Happy Saturday! Remember I said that since I got my Waffle Flawer Crafts stamps I hadn't been able to put them down? Well, no improvements on that front, ha! Still lots of ideas on my sketch notepad. One of the things I wanted to try is a one layer card with masking.
So with Taheera's Cure for The Monday Blues challenge inspiration pic as my starting point, I set to work and came up with this:
I took the main colors from the pic: bright pinks, teal/turquoise, a gold strip and a white background. Look at the pretty table setting!
The card started with a white card base where I masked a square using post-it tape. First, I white heat embossed the sentiment from Bowtiful stamp set. Then, I used the stars cluster from that same set: stamped it repeatedly and heat embossed in hot pink. Once all the embossing was done, and without removing the masking I used one of my new mini blending tools to sponge Peacock Feathers Distress Ink, going for a bit of an ombre finish. I love how this simple masking technique gives a lot of depth without bulk!
Finally, I heat embossed the Bowtiful sentiment again in gold on neon pink cardstock, trimmed and adhered it with foam tape.
That's it from me today! Now, I'm off to find a crazy hat because we're invited to a Kentucky Derby party this afternoon. Mint Juleps, here we come... Have a fab saturday and thanks for visiting!
