Some New Cards as of Aug. 22nd 2010

I had a spell where I wasn't making any cards, just tending to "life".  But, I've started up again and here are some recent cards and things I've made.  Hope you like them.

This is a card I made just today.  It is using a technique I just learned.. faux designer paper tearing.. The "torn designer paper" in the center is not torn nor designer paper at all.. I inked the background then used some rooster stamps I have, then added the dots.  I really like this technique.  I learned it from one of Dawns youtube video's.  She's the best.

This is a candy bar slider.  I love it, the ghost and happy halloween are popped up, so the web is suspended in the middle.  The eyes of the bat on top are orange.  The colors didn't come out very well.. but this is really adorable.

 The suspended spider is very creepy looking, it is flocked, so it is furry.. you can't really see the top of the card very well, but it is embossed with a spider web that is sparkled, and has 2 bats popped off of it with yellow and red eyes. Again, colors are much more vibrant in person.

FABULOUS, girl! The wedding one is GORGEOUS and I'm really digging the halloween ones! The first one answers my question that I recently asked in one of our pm's. LOVE that technique! Even while holding the card in person, it looks like torn paper! So cool!
