    LOVE!!!! Does the challenge include both sides of the card? Or were you on a roll? They are all wonderful, including the one you felt needed something.. it is perfect as is!! HUGS Pamikins

    No Pam only one side, I am actually thinking of starting another deck and covering the other side of each card with a piece of press and seal so that I can keep the deck clean and then use it as a gift — I mean you really wouldn’t want to play with them but unless it was solitaire šŸ˜‰ lol or but I was thinking of each card had a quote on them it would make a nice coffee table conversation piece. I can still do that with mine, but it will go on my coffee table I won’t give it as a gift because it doesn’t work for my AOCP (Art Obsessed Compulsive Perfection)

    They turned out great. My favorite is umbrella man!!!

  5. I actually came to see your Timmy tag which is still showing on my sidebar. Then I got distracted, especially after I saw my name (grin). Your cards look SO much better than mine. Very impressive. I agree that the faces of mine got gesso on them, so I also plan to decorate that side, possibly with a saying of some sort.

    I see you are still stamping. I’m trying, but even after your good tutelage, I still have trouble getting a good image. I really like what you have done here, kiddo!! Glad you joined. Sorry, I’m not on FB.

      Thanks E šŸ™‚ My friend Boo a long time ago, showed me stamping on Deli Paper and then gluing the image down. The image just shows up so much better. You can’t always do it because the products you use might not be permanent but when I can I do. You have to use a permanent ink pad like Palette, Staz-On or Ranger Archival ink.
