You should have arrived here from Judy's Blog. You don't want to miss her fantastic artwork!
Now to introduce you to 3 different techniques on the CD
The above card showcases the Gesso Frames technique. This was such a fun card to make. The stamp is from Great Impressions and was stamped over designer paper. That's all I can tell you or I would have to (well you know) LOL!
This card showcases the Acrylic Gesso technique I love a technique that has some mystery to it. You never quite know what the end result will be until you finish the technique. It builds and builds as you move forward. I was quite happy at the end and you will be too when you give this a try! The stamps I used are from Inkadinkado and Art Impressions
My last card showcases the Distressed Gesso Resist technique. Have you noticed that I used Gesso for all of my techniques? Just wondering! This technique is also one of those mystery techniques, LOL! I was so pleased with the end result! The stamp is from Stamps Happen. Cute isn't it? BTW, those are pinwheels not flowers, (could have fooled me.)
Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope I provided you with some creative inspiration. Your next stop is Ann's blog.
Just in case you lose your way, here is a list of all the designers blogs in the order you should follow them:

All wonderful cards but my heart flip-flopped when I saw the Acrylic Gesso one. Love, love, love that bkgrd. and it goes so well with the stamp you chose.
