Clean and Simple Class Day #2


Hey everybody!

It is day #2 of CAS class and I am loving all the videos, techniques and tips from Julie, Jennifer and our own Debby Hughes. So happy to hear Debby's voice in her video. Of course her work is fab as always. I am very fond of Julie and Jennifer's work and videos. It was a treat last night with three videos. Thanks guys:)



I decided to combine Julie's and Debby's techniques into one card as I have catch up on other work at home today. I have combine reverse masking with embossing using dies into this card below.

I have used the negative of PTI tag & postive mask of the MFT speech bubbles & PTI Arrow and sponged HA's Raspberry Jam ink and also sponged SU's Rich Razzleberry on the edges. I then embossed the speech bubble and arrow. Stamped the speech bubble stamp inside the embossed edges. I didn't have the arrow stamp. So I freehanded the outline of the arrow using black pen. I then stamped the sentiments from MFT's Say What? stamp set. I had red sparkle gel pen. I went over the heart shape with it. The applied glossy accent on top. The green dots are from Pearl Pen. I then added the button from Teresa Collin's Now & Then collection and green twine from AnnaBelle Stamps.

Here are some closeup picture of the card to show the embossing and  glossy accent.




 Although it looks clean and simple, it too me atleast an hour to make it. I had to be careful of inks bleeding, inky finger on the card, giving time for glossy accent and pearls to dry... But towards the end it is so worth it.Hope you like it.

Thanks for visiting. Off to catch up of washing and cooking.

Ta!
