My Latest Demos

For my workshop this weekend, I decided to demo some new cards that I spent WAAAAYYYY too much time creating. But my tinies went to stay with my parents for the weekend, and my hubby went camping, so I had plenty of time to just play.

The Monkey Business card was lots of fun. I got the sign idea off of SCS—"Knit Happens" by mav1126
—but I thought tying the linen thread around the post and distressing the edges to give it more umph. When I stamp the bananas, I think I am going to rock 'n roll the edges in green or brown to give it more contrast. And I am going to stamp one or two more vines across the top of the white cardstock.

My Easter card uses a color combo I just came up with (although, I guess it probably exists out there already anyway): old olive, certainly celery, regal rose, and bashful blue. I know it's not the traditional Easter-pastel look, but it works, and it looks much better in person. The camera washed out the image a little, but it's a great card to showcase the aquapainters, grosgrain ribbon, brads, and the round tab punch.
