On to some cards I made the last couple days. In all honesty, when I saw the PTI MIM theme, Mask & Stack, I said to myself, "Oh no!" I almost never mask images. However, after watching Betsy's video, I decided to give it a try with a PTI butterfly. But then I remembered the Heart-2-Heart stamp & die with cute little balloons.
Took three tries as I messed up my first two panels trying to add some shimmer. I don't seem to be able to photograph blues very well. The colors are actually grayer than they look here: Enchanted Evening, Blueberry Sky & Spring Rain. The sentiment is from the same set. I added a single PPP Sparkling Clear sequin--something I learned from my friend, Stella. I'm also entering SSS Wednesday & The House that Stamps Built.
Edited to add: Also entering Uniko 6th BD Linky Party.
PTI has added a new challenge: Transformation Tuesday. I had no problem finding a card I wanted to re-do as I was never really happy with this one--my November Blog Hop card.
|My Card for the Nov '17 Blog Hop|
I die cut the panel from Ripe Avocado cardstock & added the die cut holes from another die in the set. I stamped the same sentiment from Lovely Layers using the Prairie Grass ink. The top leaves were attached with foam this time, for a bit more dimension. The card is Vintage Cream & again sequins were used for embellishment, but just 3 small gold ones. Now I have a card I can actually mail--yah! I'm also entering SSS Work it Wednesday, SSS Wednesday & WAW. Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
