Card Swap Fun

I’ve recently tried to get more active in the SCS community. For those non crafty… or non web surfing crafty folks SCS, or Splitcoast Stampers is a huge online group of paper crafters with tons of talent, resources and challenges. I joined a direct mail swap group where each month we have a theme to make cards and then you send a card to each member, they in turn send a card back to you. May was the first round and our theme was monochromatic. It was so much fun! I got so much happy mail throughout the month. Its funny, I love getting letters and cards in the mail, so much more than emails… yet I rarely get anything besides junk mail.

I went with oranges for my color scheme… since I had a bazzill monochromatic pack to make it easy! The flowers and sentiment are all from the TAC set Blessings to You.

I love the effect that Versa Mark has on colored cardstock. I stamped and then touched up certain spots with the Versa Mark pen to darken them.

Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a look, please let me know what you think! Have a wonderful day!
