Faux tearing


Hi Everyone,

I hope you all enjoyed celebrating Passover and Easter with family and friends . I know it has been awhile since I blogged and I apologize for that, but I have been so busy designing new classes, preparing both samples and Make and Takes which I will be doing for Pointers Gift and Crafts at Scrapfest in Kitchner next week. If you are going to attend, please come and say "Hi", watch the demos, and make the fabulous Make and Takes with us. We are going to be in booth 630, and I'm looking forward to seeing you there.

I decided to incorporate some old techniques and change them up a bit for some of my classes, (I am now teaching at Pointers Gifts and Crafts http://www.pointerscrapbooing.com/). Here is one of the cards I made using distress inks. Did you guys see the 12 new colours? Of course, I had to buy them all, the colours are gorgeous, and I plan on using them often.

I used Hero Arts leaf stamp, Rangers Distress Inks Broken China and Shabby Shutters, Sizzix embossing folder, and torn masking tape to create this card. Let me know what you think. I am working on a few other cards which I will post in a few days, so stay tuned.

Hope you are all having a great weekend.

Hugs,

Nicky

So glad to see you are back Nicky!!! The card is gorgeous but then isn't everything you do??? I've missed you and think of you often. Hope to get up and see you at Pointers one of these days, or maybe just meet for coffee? Take care my friend!
