Plaid Technique Card #1

Good evening, it feels a lot later than it is tonight for some reason, it is only 6pm but it feels like it’s around 8pm. Tonight I have a card to share with you that I made at Jacques house on Monday night. It was a techniques class which she holds once a month, on Monday  we did the technique called plaid silhouette. This is where you cover your image in one colour, then you get your next colour and using your ink pad press down using the edge to create a diamond effect.

Here is the first card we made:
