Summer School: Day 5 Symmetry

Hey there, after a weekend of camping and no stamping I needed to play a little. Over on the My Favorite Things blog they were having five days of summer school lesson. Friday was the last day and I was gone so I am playing catch up today. Our lesson was symmetry on cards. Now I probably don't practice this technique very much.

Today's card started with a piece of Bristol smooth card stock that I blended Ripe Persimmon and Crushed Olive Distress ink on. Then spritzed with water and patted with a dry cloth. I then die cut the Leaf Sihlouette from both the blended panel and a white panel. Glued them together and mounted to the front of a top folding, 110 lbs white card base and then stamped the greeting in the same Crushed Olive ink.  This is also a symmetrical remake of a previous leaf card for the Tuesday Transformation over on the PTI blog. 

I also will be entering it in the Simply Less is More colour challenge.

Yay, I graduated!! Thanks for visiting me today. All five of my cards are over on my Instagram page. Sue.

  3. Wow, totally in love with these cards! I love the symmetric design of your card for us at LIM. The tiny splatters in your inked leaves add a lot of "artsy" feel. Wonderful contrast. Thanks for joining us at Less Is More!
