Well, I made it through alive…

I made it through my first cardio workout in a while… I’m still here. :) Of course, I made that 12 week commitment, so I guess I’ll go to the gym again today.

My card this morning uses the same layout as my Elvis card from Monday, but the stamps and embellishments change the ‘feel’. I am always short on masculine cards, and honestly, they are harder for me. I’ll add this one to my stash.

The Thomas Kinkaid image (The Good Life) is monochromatic with Lettuce ink. I stamp and use these TK images monochromatic about 84.2% of the time. I *could* color them, but why? I’ll leave the coloring to Sherrie! 😉 Magic Mesh, Prima Flowers and a Copper Krylon Pen complete this quick card. Here’s a hint for the Krylon pen: I use a piece of paper to mask off the inside of the image layer (so just the 1/8″ – 1/4″ border shows). Then take your leafing pen and mark the edge in one swift swoop without stopping or lifting your pen. You will have a very smooth, polished edge to frame your image without the need to add another layer.

  1. I love the copper metalics…I also like the mesh example I have some that was given to me and haven’t known what to do with it. Such a simple card yet beautiful
