Pattern Play Day #5




I've enjoyed this class!  I'm looking at my huge stash of patterned papers in a whole new light.  Today's technique was almost like therapy....laying those strips of paper in the criss-cross pattern.   I chose Authentique's "Fresh" collection for the first card, using one of the images from a sheet in the pad as the focal image.  I added Glossy Accents on the woman and her parasol.   The second card is made with paper from one of my favorite Basic Grey's "Porcelain" collection.  The floral stamp is from I Brake For Stamps and I inked it with two SU markers.   The sentiment is from Hero Arts.  Both card fronts were dry-embossed in Sizzix folders.

Hello Evelyn
I must apologise for not commenting on your class cards this week, Rob was home 'clinging onto life' as he put it, so I did not have much time on the computer.
But I have browsed through now and I am just so enthralled with what you are learning in how to use your Pp.
I can see you are having fun, it shows in the cards, I am liking them all for different reasons, the tone on tone Penny Black is beautiful, the large pattern paper card is loud and colourful and I love your design. The stars are unique and paper gorgeous,the last two are also full of life and colour.
Great cards all of them
Smiles:)
