A wonderful surprise showed up in my mailbox today! It was my complimentary copy of the new Spring Take Ten magazine. I was excited to see one of my cards on the cover – 1st Class, lower right. I have a mini-tutorial on the Split Negative technique on pages 62-63. There are tons of other wonderful ideas in here from some of your favorite artists. I spotted many samples from Sharon Johnson, Debbie Olson, Tricia Ulberg, Kim van der Sanden, Jen del Muro, Lisa Zappa, Kathy Torrence and Kim Hughes. It will be available March 1st. Thanks for letting me gush just a bit.
Here is another sample that I created for the CHF booth at CHA. This is one of those ‘happy accidents’ cards. The ink is Beige Brilliance Pearlescent applied to my red stained brayer. The Beige Brilliance drew out some of the red tone from the brayer and the ink took on a light pink sheen. I contemplated trashing the idea, but then decided to run with it. It totally fit the color scheme.
Just another bit of encouragement to anyone on the TK fence. While these images are beautiful when colored, you do not have to be a watercolor or marker artist to use these stamps. They make wonderful monochromatic cards.
