Stretch Your Stamps 2 - Day 1 (Second Card)

I managed to watch the rest of the videos from Day 1's class last night and made an additional 3 cards!!!  Wow, even I am impressed!  I used an open background stamp which I heat embossed with white embossing powder onto watercolour paper.  I then coloured it in with some Inktense Pencils using a waterbrush.  After cutting that piece up I ended with enough to make three cards, here is  one of them, very simple:

Paper: watercolour (unknown); cardstock (PTI)
Ink: Inktense Pencils; Adirondack Denim dye ink
Stamps: Truly Appreciated (Hero Arts); Allover Pattern (Penny Black)
Other: corner chomper; PTI Large Scallop Die; White Embossing powder (HA)

Off to watch the Day 2 videos.  I suspect they will be just as good as Day 1's and hopefully that means I end up with a few more cards for my friends market, and perhaps I can get started on Christmas Cards!!!

Have a blessed day!
