Good afternoon! I'm back with my homework for Clean and Simple Card Making II, Lesson 2. Today it's all about one layered cards and I learned great tips from the teachers and also remembered some techniques I already know but always forget to put in use. So here we go with a card and a tag... And sorry in advance for the pics, not very good light today around here.
My card features the two kinds of masking. After sponging the inks, I stamped some patterns to add texture without adding bulk. With the washi tape strip I mixed yesterday's tips from Julie and Jennifer: it adds interest, pattern and helps balance the offset stars. The biggest star has some tone over tone stripes but the pic doesn't show it, so here's a closer shot.
Second, a tag with yet more masking and Debby's tip about debossing an image to make it pop without adding bulg. I also loved Julie's gold glitter dots from yesterday, so I made some silver dots of my own :)
Oh, and remember yesterday's lesson about keeping your work clean and without smudges? Obviously I didn't pay enough attention, because I had to repeat the whole tag due to "ink happenings".Thanks for stopping by and for your sweet comments, they make my day!
