Couldn't wait to try the Mesh Direct technique from the current TechniqueJunkies newsletter, and I got a mesh bag with my onions from the grocery last night so timing was perfect! I believe the ink colors I used were Stampin' Up!'s Vintage Violet and Cranberry Crisp. I wanted a lot of the background to show so I thought this stamp seemed perfect.

Card measures 5 1/2" x 6 3/4"

This card is pretty simple. I stamped the image (unknown - sorry, no marks on the wood block) with words over the background using black Staz-On ink, and again on a scrap of white cardstock. I colored the image on the white cs with colored pencils, trimmed the girl on chaise lounge closely, and adhered it over the image stamped on the background by running her thru a Xyron to apply adhesive.

I thought about adding something - embellishments, etc. - but I was happy with it as it was, so I mounted a piece of black cs to the lower corner before adhering it to a confetti plummish piece of cs. Then to the bottom layer, which is a grayish speckled soft pink.

Thanks for looking!

very fun Nancy! I know what you mean about adding to "it"! I'm working on an atc right now that is a stamped collage type and I just don't think it needs anything! lol
