Don't laugh at me, because I'm WAY BEHIND with my homework for the Online Card Class «Clean and Simple 4».
The lessons are already over and I really enjoyed them – there were a lot of fun techniques I would love to try.
For Day 1 I picked the technique that Jennifer McGuire was showing. She did some heat embossing with multiple powders and masking.
And this is what I came up with:
I really wanted to use a butterfly for this technique but it wasn't so easy to find a background stamp that worked well with it. At first I stamped the Hero Arts «Four Leaf Grid» background in VersaMark onto Bazzill «Taffy» cardstock. I then die-cut the «Paulina» butterfly by Simon Says Stamp from a sheet of Inkadinkado «Stamp Masking Paper» and adhered the negative carefully to the panel. I heat embossed the butterfly with «Calypso Coral» embossing powder from Stampin' Up!. The rest was done with clear embossing powder from Ranger.
Since I wasn't really happy with my embossed butterfly (the shape of the wings' tips aren't showing so well), I die-cut the smaller «Chrissy» butterfly (SSS) from vellum and adhered it on top. To embellish my card I added a matching MME enamel dot and this gorgeous «Danke» (which means «Thanks») chipboard from Create A Smile.
I don't know if I will have the time to create more cards for this class but I will surely use those techniques in the future.
Thank you so much for stopping by! See you tomorrow!
