Just a quick post today to share my second card from day 2 of class. I had a really hard time with this one. I don't have a perspective on depth and only had this stamp set that I thought would work. I'm posting it anyhow because I am learning and trying to do each thing they teach. I did the other card four times and never did get it close to right. I'll show it to you but don't think I will post it in the gallery. I used yellow and rusty hinge to ink with  and it didn't show up very well. Then the sentiment was crooked. I have used the grid lines, a stamp-a-ma-jig, a t square ruler, and a regular ruler and I cannot get things straight. I can't write in a straight line either. My writing goes up every time at the end.  Be kind to one another.


Oh, I didn't take a picture of the other card. Maybe later.  I am going to share this one in the gallery on http://www.onlinecardclasses.com/CS3/days-3-4-student-gallery-optical-illusion/.

Good for you for trying so many new-to-you techniques!! I've been there, too--having days when no matter what I tried, I just couldn't get things to line up or turn out like I saw them in my head. And then, of course, are the projects when everything is going swell through all the different steps, andthen at the end, I get a smudge of ink right where it shouldn't be!!! Depth is really challenging, but I think you picked the perfect stamp set to try it out. You've assembled a lovely scene here. The depth looks awesome!
