Works of Art

This past weekend a few of us got together at our local coffee shop/art gallery to make cards. We decided to make two cards - I designed one of the cards and fellow demonstrator Imogene Thomas designed the other. Since our group included two people who had never before put stamp to ink we wanted our cards to be easy and yet striking.

The Work of Art set is perfect for this task! The stamped images resemble swooshes of watercolor. No matter how they are arranged they look wonderful when placed on cardstock. I have seen them used in many ways and they are always fantastic! Here is the card I designed for them.

Our beginners had no trouble with the images and were even comfortable with the stamping off technique that we used. Attaching a couple of more layers was a simple way to add some additional class to the card.

Although we didn't plan our cards together Imogene's card followed a similar theme. We even used two of the same colors - Wild Wasabi and Marina Mist. Her card used the masking technique to create a serene scene with the Kinda Eclectic stamp set. Here is her card.
