As I promised (just a day later) more yoga cards! I am having so much fun with this set.
The card below was originally intended for a challenge over at PTI. It was to use a stamp to create a background image. The green fancy design is actually a cross stamp I had bought at Michael's. I took the stamp and turned it upside down between each stamping. Then I could not figure what to do and put the card stock aside. So, when I started working with this yoga image from MFT, I decided it would go with this card. For the purple strip at the bottom of the card, I used the lotus flower image from the stamp set and did the same process of turning the stamp up side down between stamping. I love the end results of this card.
On the next card I have to share, i used a paper piecing technique. The body image of the "headless woman" is the perfect image for paper piecing, it is not intricate and has clean borders. So I used the same designer paper (from SU) to re stamp the image and cut out the shirt and then glue it on to my original colored in image! So fun :)
See that pretty pink strip behind the flower? That is my fun new SU punch :)

I have been having a lot of fun with this stamp set. I even made 2 more cards last night, but maybe next time I will show you something different.

Well, off to Canobie Lake today! My work gave all employees tickets to take the family for a "Fun Family Day" :) Kind of overcast out there, but I am glad it is not 100 degrees! Just hope the rain holds out for most of the day!
Have a great day!
