One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Online Card Class ~Clean and Simple 2 Day 2 - 3

Still playing catch up with yesterday's cards...I think I mentioned struggling with Jennifer's technique...still not pretty, but I managed to pull it together and get it done...I obviously need a lot of work...is it possible to learn to get a 'steady' hand?
So here is the idea....stamp off the page with your sentiment...in a light color.  Stamp it on your water color paper very lightly, just enough so that you can see the lines and trace over it.  Using water color pencils I traced it using an assortment of colors.  Then this is the part I had trouble with....go over your letters or design with a water brush to give it the water color look.  I die cut a half and half die using transparent paper and then I used some Tim Holtz distress ink to shade in the blue...I added some red hearts.  That is it, people...pretty simple
