In the Shadows

Evening Everyone
Have you had a good weekend?
It's still very quiet here, which seems very weird, and its been unbearably hot so I really haven't got as much done as would have liked, but that seems fairly normal don't you think. The weekend always seems to go by in a flash and then it's Monday again.
These are a couple of the cards that I made for the afternoon class at Lavender Lane on Saturday. The class was on Shadow Stamping. It's a great way of creating a coloured background.
With this first card, having created the background I have then used the same colour ink pad  to stamp my favourite Hobby Art Anna's Collection Just for You across the bottom and top edge of the panel. The greeting has been stamped onto a torn strip of vellum using Stazon ink.
This second card has a similar background only this time I've stamped and embossed the flowers in black to give a more dramatic contrast.
Once again I've added a torn strip of vellum which I have inked along the edges. No greeting this time although I might add one at a later date.
I often do that to a card, add a greeting when I've decided who the card is to be sent to, and for what occasion.
I'd better get to bed now before it gets too much later.
Nite nite. Love and hugs
