Swing Reveal Card

I've been having trouble getting motivated, so I once again looked to Jennifer McGuire for inspiration.  She showed a technique for Swing Reveal Cards, so I decided to give it a try.  I found an old unmounted stamp of a wreath and used my Misti to stamp it on watercolor paper.  It takes several stampings to get a good image on this rough textured watercolor paper, so a Misti is helpful.  I then taped the watercolor paper to a piece of hardboard and colored it with watercolor crayons.  I hadn't use them for years, but they worked well for this project.

You will need to watch Jennifer's video to learn to make the swing feature. It involves layers, circle dies, a button and some glue.  If you are like me, you will need to watch it more than once to do it yourself.  The wreath swings to reveal the message under it.  Good luck.
