Sorry I haven't been around for a few days! I have been battling it out with migraines since this last Sunday!! Oh I wish they would just go away!! It gets to the point where any little noise just makes you cringe. If you haven't ever had a migraine consider yourself very lucky and if you have had them then you know exactly what I'm taking about. So needless to say it has been a really slow going week around here. I have a class tomorrow so I am hoping I can get through the day without a migraine.

The only thing I have been working on this week is making some sympathy cards and getting ready for class. I only have one card to share with you tonight. It isn't a new card but I have made a ton of these and I have taught a few classes on making them. It's one of my favorites!!
For the base of this card I used a full sheet of CS folded in half and scored. To design this picture I used several stamps and also did a little bit of masking. All of the stamps except for the wold are stampscapes stamps. They are very easy to work with and what I would call very user friendly stamps. Like I said I did a little bit of masking, mostly over the wolf. But for the most part the way these stamps are made there is very little masking involved in layering the images. After I was done with all of the stamping then I use chalks to color in the design and I applied crystal effects over the areas of water to give it a wet look. I also used a craft knife to cut around the top part of the wolf and then used popdots to raise it up just a little.

Stamps~8 Stampsscapes, Wolf-PSX
All CS is SU
Ink~Black Stazon
Other~Chalks, Crystal Effects, Brads, Metallic Pen

Thanks so much for stopping by!!
