Hi again! Back with some more homework for Clean and Simple Card Making II class. This is for day 9, textures. Once again, sorry for the pics, I took them with my iPhone and almost without light. Photoshop helped, but still...
Ok, so first I played with glitter.
This is probably the most technically crazy card I've ever made. The die cut is embeded in the pannel and I made the huge mistake of adhering my glittered pannel to another piece of cardstock before die cutting, so the die didn't cut all the way through and it was really, really hard to take out the die cut branches (the glitter ones) to embed the black ones. I ended up using scissors to help me, and x-acto knive and almost an hour later the die cut came out and I could reassemble the glitter pannel to embed the black die cut. I ended up exhausted! Ha!
Second, I tried Lisa Spangler's technique of adding texture with embossing, but I did it debossing a bloom die on my card. Looking at the end result, I'm not sure if I love the artsy look, of if the watercoloring (hello again, Inktense pencils!) makes it look like my 5 year old son made this card.
I also added some pearlized mist straight with my fingers on the blooms.
I'm entering this card in today's Papertrey Ink challenge. The sketch I followed is number 5.
Thanks for visiting!
