Another month, another CCEE Stampers hostess. Brenda is starting her month as hostess with a technique that I rarely use -- Direct to Paper. Brenda gave us a link to the tutorial on Splitcoaststampers, which I checked out, and then decided to dive right in. I'm not sure I'm happy with the results, but it is what it is!
The heron image is actually a line image, but I colored it in with black to make the silhouette.
Why don't you pop over to the CCEE Stampers blog and see what the rest of the team did with this technique.
