Hello crafters, Julie here, I hope I find you well today and you are enjoying the sunshine.
Today's card is another using the building up layers technique, as this was the theme from the August class. I decided it was about time I did more of a male card for this week.
I must apologise now as I was crafting with my mum at the weekend, (which I should do more often!) and I completely forgot to take photos of the stages.....whoops!
I started with a 16cm square of super smooth card and blended together Salty Ocean and
Twisted Citron Distress Inks. Then I used the That's Crafty Cogs (tc050) Dinky Stencil, masking it for the areas I wanted and applied white gesso through it with Cut & Dry foam. I heat set this to make sure my layers were dry.
Next I stamped my greeting, the Stampendous Celebrate Birthday stamp, with Versamark ink and heat set with WOW! Opaque Bright White embossing powder.
Then I stamped Crealies Bits & Pieces stamp CLBP03 in Twisted Citron Distress Ink and Salty Ocean to complete the main event of this card. I matted it onto some coordinating card from my stash and attached that to a 7x7 white card blank.
I hope you like this quicker make. Thank you for visiting the blog today, have a good week.
Love Julie x
