This is a card I designed for my most recent swap on SUDSOL.  It was for a Card of the Month contest.  I won the last contest for Scrapbook Page of the Month with my very first 6" x 6" page featured earlier.

I had a lot of fun making this card, and direct to paper inking is one of my favorite techniques.  It’s easy to add great dimension and totally change the appearance of the card stock with just an ink pad.

  1. This card is just BEAUTIFUL! I sure hope you win with it you deserve to.
