Playing with a new technique
I love this technique! It is in the new newsleter from techniquejunkies.com. It is called pastel embossing. I love my chalks, one of my all time favorite things to use in scrapbooks and stamping. So here are three cards using the technique, they all came out very different looking but cool. I have to laugh though, my oldest son looked at the sympathy card and said, "That's not a good sympathy card" and I'm like, "what do you mean it's not a good sympathy card" (miffed voice here) and he says "It's like smiling and saying to someone 'with sympathy' (and he is saying it smiling and a very cheerful voice)". So apparently it is too bright and cheery for my son to feel right about it. I kind of went along with it until he told me it should be in black. Hmmmm this coming from a boy who wears all black as much as he can get away with it! I was going to send this to a gal who's mom just passed away but now I wonder if I shouldn't. Oh well, the cards all were fun to make!
