A Fan of Handmade
My favorite part of making a card is sending it to someone I care about. There are six ladies who I worked with for several years who are enjoying their fall in a new way. They are not returning to their classrooms. I made this tribute card to celebrate how I'm a fan of theirs.
The main image is a fan created by priscillastyles. It is one from CDAC Progressive Freebie Challenges. It's been colored with colored pencils. Behind the image you can see I made my own background paper too featuring a piece of Cherry Cobbler paper stamped with a rose image from Unity's June set using Brilliance Galaxy Gold ink and the Sizzix Flourish Texture plate, it's subtle but a handmade touch. The top gingham paper is DCWV from the Kitchen collection.
I've started collecting and using digi images and have a new challenge, how to store them. Any ideas?
Thanks for looking.
