My Just One Card

I told you that I would post my Just One card that I swapped with Diane. Just One is a program that pairs up Technique Junkies for a one-on-one swap. You know how fun it is when you open up a grag bag to see what you got? Well, that is what it is like with the Just One card swap. You send off your card to your partner and see what you get in return. You don't know what technique you will be amazed at!

I had purchased some Opalite pads quite a while ago; I hadn't even removed the plastic wrap! I decided it was past time to use them! So I searched through the technique archives for a technique to use and found the Transparent Opalites. Because the Floral background stamp is so detailed I chose not to do any coloring on the back of the transparency and used the Opalites to provide all the color. I really like this technique because I feel it lends itself to a elegant card. Without further ado here is the card:

Click on the picture and you can get a closer look. You can almost see the shimmer from the Opalites. I think I really NEED some more of these Opalites!
