Dawn McVey *Day 3* AND A VIDEO

Here's our next beautiful card by Dawn:
Once again, I am in complete awe of Dawn's daring color choices. I love the bold red background on her card. The layered stamping in the background has such a natural look. And the beautiful tag and sentiment go perfectly with the background images!
Here is my take. I made my red/orange background using distress ink--Fired Brick and Rusty Hinge on white cardstock.
Now on to my next video. I am going to try and post a new video and card each Wednesday, as I get make a Project Of the Week (POW!) card for my local scrapbook store's blog, Mementos. Here's the card for this week:
And here's the video. I show a couple of techniques in this video including masking and reverse/mirror image stamping. Thanks so much for watching!!!


And did you notice---no wierd mirror images of my hand or ink pads in this video?! LOL- I'm learning... thanks for your patience as this is only my second video. :)
HUGS and see you tomorrow with another truly amazing card by Dawn!
Card #1: Floral (Hero Arts H5424), Sentiment (Papertrey Ink)

Gorgeous card Jill- and your second video is wonderful- love the "speediness" of it all and the fun music! I like how you did the sewing on your card base before you inked it up- never thought to do that before! I also love the way you use the overhead transparency to to a reverse stamp- brilliant!

Reverse stamping with a transparency? Brilliant! (Me slapping my forehead here) Great video. Moves along at the right pace, very informative. My only tiny suggestion would be to briefly lift the item in use in front of the camera right before you start using it? Like the stamp set, the cover of the inkpad, etc. Can't wait to see more. Thanks for all the effort, time and sharing.
