This is my second post today. Scroll down for my DeNami Blog Hop card. I love trying the techniques shown on the PTI MIM videos. This week is adding texture to your image before stamping it. Betsy used a comb, but I found a little brush (the kind you clean a razor with) & decided to give it a try. My stamps are PTI Trendy Tree Tops & Background Basics: Geometrics. Goldfinches are one of my favorite birds & I see them at my feeder every day now. They inspired me to use yellow glitter for the little bird in the tree. I used a black Glaze pen for the eye. New record--4 sequins on a card! Think this would make a good masculine card except maybe switch out twine for the yellow ribbon. Gorgeous day in the Pacific Northwest & I worked in the roses which are in full bloom--way earlier than usual. Love the flowers, but I'm not so crazy about picking up petals & pruning--LOL! Hope you had a good weekend. Thanks for choosing to spend some of your time checking my blog--I really appreciate it.
