Thank You.

I've been taking Jennifer McGuire's and Kristina Werner's Online Stretch Your Stamps class and it's been such a great learning experience.  I've only watched a few of the videos, but the best part of these classes is that once you sign up, they are accessible to you forever.  

The class on day 11 was about using reverse stamps.  Well the choice for this was easy, I only own one!  But I love the class samples, so I know I will be on the lookout for more reverse stamps.

The challenge this week at CAS-ual Friday blog (CFC62) to make a card with a black base, perfect time to use what was taught in class.

The reverse and sentiment stamps are from Stampin' UP! (For All You Do).  I stamped black VersaMagic ink onto white paper.  It looks like I'll have to do a better job of ink coverage next time.  One of the tips from class was to use a brayer.  I colored the flowers with EK Success pencils.  I've had them for years so it was great to use them.  Gems are from Recollections.

Thanks for popping by today.
