Faux Etched Copper

This is one of my favorite recently-learned techniques.  The technique is one of the featured techs in this month's Technique Junkies Newsletter.   If you haven't tried it, you must as it is easy and loads of fun.  I could spend all day working with my copper and each time the copper would look different.  I have uploaded one example here using Artistic Outpost stampsn on the faux etched copper background..

Here is a second card I made with the same technique.  I like not putting anything on the background.

Wings-A Challenge

I was anxious to see the Wing  Challenge come up on Gingersnap Creations.  When it was announced, I came up with all sorts of ideas, but somehow I ended up with this primitive bird.   It is made up of a number of  techniques.  The body is Starch Smoosh, the head Sprayed Dye,   the tail is Chalk Lines and the legs are Faux Designer Paper.  Of course, I had to add a wing.  I though a bright pink feather was perfect.  Now for the greeting--I couldn't resist.  I had to finish the card with a little humor.
