SENDING YOU PRAYERS

This week Altenew Academy is having another class and this time it's with Kelly Latevola doing one-layer cards.  Yesterday I worked all afternoon on the first lesson and thought for sure I flunked the class right off the bat.  So not being one to give up, I started entirely over with a new card today.  

 
Kelly's card used background stamping with individual stamps and that's where the problem was yesterday - I am just rubbish at that and getting something to my satisfaction. Today I used the Sketchy Flower (very large) stamp for the background.  Used the Altenew alcohol markers in the soft greys for shading in the flowers and also for the bit of green on the leaves.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts as I had nothing from Altenew that would work for this technique.  A few black Nuvo drops covered up a few little smudges.  Am way behind in the homework department for this class, but will carry on!  

Thanks for dropping by and love to read your kind comments.
