Advanced Technique Club's September Meeting

Just wanted to share my most recent cards with you. These are for next weeks Advanced Technique Club. Normally, I don't show them ahead of time, BUT, I allow my girls to bring a guest and they wanted to show what we were making to entice their friends, so I had to share with my girls. Hey, if they know, you might as well too.

This first one is a halloween card that uses sponging as the main technique. I used it to create clouds, but you could use this to create all kinds of backgrounds. I like the look of this card with the DSP behind it.

Next is a fall card. to make this card I used Emboss resist and a brayer. What a fun toy the brayer is! I haven't played with it much but will be doing more of it for sure! I originally learned the technique from Andrea Walford. You can find her tutorial here- http://andreawalford.com/?p=672

Katie - I LOVE the first one a lot. What a super cool sky! I'm going to have to try that. I also like the fall card - just love those colors and those cute little leaves!
