Take Wing

This is a scheduled post because I'm in one of those all-day in-service forced-social situation thingies all day. I think the goal is get us motivated for the upcoming semester but really all it does for me is zap my will to live.

Here are a couple of cards from a kit called Take Wing, which is what I'll be dreaming of doing all day. It called for brayering on glossy cardstock and then stamping in black. Since I dislike the brayer almost as must as in-service days I oped to sponge it instead. The top card was my first attempt and I wasn't overly happy with the stamped image so I tried it again a second time. In the end I decided both were passable and made them into cards.

The Fine Print: TGIF (sorta), cardstock, stamps and parts by Club Scrap except that funky shaped paperclip from my stash.

Oh my gosh, I love this image. I've never seen it before. It's perfect for that kind of background. And believe me, I feel the same as you do about brayering.

Love your sponged colours, you've made very fine cards indeed. I've not tried the sponge rollers yet from SU, but used my braver once I think. Hope you survived. Xxx

Do hope you have survived the seminar Princess J - Love your silhouette stamp over the sponging - I can understand your dislike of the brayer - tried it more than a few times and argggghhhhh.
Blessings

The sponged colors look great on both of these, and those snippets of ribbon make the cards pop! I hope your day wasn't too awfully long and boring :)

I saw this post while I was out of town, but doesn't look like my comment worked. These are stunning, Judy! I especially love the second one & you've made me want to get out my glossy cardstock!

Who needs a brayer? Not me! I love the sponged background and that wonderful silhouette bird!
