The next two cards are from Day 6, it was about making cards with 5 items (other than the cardstock). I kept pretty close to the 5. I really enjoyed the tutorial on coloring vellum.
This had colored vellum with an ink pad, rubbing alcohol, and perfect pearls. The die is from Simon Says Stamp -Heart Parade. Sentiment is from Simon's as well from the Valentine Spoons set. Sequins is from Ellen Hutson. The die is offset just a bit to create a shadow. This was time consuming, and I would pick a heavier lined die if I attempted it again.
Day 5, yes I have gone backwards here, because this one is my favorite of the bunch. I was not fond of it while I was making it. But man o man when it dried...yummy soft pink heaven. This was a new technique for me, using baby wipes to make an inkpad. I only had thick ones with patterns, but with the stamp I used it didn't matter. And I confess I was too lazy to go dig out my reinkers so I used ink sprays in purple, pink and orange. It worked fine.
My stamp is the big dotted heart from Chalkboard Love by Simon Says Stamp, and the Sentiment is also SSS- Valentine spoons. Dies used were from SSS - Love, Holiday Shapes, Quick Cutz-Celebrate. The dies were all brushed with clear wink of stella and then covered with glossy accents.
Now a midnight snack with hubs, maybe the Amazing Race Season 2 finale and then off to bed.
Thanks for hanging out and taking a look at my homework!
