I am taking the FUN Online Card Class Summer Card Class 2 and we were given some FUN New color combos on Friday along with some really Neat card ideas!! I wanted to create a card that was Inspired by the on Jennifer McGuire made in her video only using one of the New Color Combos!!
I got a New Stamp Set Beautiful Roses from The Craft's Meow and I knew this would make the PERFECT stamp set for my card!! I stamped the image in Versa Fine Smokey Grey Ink and then cut it out after I colored it with my Aquarelle Water Color Pencils by Faber-Castell!! I then stamped the image again only onto Vellum this time and embossed it with Zing Charcoal Embossing Powder!! I cut out the rose and colored it front and back with my Faber-Castell Gelatos!! I layered a couple different colors and LOVE the way Gelatos looks on vellum!! =) I wanted a mat and decided to go with the New Spellbinder's Decorative Labels Eight Frame!! I then cut a white Labels Eight to attach it to and I LOVE the way it turned out!! For the Base of my card I created a Tri-Fold and thought it needed something more so I added the New Spellbinder's Basic Lattice Die to the front of the card base and I LOVE how it coordinates with the Stamped Label image and really grounds it!! I attached the label to end of the flap and it creates a FUN Card to open!! On the inside of the card I decided to play around with some of the Masking Ideas we have been taught in class ONLY instead of using ink I wondered if I could do the same thing only using Embossing powders!! I used a New Stamp Set Life's Messages from Penny Black and stamped it in Versa Mark and then masked each sentiment and added my different embossing powders!! I found that it was alittle harder to keep things separated once applied, but I still LOVE the finished result!! I will TOTALLY be trying this technique again!! =)
Here are some finished pictures of my card!!
I am also linking this up to the Birthday Card Challenge over on the Moxie Fab World Challenge!!
