cards arrived in mail

Received this card from Irene H. as part of a monthly group exchange. The technique she used is called Faux Silk - stamp images on tissue paper, carefully color images, crumple tissue paper then smooth tissue paper. Apply adhesive to neutral cardstock and spread tissue over adhesive. Trim excess - Sounds easy - famous last words!
Lovely card - thanks Irene for sharing not only your talent but your technique.
The other card is from Karen G. - she used hot pink and cool caribbean colors to create this wonderful card. Thanks Karen and the saying is so right "Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.
