Class: With Sincere Sympathy w/ Kathy Rosecrans

Join Kathy Saturday afternoon and create 3 beautiful floral themed cards featuring stamps by Hero Arts.  Kathy uses a single flower design as the focal point on each, but the results are very different.  Let her show you how to amp up the versatility of a simple image by using layers and color.  Kathy's trademark vintage stylings are the perfect touches to complete the quiet elegance necessary for a sympathy card.  She'll take the challenge out of creating this type of card and you can apply these same techniques to make cards of all themes for all-occasions. 

May 26th, Saturday:  1:00pm - 4:00pm (class fee $25.00)
