Yes, No or Maybe So?

It's a rainy, cold, damp Saturday in the Thumb of Michigan.  I hate days like this, but hoping the sun will shine tomorrow.  Hope you all are having a good weekend.  We are just hanging out inside the house today.

I made this card and I'm not sure how I feel about it.  Can't decide if I like it or not, but it's what I have to share today so I guess you are stuck with it.  LOL!

 The set used here is Choose Happiness.  I masked the flower to allow the leaves to look like they were coming from behind the flower.  If you've never masked before, here is what you do.  Stamp you image on a piece of scrap paper and cut it out.  Copy paper works best because it is thinner than cardstock or better yet if you stamp it on a post-it note it's even better because then you have the sticky on the back to hold it in place when you stamp the leaves.  Then take you same image and stamp it on your project.  Now take your scrap that you've cut out and place it over your image on your project.  Now ink up the leaves and stamp right over the scrap piece of paper.  Viola!  Now your leaves look like they are coming from behind the flower.  Easy Peasy!


And here's another project that I did some time ago.  It is just like the one I did for my July class, but different colors and papers.  I used the lovely Gold Soiree DSP for this project and colored the flower in with Old Olive Blendies.

If you have any questions please let me know.  Thanks to those who stop by here and special thanks to those who leave comments.  They mean so much and I appreciate your time in doing so.

Blessings,
Renee
