Technostamper's Monday Sketch

I have to tell you, I like things neat and lined up. I have no problem putting a circle on a card, but then layering squares over the top of the that was a challenge for me. Putting the square patterned paper behind the circle helped a little. At least the squares have something to line up with, LOL!

This card was made using Mary Jo's Monday Blog Challenge. Go over and check out her blog!

Another Father's Day card for my Etsy shop. This is using a long retired SU set that I still love. It's a great set to use for watercoloring, and for spotlighting, whichi is what this technique is called. The rust layer is torn using the Tearing Edge tool, something else I haven't gotten out for quite a while. It sure does make tearing a straight line easier though.

Have a great Memorial Day everyone!
