It's been skewed!

I've been working on some projects for upcoming classes at the LSS in Green Valley, AZ and, since I need a card for a Technique Junkie 1 on 1 swap, I kept on playing!  I made a card using the Skewed Pyramid technique from the Dec10/Jan11 newsletter.  Are you ready??  It's kinda weird looking but I do like it!

I used some brown cardstock from my stash, brown Twine, and the stamp Twinkle In the Eye, a current hostess set.  This stamp is a winter image but I have used it mostly for Christmas.  It does NOT mention Christmas in any way, shape or form as you can see in the next photo.

Here's a close up of the "skewed" pyramid.  I used Burnt Umber PH ink on white cardstock to get to this point.  Isn't is just wild!

I also used a gem from a Brown/Ivory Gem collection I picked up recently.  I love the ivory color and it works great with this card.

Countdown.... I'll be leaving for Wichita, KS on June 23 for our annual convention. That's less than 2 weeks!  I don't have my swaps done but I have them started!

I will be posting the "Around the World" class I'm working on soon.  I'm supposed to have 4 classes (2 for July and 2 for August) ready with samples by next Thursday morning! Ugh!  Well, 1 down anyway...   LOL!
What new technique have you played with recently??  Come on, get to stamping!
