Hello again, blog friends ~
I'm back with 2 cards I created for a few challenges. The first is for Happy Little Stampers January CAS Challenge:
For this challenge, we are being asked to use the 'Smooshing' technique. I just got a few jars of Inka Gold, and I have to say...I'm in heaven! The shimmer on these inks is amazing! I blended Aquamarine and Champagne with distress inks and water, and smooshed water color cardstock onto it for my background. It was pure luck that it looked like an ocean and sky, so that is what dictated my design. I die cut the mat and sailboat, and stamped the sentiment and seagull...and that was it!
My next card is for the Muse Card Challenge. Here is Michele Ferguson's fabulous card ~
And this is my take on her card:
I love how Michele placed the oval mat, and her repeat heart pattern really pops on her card. I don't have papers or stamps to create the heart pattern, so I chose MFT Dots & Stripes papers, and the PTI stamp and die set 'Uncorked'. I just added a few sequins, and that was it. For the die cut sentiment I used Silver Luxe cardstock, just to add a little shimmer to the card.
