Hello to you. Happy Valentines Day.
How are you today? Are you being spoilt? I hope so.
Well, after the calamities of yesterday morning, the afternoon actually turned out ........
...... along much the same lines.
Ha Ha. Must have been one of those
OH! I mean Opportunity Days as Chris D so rightly pointed out in her comment on yesterday's card. Thank you!
Well, I had to persevere a couple of times to cope with a big drip (no, I am not being rude to someone!) and stamping outside the mask. But it was worth it, I think.
My goal was to create a feeling of dimension in a one layer card.
Do you think I achieved that?
I'm entering this card into:
Less Is More week 263 - One Layer Card and include a stem.
Time Out Challenge #49 - "Love Is The Flower You've Got To Let It Grow' - John Lennon lyric
Addicted to CAS - Codeword 'Bloom'
One Layer Simplicity # 24 - Friends
So firstly, let's take a look at my 'OPPORTUNITIES'
Went well but I got a huge drip or dribble right the way down to the bottom from the flower.
I tried to wipe it off, but that was no good.
Then onto CARD TWO
Thought I'd try a bigger version of the card.
Ha! Decided it'd be good to stamp outside the mask - NOT!
Errrrmmmm. What to do? Scrap it now or carry on?
Tried to cover it up with text in the bottom corner.
Didn't bother with the glossy accents on this one because it didn't seem CAS enough to me.
(Actually, now I've posted it on here, I think I like that one better!!!)
How I made the final card:
The backdrop is Antique Linen distress ink sponged through a triangular stencil, and then over-stamped with a text stamp in Adirondack Latte (having first masked off the poppy).
The poppy was coloured in and drop shadows added to both the poppy and one side of the triangle.
Finally, the poppy was smothered in glossy accents and left to dry overnight.
(only because I ran out of time yesterday afternoon!) ;-)
