Here is another card from the recent workshop. All the materials are from Stampin Up. At home, I almost never use a sponge to shade with. I use Tim Holtz tool that is a wood block with velcro and then a piece of felt. I am unhappy with my shading on this. The hostess did not have the brown behind the flower but I felt it needed it. I also stamped the small flower out of a different color than the hostess. I like doing my own thing, even on cards that are planned for me. It makes them my own.
