No on to my cards.... I love fancy folds.. and I have achieved two different looks by just changing out types of paper. My technique is using the patterned paper and stamping my bold letter on them so they stand out.


The first card I made for my Mom.  She loves roses and I just love the Navy and Pink combo.



For the second card I made one for a special male in our lives going to start a new journey.

For my Project I used the bleach, a blender brush (filled with bleach), cream cardstock, and versa mark with clear embossing powder .

I started out my card by making a template with a die and used a dauber with saddle ink to make a background image.



Then I Stamped my image on a scrap piece of cream cardstock with a pigment ink pad and embossed with clear powder.  I stamped a solid image of the flower with Cashmere.  Once dry, I used the blender brush filled with bleach to remove some of the background color leaving some to give shading effects.  Stamped my image on the masked part of the card and layered to card to give more color and dimension.  Added the ribbon and pearls because more is always more!! Smiles!!

This months technique is water color~~ I used a page of our Live Beautifully
Paper pack that had a white background but gold flowers embossed.  I used a
water color brush with our ink pads to color in different shades of the flower
and leaves. Picture does not do this card justice. I also used our glitter pen
over the finished edge and gave it a sparkle.


I also found some great ideas on pinterest on using water color for the background
using the clear block and inking then spritzing with water.
I also found some great ideas on using the stamp that I have for the prize this month and

ONE STAMP SET ..

So I used the party Swirls in pixie, canary & tangerine for
a fun festive background covering..






 This on the sentiment is in Archival Black, the flowers are in
glacier & sweet pea. I used the glitter pen to enhance the flowers.
This was a perfect card for a wedding for my Niece.

Using the sentiment and the swirls as a 
                                  background for this card!
This could be for a graduation card or any
other fun achievement..
This stamp set comes in a kit to make other fun Wedding
and Congratulations cards. Can be ordered on my Website Jodiepark.ctmh.com
