CAS2- Day Two- One Layer Cards

Back again with my homework assignment from Online Card Classes' Clean and Simple Card Making Two. Today's lesson and homework assignment was One Layer Cards.  We were treated to several video's, these ladies are talented, smart, and so sure about what they do. I am in awe.

I looked through my limited stamp supply, and found a set to use.  Since my card involves masking, I wanted a big star shape.  I had none, so I ended up drawing one freehand with a ruler and pencil, then cutting it with a craft knife from the masking sheet. I think it turned out fairly well.  

The mask was placed on the Kraft, then ink was sponged on deliberately leaving the middle portions lighter to give an illusion of dimension.

I added versamark stamped star clusters (which I cut off the sentiment and rearranged); colored them with a similar Kraft-y shade of marker to make them stand out just a bit more.  

My final bit of embellishment is some black glittered stars.  They were stamped with versamark, then I filled them in with my quickie glue pen dumped some glitter on them and left them to sit while I made hubs dinner.  

A good thing, I probably would have tried to shake the glitter off too soon otherwise.

I'll give the card to hubs in the morning. He hunted down my craft order that a delivery service dropped off at the wrong address.

Thanks for stopping by.
