Good morning! Back with my homework for day 6 of Clean and Simple Cardmaking II. I have to confess that I still haven't had time to watch the videos, crazy day around here yesterday, but last night I sat and at least played with the sketches. I made two different versions of Kristina's sketch.
This first one is a super free take on the sketch, but I love, love, love it. My husband came back yesterday after a week in Spain and guess what he brought me? A 24 box of Inktense pencils! They are beyond amazing! Truth is, there's not a product recommended by Jennifer McGuire that hasn't worked great.
So for this card i just scribbled some colors on watercolor cardstock, watered them down, dried with my heat gun and then stamped the sentiment. The arrows anf lowers are 3rd generation stamping (I stamped the images on scratch paper twice and then on the card without reinking). The sequins have been sitting unused in my stash for years... not anymore :)
And here's the second version. Here I played around with texture.
I started stamping the Hero Arts background and heat embossed in clear. The die cut circles piece has been sitting on my desk for a couple of weeks, so there it went. Finally, I covered a strip of cardstock with narrow washi tape (also brought by husband in his magic suitcase, hehe!), die cut the banner and stamped a partially inked sentiment also by Hero Arts.
Thanks for stopping by!
