Happy Tuesday, peeps! A quick CAS card today that didn't quite turn out how I had planned...I am finding that photopolymer stamps sometimes don't stamp as cleanly with craft ink when you want to do heat-embossing. So I will say that this card was a learning process! It's for two challenges:
The sketch at Can You Case It:
As well as the Just Add Ink challenge #311, which is masking! So here we go:
I began by masking off the upper and lower portions of my card with post-it notes, then heat-embossing the snowflakes from Snow Place in Craft White ink and white embossing powder. I stamped a Paper Pumpkin sentiment in Memento Black, then used the new In Color, Dapper Denim, to sponge within the masked area. I love my blues, and I think this will be a great color! I tried to darken the edges a little and leave the inside area lighter. As you can see, the snowflakes are not very crisp and clear:
Next time I will use a traditional rubber stamp. The inside was stamped with the same color, same Paper Pumpkin set, but I did add "wishing you" and another snowflake from a Lil'Inker set (can't remember the name!)...
And this shade sort of reminds me of these big blue eyes!
Thanks for popping by today!
