Hiya! Today I am sharing with you a card I made for the Lawnscapings current challenge:
There is still a couple of hours left to enter, so I decided to participate. I love their challenges! They are so much fun! Anyway, I am making another card for this challenge, but I don't know if I would have time to finish it, so I might be back posting in a couple of hours!!
Here is the card:
I masked off the bottom of a piece of white cardstock, and colored the top with distress inks and an ink applicator. When I was happy with the coloring, I took the Old Letter Writing stamp from Hero Arts, and sprayed it with pearlised water a couple of times. Then I stamped it over the distressed background. I white embossed the cake from Year One on white cardstock, that I colored using Mustard Seed distress ink. I hand cut the cake and glued it to the front of the card with dimensionals. For the ribbon, I took white ribbon and dies it with the distress inks I used for the background and water. Then I use a technique to glue down the ribbon, that I learned from Jennifer McGuire in her amazing Inspiration Showcase class.
I stamped the sentiment with Black Memento ink, and stamped the "happy" all over the front of a card base using the distress inks I used for the background.
Here is a close up of the pearlised water effect:
I am entering this card into the current Simon Says Stamp Challenge too, as it is: "Anything goes".
Now lets see if I have time to finish the other card and link it at the last minute!!
Hope you liked it! And thanks for stopping by!!
