Day6- Stretch your Stamps

Sometimes my mind gets so excited and moving so fast that it does things before I can check what the next step is. Sometimes this flaw of mine works for me and sometimes it doesn't. This time however, I love my mistake. Trying out Donna's card technique, I reached for the clear embossing instead of the white embossing power, but I love the subtlety of this image and my mistake, or rather my interpretation.

Day 1- Stretch your Stamps 2- card 2

Not wanting to waste a single bit of my background stamp creation, I took the "you" and created another card. To give it a extra little oomph I covered it with Crackle accents from Ranger. The pattern may be a bit busy for the crackle technique but what the heck, the idea is to experiment and STRETCH not only your stamps but your creativity. I am going to make more of these cards.

I am so excited that there is another online card class session going on right now!
I had lots of fun recreating Kristina's card and adding my own twists.
Lots of things happening here- water colouring, emboss resist, inlay die cutting and a hint of Wink of Stella. Woo hoo :)
