STAMP ON!!!

OK - here are some new cards...

In reading the exploits of one of my INKredible Impressions sisters (our demo group) - on her blog- sistah Karen Barber made a new friend with a well known SCS member and artist Michelle Zindorf. Michelle makes some cool cards and very generously shares the techniques on how to make them. I have CASE'd two cards and I wanted to share them with you. This was a big stretch for me - and I think they came out ok. The sea scene needs some practice - it uses a roller and I need to keep practicing on how to NOT make definite lines and blend more without making the colors too dark or deep. Let's just say - you did NOT get to see the FIRST try of that one!! LOL From Michelle's tutorial - I have used all Stampin' Up!® product and stamps. Anywho - to share with you these two great stamping friends in Ohio, I am including their links at the bottom of the post. Now - I'd love to have you post "Maureen sent me" - except they'd say "Maureen, who?!?!?!" LOL I just know good stampers when I see them - and I would not have found Michelle without perusing Karen's blog - and she has only talked to me once on a conference call with Tina! But she is a known talent in our group and EVERYONE always wants one of her cards in a swap, I can tell you!! OK - 'nuff said - on to the cards!!!!
