With this class we concentrated on doing the Wax Paper or Faux Parchment Technique. This turned out to be the perfect technique for creating male cards. We got to use lots of different techniques with this card, including – Crimper, Sponging, Big Shot plus a different type of fold, which is what this card turned out to be – Twisted Easel. They are such fun to create.
Our class has seen an increase in the last 2 weeks from 10 regulars to about 16 now & growing, so I have been thinking how the class can be managed now that I will have 16+ regulars each week & I think it has just hit me, but more about that next week.
Using this stamp set, I didn’t want to make a male’s card, so thought why not a girl’s card & use all the pretty colours fro the “Subtles Family”. I’m quiet happy with the final result & screams “Girly”.
