2016-03-08; Themed swap card; “A:


This months themed swap has to be something that has the letter “A” in it. It can either be an image or technique.

I went with images of architecture and the word “art.”

Here is a close look so you can see some of the texture. You can see that I added some texture paste and a scrap of the woven gold ribbon.

And one last look…

I used spellbinder border dies to make this look fancier.

I thought I should come up with a longer list of “A” words….

My research of “A” words and images in the stamps that I used, I found the word adroit (pronounced uh-droit) which means nimble use of hands…see the hands in the center, fingertips touching? that’s being adroit.

This image also is adumbrate (pronounced a-duhm-breyt) which means to produce a faint image or resemblance, to outline or sketch. This certainly looks like a sketch with all the drafting lines.

Who knew I had so many “A” words in this months themed swap? There are probably many more.

      By the way if they are asking you to leave the inside blank or to use a post-it, maybe they should just consider buying cards from you. The only time I leave a card completely blank inside is when we have card swaps in our Yahoo group……then I put in a note with a post-it or other piece of paper.
