When I was reorganizing *okie knows everyone has a hard time believing that okie was reorganizing again* yesterday I found a sheet of square rose images I had forgotten about and immediately thought I could use them for cards. Isn't it amazing what you can find that you have when you reorganize?
I pulled out one of my Cards magazines and flipped through there to find an idea to use. And this is what I came up with.
Supplies used -
One sheet of square rose images
Patterned paper - two different patterns *okie doesn't remember who makes the ones she used*
Cardstock - three different colors
Cat eye chalk ink
Stamping Up marker
Flat back pearls
Ivory braiding trim
Sentiment - Stamping Up Teeny Tiny Wishes
Cricut Cartridges - George and Mini Monograms
My friend Linda told me about a new techinque she had tried. It is called faux suede and she learned it from Dawn of Dawn's Stamping Thoughts *okie doesn't care for Dawn because Dawn is way too talented for her own good and swears that Dawn is in cahoots with the government to stimulate the economy because everytime okie see something that Dawn has okie wants it!* What you do is take a bone folder and rake it along your paper several times on both sides and then pull the paper apart. The paper then will look like suede. Not sure if you can really see this but that is what I did on the red strips of paper. You might be able to see if you click the picture and make it bigger.
If you would like to see Dawn's video on how to do this check out her Faux Suede Video.
