FS313 - With Sympathy


This week's Splitcoaststampers Featured Stamper is Janette Olen (blessingsx3)

I chose this card of Janette's to case:




I did not sign up for this online card class that everyone who's anyone seems to be taking, but I have watched the posted 'homework' enthusiastically. One technique that really caught my eye was the colouring on kraft cardstock. I love how the colours pop on it!

I used a Ditto image and Papertrey sentiment, embossed in white and then coloured with 3 shades of green markers.

I'm not a stamper, but I do get inspired to make die cut cards similar to your stamped ones. It stretches my mind. ;)

Love this card Ardyth ~ your coloring is so realistic it looks like you could lean in and smell the chlorophyl!
"I did not sign up for this online card class that everyone who's anyone seems to be taking, but I have watched the posted 'homework' enthusiastically" - what class and how do you watch the homework?
