The Amazing CFR

The Amazing CFR

Today, I’m going to pay homage to a wonderful demonstrator who has been a great support to me over the past few months, answering my endless questions and showing me tons of new techniques each month.  This lovely person would be Christyne Richardson, or as she is better know Christyne FREAKIN’ Richardson (aka CFR)!  Her site Handstamped from the Heart is always filled with such beautiful cards and inspiration.

Last month, I went to her techniques class.  I learned so many new things.  First of all, I need to get a Colour Spitzer!  Take a look at the cards we made:


From the above, we have two-step stamping using the Stamp-a-ma-jig.  Next, we have watercolouring an image first stamped with Staz-On.  Then triple layer stamping.  From there, the trees were done in emboss resist.  Finally, we have the masterpiece of colour that took a lot of work with a very awesome result – tie dying by spritzing and splatzing!

Well, when she was trying to demonstrate how to do the tie dye technique, she got very involved…

I got her fingerprint!!!  🙂  And since this may be worth something some day, I totally got her to sign it!  Heck, I may even have it framed!!  🙂  On the downside, I had to redo all that yellow on a new piece of paper!!  LOL

I hope you enjoy your day!
