Okay, so while I still don't feel 'great', the aspirin has kicked in, and I can now hold my head up long enough to share a little something with you...
A new batch of card samples recently arrived from smART Cookie, Donna Duquette. All samples have been added to Donna's smART gallery, and each features at least one inchie, so with nine new cards, there are inchies and inches of fun to be seen!
The thing that really stood out to me in this batch, was the superb job Donna did in utilizing a variety of techniques, styles, and mediums... These cards aren't just variations of one another, but distinctive entities. That fact alone, made it difficult to choose just one teaser card to show you, but I finally settled on this card which Donna titled, Nature's Sketchbook.
Donna created graduated, Copic marker backgrounds on each square, overstamped them with the images in black, then turned each square into a tile using VersaMark Dazzle ink and UTEE.
The rest of the card is pretty much self explanatory -- Cuttlebug embossing, button accents, and a border-punched base panel for the inchies. (Notice how the chosen border ties into Donna's title... Very clever!)
Donna's samples have also been featured in her different blog posts, so if you see something in the gallery that needs further explanation, try visiting Dees' Studio, and read about it there.
Extra Tip: Little Bits images make great envelope/label accents for return addresses.
Lord willing, I'll see you next week,
