Christmas Greetings

For today's card I did a little more playing with single layer cards (*gasp*) (who is this person blogging and what did she do with LotsaLayersLibby?) (heh heh).

I loved how this other card turned out when I used the acrylic block background technique I learned from Hero Artist Sally Traidman, and that was also made famous this fall by the mega-talented Jennifer McGuire. You can check out that link to view Jennifer's tutorial on how to do it like a professional. I didn't mist up my block, I just applied ink all over the block & stamped it - that gives the more snowy/stormy/splotchy look to it. Which I happen to like. Then I stamped the trees by coloring directly on the stamp with my water-based markers.

The thing I love most about this card? The sweet little red bird in the tree. hee hee!

Well guess what!?! Tomorrow is the big release of the 2011 Hero Arts Catalog, and the big blog hop featuring new stamps - and would you believe little ol' me gets to hop along with the stamping superstars? Wowza. It's true!! So make sure and come back tomorrow. Especially if you like prizes. :-D

Happy Stamping!
