Stretch Your Stamps 2, Day 1

I was lucky enough to win a spot in the new Stretch Your Stamps 2 class, and dived right in!  I loved Shari's card , in which she used a negative-image background stamp and distress inks.  Here's my CASE of her card, using the supplies I have here at home.


supplies: Hero Arts Flower Bird Garden, broken china, peeled paint, evergreen bough and peacock feathers distress inks, Wplus9's Seasonal Sentiments die, Memory Box Perched Reed Bird die

I am loving this class, and there's 10 more days to go!

Wow Lin! You are so fast out of the starting blocks and you created a dream card to boot! I absolutely love this idea and of course you used my favourite colour combination. Unfortunately I will have to wait until tomorrow to make a card but I can't wait to play with this technique!
