Debbie - 2 really interesting cards. Like the colours in the top one and the 2nd one has a more manly feel so a useful one to have in your stash.

Great background on the first card.

I think they turned out very cool and I'd love to know what the technique of the first one is??? I like how the second card kind of looks like pyramids.

Debbie Moran said...

Debbie, I don't think you need practice. the faux tear effect is wonderful and your second card is great with the cheveron shapes. good work/art!

Debbie,
Your first is lovely and elegant. Your second card is really awesome - you created what looks to me to be an architectural addition to the columns - very, very cool!
