April Class: Collage and Ghosting

The Collage technique is one of my favorites. I have not done this one in a very long time. For some reason I really struggled pulling colors together and got some help from my friend Pegg.

I love the distressed edges and the scraping of a stamp pad across your cardstock with this technique. Kind of scruffy looking!!! LOVE it.

Stamp sets: 5th Avenue Floral, Bella Toile
Cardstock: Chocolate Chip, Creamy Caramel, Riding Hood Red
Pads: Chocolate Chip, Creamy Caramel, Riding Hood Red
Accessories: Cutter Kit, Large Oval Punch, Scallop Oval punch, half pearl, Mini Glue Dots

This card is the Ghosting Technique. It is fun to do and I have not used my brayer in next to forever!!!

Stamp Sets: Eastern Blooms, Sanded
Cardstock: Glossy White, Baja Breeze, So Saffron
Pads: Baja Breeze, Ruby Red, Versamark
Accessories: Brads (EE and SS), Designer Buttons, Mini Glue Dots, Foam Brayer

I hope you like this months class!!!
