Inspsired by......Jennifer McGuire

Isn't so much fun when you see a technique that just inspires you to create... well that's what happened to me watching Jennifer McGuire doing a white pencil highlighting technique (see her video here)

I so enjoyed this technique.  Here are three cards I've made so far....

This first one uses a large Stampin' Up! roses.  I don't know the name of the set as I got it second hand and it is not noted on it.   Added a white embossed sentiment from Simon Says Stamp.

The second one uses all Hero Arts stamps.  The florals are from Night and Day Flowers set.  And  I used the wood mounted Happy Birthday to You for the sentiment.   As this is a one layer card I have added this to the challenge at Simon Says Stamp.

 And my final one uses an Altenew floral set with another Hero Arts sentiment.  This time I cut it on an angle and mounted it with some black matting

I really am enjoying this technique.  It makes such a great CAS that you can dress up if you want.  Plus the beautiful bold colours are fabulous. 

Thanks for stopping by.
