Daily Special - Post Revisted - December 28, 2006

Good Morning Folks. . .Today's Daily Special is "Post Revisted". What's "Post Revisited"? Well, I've decided once a week, I'll repost a post from 6 months ago. It's sort of interesting to see if my style of creating cards have changed. As you can see with the card below. . .it hasn't changed much. Back in December. . .just about the time I started my blogs. . .I did not post sketches so I created a sketch for the card below. I started posting sketches sometime at the end of January.

What I'll do is include the original commentary and at the top add a current one. Hope this is okay with y'all. I don't believe any of you look back as far as 6 months ago so it's sort of good to recycle sketches and techniques.

Until later. . .


Can you believe it. . .I took this picture with my new camera with only a dim light as a source of light and without a flash and my new camera was able to take this picture. I absolutely love it!

This card was rubber stamped using DJ Inkers Big Bloom stamp. I really like this stamp. This is one of the very first stamp I bought close to 4 years ago.

The background is a scrapbook page by DCWV. I rubber stamped the big flower image on glossy cardstock 2X, colored one of the image, cut the flower and leaves out and remounted them with foam tape on to the other flower image. This gives the image a 3D effect. I then colored the stem and sponged the background.

To add a contrasting image, I used Stampin' Up Wishing You the Best stamp, punched it with a 1 1/2 circle punch, mounted the image on eggplant envy cardstock and cut around it with a scalloped scissors. I mounted the image using foam tape.

To give the background a bit of character, I pierced around the corners with a paper piercer. The colors are actually brighter than the picture shows but I did take this picture practically in the dark.
