I have finally finished the cards from the Technique Tuesday classes I took at the CK Convention in Houston. The first 5 cards are from the Expanding your Creative Border class:
The last card with the flowers and butterfly I am entering in the Paper Playtime Challenge .
The challenge is Flower Power. I completed the card on Monday
although the borders were done at the workshop as well as
coloring the rick rack. Hope this is still eligible. :)
The next 5 cards were from the Top Techniques for Tantalizing Cards:
There is a story behind the first card. My Siamese Kitten, Bear,
decided he was going to help me Tuesday as I was making
this set of cards. Most of these cards use Classic Technique
Tiles from Technique Tuesday. As I was detaching the tiles
from their cardboard home, I would leave the excess edges
on my work table. Bear was hovering around the table top
(My table is up against my computer desk), he would
sneak in and take off with the edge pieces of the cardboard.
On this card I had detached the ornate tile and had colored it
with CTMH Cranberry sp and let it dry. I then usedthe
houndstooth acrylic stamp from the Dream Big stamp set
we received in the class. I had attached the colored tile to the
stamped background and went left for a few minutes. When I got
back, the card was on the floor with a piece of the tile torn off and
Bear playing with it. While he was stealing the card top from my
work table he had also stepped in my CTMH Cocoa stamp pad.
Needless to say Bear was in trouble ( I just scolded him), but I
think I managed to repair the damage except for some tell tale
brown spots left by Bear.
