Country Sunrise

I told you Friday I would post the other card I made with Sharri Seffens while in Wisconsin on Saturday, well, as it turned out, much was going on and I didn't get it posted. I apologize. So, TODAY, here is the card I promised. Again, Sharri and I used the brayering technique that she taught to me while I visited. I LOVE how this technique just makes it's own reflections and highlights. My card is a bit "wonky" in size. I am so use to making the standard A2 card size that I went thru THREE full pages of Gina K's Pure Luxury Rocket Red before I actually cut a piece close enough to fit the design! HA!! And honestly, after I finished... I turned it over to put my "stamped by" mark on it and realized, I scored it wrong! LOL So... I had to trim more. Sheesh.. I really need to get out of the habit if the same old card size, huh? OR, buy more Gina K paper!!! I'm sure she wouldn't mind... ha! I wanted my card to resemble more a country feel to it so I added the red/black checked DP to it hoping to remind you of those flannel shirts and such you see farmers wear often. Stereotype, I'm sure, but I love it. They seem warm, and homey to me. Sharri and I did our sun first by sponging in a circle she punched from a Post-It Note paper and then we used Versamark to cover the sun and clear embossed it. I love how it really makes it shine, like every good sun should, right? Can't wait to try some of the brayering technique on my own and see if I get the same resuls... you KNOW how old I am and forgetful!!! Hee Hee Again, it was just sooooo much fun in Wisconsin and I am very grateful to all who helped make my birthday so special. Have a great day!! *smile* Signature
