OLS9 - Details

Wow! What an amazing assortment of styles we saw this month - from graphic to collage, to classic to abstract! It really shows that all you need is paper and ink to make incredible cards! Thanks so much for sharing your talent and creativity this month!

Here are some of the details that we loved this month:

Ardyth's Details:

Karen's use of sponging with different colours of ink creates a gorgeous background for her snowflake!

Jasleen's brightly-coloured squares create an a-MAZE-ing optical illusion!

Julene's use of two rectangles to form a square is really inventive!

Karen's Details

 Kimberly's gorgeous image stamped in those colours is so warm and welcoming.

 Maura's gorgeous card for Autumn is just stunning with the motion of the leaves and the fabulous colours.

Sherrie M. used squares to create a great set of all occasion cards, would make a great gift.

Heather's Details

Janine B used white on kraft which is a wonderful colour combination especially with the bright pops of blue and red.

Kobylkin used rich warm colours and a four part collage to create a beautiful square. Combining three leaves with an intricate circle pattern is unusual and effective.

Janet's partial square and overlapping butterfly lead the eye on towards the sentiment.

Cheryl's Details:

Tonya's use of a two color background brought life to her tranquil seascape.

Caroline's frame of candles caught my eye.  So fun and playful!

Chriss's card has a wonderful botanical feel and pleasing color palette.
