Here is the second card that we did in the BRAYER WORKSHOP on Saturday morning, isn't it gorgeous???? I love Michelle's artistic perspective and her creative technique. Notice the way that she taught us to use the palm tree stamp below?
Stampin' Up's stamp set, Plant Hope, is on page 119 in the Idea Book & Catalog. The way I created the palm tree on our card was to use just part of the stamp. I used a marker to color in the fronds of the palm, eliminating the trunk. Then I stamped the fronds twice and connected them to the 'island' by drawing the trunks in with the Basic Black Marker.
I have one more card to show you later this week. In the meantime, I think this is a great way of thinking 'outside the box' when we are looking at our stamp sets or the images in the Idea Book & Catalog. See what 'adjustments' you can make next time you are browsing through! We can all be more creative ~ I just know it! Susan Elise
