Kaleidoscope; H&H Day2

Day 2 of His and Hers was so full of GREAT cards.  I am once again up late working on my homework. I am happy to say I finished it a couple of minutes before midnight. 
The colored vellum technique looked so cool, but after a few tries it was such a no go for me.  

So I decided to go with Jennifer's Kaleidoscope style card. I personalized it a bit. My first challenge was finding a leaf stamp that was solid.  None of my stash has a solid leaf.  Then I found a clear stamp set (Hero Arts CL374) and used the back side for a solid surface.  

I really like the masculine card that Jennifer showed us which was white stamped on Kraft with greens and browns, and decided to use that design for both the cards. I changed only the ink colors, sentiment styles, and I added some twine.

My "Hers" card used  Memento Brilliance in Pearlescent Yellow for the base of the pattern on white card. On top of that I stamped  Hero Arts inks in Neon Pink, Red Royal, Pale Tomato, and Bubblegum. The sentiment is from Hero Arts as well set CL611, white embossed on vellum.  I added some yellow and white twine and tied an offset bow.  This was all placed on a yellow dot embossed card base.  Card size is 4.25 by 4.25

My "His" card used Colorbox Frost White for the base pattern on Kraft. I then stamped the leaf again in shades of blue ink all from Hero Arts: Soft Pool, Cornflower, Stonewash, and Navy.  The sentiment is from the same Hero Arts set CL611 also heat embossed white on vellum.  I couldn't resist the twine and added brown and white tied in a knot along the sentiment strip. This was mounted on a very vanilla card base. Card size is 4.25 by 4.25.

I am so loving this class!

Thanks for stopping by.
