So, I finally carved out a few minutes to be crafty and make a card this week. I actually made two cards, this first one being for Papertrey Ink’s Make It Monday #33, with Lisa Johnson’s tutorial on Frosted Images.
This is another new technique for me. I’m not sure I did very well with it, a little heavy on the smudging and rubbing, I think, especially around the brown portions. Although, I probably could have done a better job if I could have found a bit more time for ‘playing.’ I was in a bit of a hurry between scheduled activities and such. But I’ve been wanting to create something and get involved in a few challenges again – I think I’m just taking what I can get right now! I suppose for a first try, it’s not too bad.

I like the technique, and I can definitely see myself playing around with it more in the future. I was beyond excited to have received my Autumn Rose cardstock earlier this week and very eager to get it opened and use some. It’s gorgeous – I love it!! It’s a perfectly rich, earthy color for me.
