Hi everyone! How are you today?
This is my second post of the day. To see my latest card in my 14 Days of Valentine’s Cards series just scroll down. 🙂
Day 8 was a really inspiring one in the Clean & Simple Card Making 2 class – lots of eye candy!
Our homework was another one to take an old or a new technique and showcase it. I don’t like to CASE or ‘copy’ anything ever (it’s just part of my weirdness) so instead I took a little inspiration from Jennifer’s use of rainbow stamping and decided to make a card featuring a strip of rainbow colours:
What do you think? I know it’s not a stamping technique but it’s still a technique so hopefully I can get away with it! They never said it had to be a stamping technique! *wink*
I started with a panel of Stamper’s Select White cardstock and adhered a 1/2″ strip of Scor Tape to it.
I then coated the tape with different colours of Martha Stewart Fluorescent Glitter, one colour at a time, achieving a slight blend between each colour.
I then adhered a strip of 1/8″ Scor Tape and coated that with Fluorescent Black glitter. I then stamped the sentiment from Mama Elephant’s Smitten set using Versafine Onyx Black ink.
I adhered a strip of True Black cardstock to my card base – love that bold strip of black! I then adhered my panel to the base using Pinflair Glue Gel for a little dimension, and that was me done!
I do hope you like my little card, and that it passes for Day 8’s homework! I did take some of the principles, such as balancing bright colours with white and black, and a bold sentiment, so hopefully that still counts, lol!
I’ll see you back here tomorrow I hope, thanks for stopping by friends!
