. I do love the look of colored pencils on kraft cardstock and plan to do more of it in the future. Maybe during this class? My little pearls on both cards were made with either Ranger Enamel Accents, Ranger Liquid Pearls or Tulip Pearl Fabric paint. I used all three on different cards and, honestly, don't recall which one is on each card. Hope to stay on top of this class so please return soon. Thanks for visiting.
