9/29/2016 Thursday's at Scraps Galore

Many of the stamp companies are offering two step stamping.
Basically you have a solid shape that the outline shape goes over.
Today's card is only an outline stamp and we will 
be doing a Faux Two Step image.
This idea has so many possibilities!


Please bring your basic class kit
including
non stick craft mat
water brush or paint brush
water in a spray bottle
black edger
distress inks
peeled paint (any green)
two colors that blend well
I used
picked raspberry & wilted violet
abandon coral & wild honey

That should do it!
Have a great week and see you on Thursday!

9/22/2016 Thursday's at Scraps Galore

Today's card is a Double Z Fold card,
really easy but I love the movement.
Very similar to the floating Z card we did a while back.

I used a set of dog stamps/dies from Sizzix designer Stephanie Barnard.
I also stepped out of my comfort zone and used colored pencils.
One card I blended with Gamsol the other I used a colorless pencil blender.




 

Today while poking around the Internet I came across this tutorial.
I will have to try her way of coloring & Gamsol.
Thought you might like to see the video
 and much to my surprise I actually figured out how to attach it!
