MC Mar/14 - Side Easel The Doors We Open - HB'm so loving making side easel cards. Beats me why I was so resistant to them...

Had a great play day with a friend yesterday. Made a pile of gelli prints using dye ink pads, stencils & misted with water, then die cut and created the flowers from this card.

Using Dreamweaver window stencil and translucent paste for the window & the carpet runner.

You can see all the details and descriptions and more views by clicking on card image. Enjoy.

I'm using a Quietfire Design quote & sentiment stamp on the inside.

What marvelous cards, Yogi, and yes, full of texture but also full of color and style! I really like the flowers you created, they are vibrant and beautiful. The window is terrific too, and I admit I have never tried a side easel card but you have intrigued me.

Thank you for taking time to check out our challenges and then share your creativity with us, lovely to see.
