Ok let's move on!
Next was Northern lights. Loved doing this! We followed a tutorial by France Martin..
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2W_0yey4RW0 We tried this on both Shimmer paper which is what France Martin used and we tried it on glossy paper. At first, since I was doing both papers at the same time, I wasn't really liking the way the colors went on the glossy paper but by the time you got to the last step of the black I think both are equally nice. I will definitely try this again and you should give it a try too. Go to France's YouTube video's and follow her tutorial.
Left is Shimmer and right is Glossy. Sorry about the flash mark but the glossy picked up on that and when I turned the flash off the colors didn't come through true. Tree's turned out bolder on the glossy paper. I used the same ink for both prints. Sure looks different though.
Can you imagine how much fun that night was!! And we're not done yet. 1 more technique and then a card designed by one of our ladies.
Embossing as a resist! Just saw something similar on a YouTube video from Dawns' Stamping Thoughts. How ironic that June had already decide to do a card with a similar technique. We Versa marked some butterflies and flowers on to white card stock then we white embossed. Then choose your color pallet and starting with the lightest sponge each color over the embossed image's. The white embossing works as a resist. when all colors are on, rub the surface with a dry cloth to brighten the images. So pretty.
And finally.........an adorable Easter Card!!
The image was a Northwoods stamp and the greeting was cut from the Cricut. Simple but Elegant and it fits into a legal sized envelope so no big expense there! This card was so refreshing to make after the intense moments of the other 3 cards.
Love the gray with the purple!
Well as you can see it was a fun fun evening! I can't believe Friday is just around the corner again and we have a some Easter cards planned! Though someone (shhhhh, we won't say who....lol) thinks we need to do some Christmas cards. LOL....alright alright alright.....maybe next gathering?????
Til Next Time......
