You should have arrived here from Amy's blog - you'll find all the class details below.


I created my card using the "texture" component of the course. I added lots of textures - translucent embossing paste, cork, wood dots, glitter and a button with twine. 

The stamps are fabulous Reverse Confetti of course - Count Your Rainbows. I filled in the key word with a copic marker, and painted overtop with a gold wink of stella pen. The focal layer was cut with the Class Act Confetti Cuts, as was the cork banner. I used the Office Edges dies to add a little interest to my panel. The text paper banners were cut with the Tag Me dies. And of course I had to use my favourite Arrow Die
