Velveteen Technique...

I tried this "Velveteen" technique created by the fabulous Shari Carroll from Hero Arts.  You can check out the tutorial  HERE.  It was fun and I really like the effect.  The metal butterfly was an afterthought... it's been sitting on my desk and I am not sure if I like it or not on this card.  It looks a lot better in person than on this scan.

Birthday card for my Dad...

I made this card a while back for my Dad's birthday, which is  coming up at the end of the week.  He will be 79 and loves flying RC planes.  I hope he likes it!

I know I have been MIA for quite a while but some days I am just not feeling very well, which means I don't feel like stamping or doing much else.  I am finally getting caught up here at home so hopefully I can stamp more instead of doing housework and trying to catch up.  *fingers crossed*


Cardstock: Gina K Pure Luxury (white), SU black, misc. cloud paper
Ink:  Memento
Stamps:  Papertrey Ink
Tools: Cloud die cuts, Prismacolor pencils and Goo Gone, embossing folder, string
