I recently got my CTMH Fall/Winter new-stamp set swap cards.  I love this card by Linda Caler.  It's so peaceful!  She used the Archival Black stamp pad with a waterbrush to color the bird.  (It's subtle, but beautiful.)

She also used the Magnifique paper pack.  She used the back side of the blue paper with the big peacock feathers.  I don't usually look at the backs of my papers much -- you should try it!  You might even like the back better than the front!

As always, if you have questions about how a technique you see here, or a CTMH product, feel free to contact me!

We will be making a variation of this card at the October card class.  You'll just have to wait and see ... and be surprised.
