CASING MICHELLE ZINDORF


We needed a masculine birthday card for someone who was turning 85 last Thursday. Masculine cards are always difficult for me...........so Pinterest was my source of inspiration once again.  I ran across a card that had been cased from one that Michelle Zindorf had made.  The technique they used was "direct to paper" using the ink pads.  I did not have good success doing it that way.  By sponging the colors on instead I was much happier with the results that I got.  

You can see Michelle Zindorf's card here:  Serene Silhouette – Tutorial #542 |

Instead of the silhouette image that they used, I pulled out one of the stamps from Stampin' Up! Lovely as a Tree.    I also drew some little birds into the "sky" and added some random dashes with a white gel pen to the "water".

This is a design I believe I will use again. It was easy and I was very pleased with the results.  What do you think?  I'd love to hear from you.

Thanks for stopping by!
