Online Card Classes – Stretch Your Stamps 2 – Day 1


Here is my first card from Day 1 of Online Card Classes – Stretch Your Stamps 2 – Backgrounds.  The background stamp is from Hero Arts “Sweet Threads – Antique” and made using distress inks as shown by Shari Caroll.  You can’t really tell, but I sprayed with Pearlized water so in real life, it shimmers.  I changed the original card idea around  into a fall version and am thrilled with how it came out.  The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamps, label is Tim Holtz die, and the great leaves are die cuts from Impression Obsession which took me forever to get last year and I’m glad I did.  Oh do I love me some Online Card Classes!

I made a second card so I decided to add to this post.
