Today is the last day you can upload cards to the galleries for the Online Card Class: Stretch Your Stamps 2. I have a LOT more things I want to try, but this morning I took time to try two more. The first is a card based on a tag created by Laura Basson using a technique, "over the edge." The stamp itself is quite a bit bigger than what is stamped on the tag, but it works perfectly. I love just about everything Laura Basson creates and her tags (using watercolor for one, and Copics for the other) are no exception. I decided to go with the Copics this morning as it's been awhile since I colored an image.
I didn't have the same Copics Laura used so I ended up blending a bright orange with a bright pink---never tried two such different colors but it worked very well. The Sakura Gelly Roll white pen really made the flower centers pop.
I used a new Papertrey Stitched Rectangle die cut with New Leaf cardstock (PTI), and mounted it on a top-folded white card. The twine is from a large roll I bought at a gift shop earlier this spring. Both the floral stamp and the sentiment are from Clearly Besotted "Fresh Flowers." It's a gorgeous set. I'm linking this up to the Fusion Challenge: Floral Brights.
The second card uses a new (to me) Avery Elle set called "Rounded Diamonds." It took longer to find three ink pads I could layer than it did to create the rest of the card. This one follow the design of Nicol Magouirk's card in class. She die cut a window into hers, but I don't have the dies for this set so I stamped on a white card, and mounted it on a card made from Simon Says' Smoke cardstock. It's another gray/yellow combo.
The sentiment from Paper Smooches "Sentiment Sampler" fit right onto one of the rounded diamonds. Some Studio Calico and Pretty Pink Posh sequins were layered to finish off the card. This card is being linked to the Addicted to CAS challenge: Geometric.
And both cards will show up at Simon Says Monday challenge: Anything Goes.
