Here are two cards I made yesterday.
-The first one is a valentine, now how could you tell? LOL. The image is stamped on ivory vellum in brown on the back side, and coloured with chalk. Kim Dietz taught this technique at Mindy's store last spring.
-The second one is called spotlight technique. I partly coloured the bird with chalk, and punched a circle out of the vellum to spotlight the bird. The image is from the SU Garden Collage set,the background is a stamp from the Tim Holtz Collection stamped in SU Sage, and the verse is also from SU Wonderful Words.
