Oh wow, I am loving this class! Today is Day 2, just the beginning, and already I have learned so much and am making cards that I never would have otherwise. I love how it's allowed me to stretch myself and think outside my box. And the gallery is just full of amazing creations!
Today I used, of course, the required colour combo and this time I went with Sketch #3. I used Jennifer's technique for stamping multiple colours using one stamp. Originally, I tried it with masking, but masking a chevron, with all the angles, was a bit of a job! So I changed my mind. I went with some very old markers that I have for the blue, pink and orange and transferred the colour from the stamp to my paper. I didn't have a yellow marker in the pack, so I used a yellow ink pad for that one. BUT, I didn't do any masking. I just ran the pad along the top chevron line and stamped it. The previous three chevrons were already "imperfect" and I kind of liked the look, so slopping on the yellow ink gave me a similar effect. I did mask at both ends though to give me clean lines at the end of the chevrons.
Then I added a few solid hearts stamped in the magenta, and then doodled some black lines around the heart to "artsy" them up a bit! I wanted the look to compliment the artsy look that came out in the chevrons. Finished off by heat embossing white on black paper - same thing I did yesterday :) But I think the pop of black really sets a nice tone for the bright colours.
Enough blabbering...here's the card!
That's four cards done for my Mom now, just one to go!
Hope you like it!
