Sorry, couldn’t help myself. I did two cards, one was a fish card and the other a white space card. Tried some new things.
The fish card I was using 3 colors from a tri-color challenge on WeCraftCards.com. My colors were purple, blue, and orange. I was also using a stencil for pressure embossing, as well as a different stencil for heat embossing.
The fish card the only white in it was the cardstock I stamped on. You can see tiny bits of it, but everything else is blue, orange, or purple. I stamped the sentiment in purple, and the outer, detail layer of the fish is with a really dark purple.
The background stencil is a leaf esque one from Hero Arts. I thought it would work for water, as it reminds me a bit of different currents. The one I used at the bottom for rocks was a Ranger one. I pressed my Versa Mark pad through it, then shook on the glitter embossing powder. Thought it would look a bit more like rocks, but it wasn’t as “gray” as I thought. Oh well. I had fun with this one. My son suggested making the fish glossy, but as I wanted to use Glossy Accents for the “bubbles”, I chose to use some orange and purple Sakura Stardust pens to add a bit of glimmer. I’m entering this in the A Blog Named Hero challenge.
This next one is for the MFT Summer School Day 5 Challenge of using white space. I don’t tend to leave tons of white space, so had to think on this one for a bit. A friend of mine has sent me some amazing cards where there is a frame, with only the inside of the frame decorated, so I went with that idea.
This one is also for my Erika take on the Summer School challenges. I used 3 different MFT stencils in that tiny little scene. I also added bling, which is also something I don’t do too often. I just forget about it. So, I went for it on this, to stretch myself.
It isn’t the greatest picture, as the white on white really looks like the same color white in real life. Erika liked this one, so she’s getting the card. She liked that I embossed the frame.
If all goes well, I’ll get some more cards done this weekend. First, however, I need to try and catch up on my crochet-a-long. I’m more than a week behind at this point. Oops! Work has been crazy lately.
Thanks for spending some of your time with me today! Have a wonderful weekend.
