Group swap cards (1 of 2)

Every month, I gather with some of the most talented stampers in the area. We each plan a card and bring the materials to duplicate the card. We get to make every card and bring them home to share with you.  I don't usually post other people's work on my blog, but maybe I should? Certainly you will enjoy the variety and their styles as well as mine. So, here we go. . .

This gorgeous sympathy card was designed by Barbara Pisciotto. The theme this month was "technique" and each demonstrator was asked to share a card with a specific technique.  Barbara used a blending pen to watercolor the ink inside the petals of the flower. So soft and beautiful!

Laura Nagle also used watercoloring, but as a was for the background. We applied color with the water color crayons, used an aquapainter to spread and soften the color, and it was applied over a black embossed flower image.

Dawn Dickinson imitated the watercolor technique by sponging. Here we applied color inside a "mask" of the large label, gently applying color until it was nice and deep. Then we stamped the flowers.

Tomorrow I'll share a couple more of the cards.

Happy Stamping!
