Technique Tuesday on Monday Class


Last night was Cyndy's monthly technique class rescheduled from last Tuesday. She always comes up with great "recipes" for us to try, and these are no exception.

The first was the hardest, but a lot of fun. I think it would be easier to stamp the smaller squares separately after cutting them. Otherwise, it was pretty straightforward. Cyndy chose really nice colors to use.

The middle card features a fancy folded card using the retired set "Carte Postal." The double-sided dp has "bonjour" on the reverse side in keeping with the French words and images. I chose "Mon Amie" to give to my friend, Lucienne, the "Queen of France" as her friends call her. We thought it appropriate to use this set with Mary, whose husband works for the post office.

The third was a brayered process and the easiest to do. It is embellished with white gel pen and glitter "snow."

Very nice cards. I especially love the brayered sky one. I need to think about Christmas and that would be a pretty one...a silent night type card. What a fun class!
