We’re having a Take Ten (make a card in ten minutes) challenge on KCUK and these were my two entries, both very simple and both made with the same stamp.
The first one is in one of my favourite colour combinations which just happen to be in a Brilliance tricolour inkpad, so we get that lovely pearlescent sheen, too.
This one is used in reverse – stamped in Versamark, then clear embossed and sponged afterwards, giving a much more subtle effect. I also used a very different colour scheme (rust and sky blue) and added a few blue ‘jewels’ to the flowers, for interest.
This one’s for one of my oldest friends, who is very special to me. We were working out how long we’ve known each other last week and it’s 40 years! Wow, that makes me feel so old!!!
The scanned colours aren’t perfectly true – there are lilacs, peaches and oranges in there, along with the yellows. It’s much nicer ‘in the flesh’, though I say it myself ;-) I was aiming for the faux airbrush effect you get from using a texture sponge.
The theme at Crafty Cardmakers this week is Blooming Images, so I’ll enter the top two into that and will have more to enter in the next day or so.
Have a great week!
