The Coolest Accident Technique!

These are the cards we made in class today. For the first card I wanted to use the Rose Garden die cut and color it with sponge daubers.  I got out my daubers, sponged away... and wow! When I lifted the pretty colored die cut to put on my card, I was delighted at what I saw on my scratch paper! It worked like a stencil, leaving a beautiful negative image. Naturally, I grabbed some Whisper White to put under another die cut to do it on purpose!! Wow, so pretty:)

The last one is an origami folded card for the men in our lives.
