This was the very first card I made for the display boards. Don't you just love the Kinda Eclectic stamp set. It was on the top of my wish list when I looked through the new catalog. I can't tell you how happy I was to get this in my box of supplies. I was going for a shabby, distressed look but I didn't quite achieve it. My engineering background just doesn't let me be free--everything ends up looking orderly.
Quite a few years ago I took an oil painting class at the San Antonio School of Art and my instructor told me I painted too politely! Now I'm pretty sure that wasn't a compliment. I was trying so hard to get out of the box. I ended up doing best at sketching since that fit with my need to be precise.
What is your style? Or what style would you love to emulate? I'd love to hear from you.
Thanks for stopping by!
