red, black and white

I had a lot of fun creating this card. I did a resist technique using two different stamps on the background, and then on the little white piece of cardstock, I again used two stamps and used a paper towel to blot some of the ink away from the middle of the stamp before I stamped the paper. I hadn't really done that before and I like how it turned out.

Here's the card: (Sorry for the dark pictures. Something went weird with my camera and I lost all the pics I had taken since Sunday, so I hurried and snapped these but I didn't take the time to edit them.)
And here's the close up:

My mom actually crocheted that flower. I don't know what pattern she used or if she just made it up herself. I love it!

Happy Friday Eve!

I've been taking another online class these past 2 weeks. Even though I have learned a lot of new techniques, I haven't really been in the mood to make a ton of cards. However, I did make this Halloween card. I love Halloween!
