Favorite Technique

I just signed up to be a new consultant for Close to my Heart this month and have been busy playing with my new supplies and making plans for my 1st home gathering. In designing the few cards for the Make and Take, I intentionally tried to create very simple, stress free cards for my guests to create. I did though want to add at least one stamping technique to make the cards unique and look more complicated than they really are.

I chose probably my favorite and most easy technique to add color and depth to my stamped image, "The Rock and Roll" to create this simple 4x4 card. I love that by simply rolling or rocking your stamp into a second color, your stamped image is completely transformed into a tiny piece of art. This technique works perfect for the fruit in CTMH's Mayberry Workshop on the Go. I am loving this sweet and simple card!
Stay tuned for the remaining two cards you will have the chance to create at my Open House in June.

Glad you've joined CTMH and have jumped in at H2H too! Rock 'n roll is my go-to technique too. I love the sentiment up the side of your focal images. You're already off to a great CTMH start!
