Exploring Swap Ideas…

Today I had to just stop and clean up the mess from the “Hope Note” episode yesterday for Memorial Hospital.  Whew! this studio looked like an unnamed hurricane had blown through.

Once that was done I played with several ideas for the Salt Lake City Convention swap.  I’ve signed up for a couple of specific swaps and will have to decide once those are finished if I’ll have enough time to work on general swaps.  It’s one of my favorite things to do at convention and then at night I spread the new swaps all over my bed and just soak them all in.  Once that’s done my mind is on overload and there’s no hope of sleep.

Today’s card uses a masking technique that is fun to do.  Here’s the card…


With the masking it makes the blue flower look as if it is overlapping the yellow.  Not hard to do at all and gives an interesting look.  A video is in the works.  But if you are familiar with the technique and want to use this card for inspiration, here are the Stuff ‘N Digits…
