A swap share

At the Super Saturday events, we encourage stampers to swap their work.  Sometimes I am the beneficiary of an extra swap card — hooray!  This card was made by my friend Betty, inspired by the color combinations on page 15 of the catalog.  An art teacher, Betty does beautiful work and, no surprise, has a great eye for color and texture.  This card uses textured card stock (and why don’t I own any?) and a strip of black using the faux suede technique.  I’ll share that some time.  Additional interest is created with “direct to paper” — pressing the ink pad against the paper.

Are you looking for the stamp for the sun on this card?  Don’t know for certain, but I’ll bet she created a reverse mask with a punch and sponged it.

A beautiful card, stamped inside as well.  Thanks, friend!  See ya Friday evening!
