I signed up for another online card class, the last one I took was Stretch Your Stamps, I liked the format and the information was valuable. When I saw Clean and Simple Card Making 2 being offered I signed up. The instructors are so talented, and willing to share tips and tricks. It is just fun watching them create. I have no clue about clean and simple cards, so this is a good opportunity for me to learn.
Homework for Day #1 was to pick one of 4 sketches and make a card. The lesson was entitled The Craftsmanship of Clean and Simple Cards. There was a wealth of information there for me. I thoroughly enjoyed the class. Day 1 was worth the price of admission for me.
I spent at least an hour on this card, which surprised me. Of course a lot of that was trying to get the misting to work. The class lesson for the card I chose to make used misting and a mask, I have no masks and only 1 mist here on the east coast. So I went for an emboss resist to try to mimic the look. I over misted several times, then finally just went with it. I like the mist pattern in the center diagonal of the card I think it highlights the sentiments.
Two weeks minus 1 day of homework projects coming up. Thanks for stopping by.
