Today’s class is my favorite of all time. The different techniques that were taught today are amazing. I’m going to try them all!! I’m starting with the technique Laura Bassen taught us today. I seen her do this a couple of times before but have never tried it. I’m glad I’m getting the chance to to that. The Masked Background technique is creating a background with masking..no need to use stamps to create this look. I love it!
Take a look at my card:
After I was done, I realized I didn’t leave any white space but I like it like that. The pattern isn’t uniformed which looks great to me. I have to admit that it wasn’t easy blending my inks together. I had to press really hard to get the inks to really look uniform. I will try this technique again using distress inks. Laura did say they blend so much better.
So tell me what do you think of my plaid background card.

Kymona, as I read your blog today, it dawned on me the complexity of creating cards. As someone who is not a crafter, I took for granted what it takes to create these wonderful pieces of art. Whenever I need a card, I usually go to the card store and search for one that is just right… one in which the words and artwork clearly depict my feelings for the individual that I will be giving it to. Because of this blog, I am appreciating the artistry of card making and the extensive techniques used to create these amazing works of art! I look forward to your blogs!
