Velveteen technique

Sorry for the very long blog break. I have been working very long hours the last months and no time for creativity at all.

I did do a few classes with the velveteen technique in 2 of them ( a technique introduced by the amazing Shari Caroll a while back).  So at least I can share some of these cards, huh?

This first one is using the wonderful Snow Dots stamp from Hero Arts and the White Christmas stamp which is a negative stampe with lots of solid area - great for this technique.
The blue ink is the mid tone pool.

On the next one I used the Leaf Background and the Christmas Ornaments - all from Hero Arts.
The grey ink is wet cement.

By the way, it is snowing here today - the first snow. Can you believe it? Anyway, perfect timing on 1st of December! ;))

Ihh... nogle SUPER lækre kort, kan virkelig godt lide den "tavle / kridt" effekt.
Sender de bedste ønsker til både dig og Jan, om en rigtig god jul.
