February Just One

Here is the just one from Dawn up close and personal.  Attached is the sweet card I received from my partner Dawn Tinkham this month.  She used the marbled shaving cream technique and double gatefold card.


 The card uses the simple swipes technique along with the popped embossing technique.  The card is from the fancy folds CD called Tall Accordion card.  The stamps are from stampin up!









The ATC is done with the Ghostly Spatters technique.  The rose is from I brake for stamps colored with copics.

Thanks for stopping by...have a crafty weekend!

Flashback to 2009 - IBFS - Mono Masking

Here is my take on an oldie but goodie from the TJ Newsletter Feb 2009.  This is a quick and easy technique with wonderful results.  I took it a bit further and colored my roses with copics.  I love roses.  

The focal stamp and side flowers are stamps from I Brake For Stamps.  I used a technique I learned from the CMC classroom which is called layering which allows you to deepen colors.
