Online Card Classes: His & Hers - Day 1


I'm taking another class at Online Card Classes - I'm totally hooked - and this time around it's His & Hers.  The whole goal this time around is to create a masculine & feminine version of your cards... fun!

Day 1's "theme" was "Thinking of You", which I loosely translated to "Sending a smile across the miles", and then combined it with PTI's MIM Challenge (blown ink).


Hers & His
  Kinda fun, right?  These cards hold a lot of firsts... first time I've used the bicycle & sentiment stamps, first time I've handsewn on a card, first time I've done the 'Blown Ink' technique... And, despite the Plum Pudding ink 'bleeding', I kind of love these.

Supplies Used:
Stamps:  Everyday Button Bits (PTI)
Paper:  Stamper's Select White, Summer Sunrise, Hawaiian Shores, Bitty Box Basics, Bitty Dot Basics, Funky Town (PTI)
Ink:  Lemon Tart (1st Generation), Summer Sunrise, Berry Sorbet, Hawaiian Shores, Winter Wisteria, Plum Pudding (1st Generation) (PTI Ink Refills); Versafine Onyx Black
Other:  Black Embroidery Thread, Sakura Glaze Pen

Oh, I added Sakura Clear Glaze pen over the bike images, as well...just gives it a little sheen & helps it to pop a little more (not that you can see that in the photo...).

I'm off to see what Day 2 has in store... catch ya on the flip side, yo!*
