I'm on something of a roll with the cards this weekend - four in a weekend is something of a record for me.
I absolutely loved the technique used by Lizzie for this week's Make it Monday challenge. Firstly, it's easy and I love easy! Second, it has given me a way to use some of my Perfect Pearls powders which don't come out anywhere near as often as they should. And lastly, it's a great way to hide my rubbish blending skills!
I used the technique to mask a pearlized circle, then added a Doodlie Do bloom, coloured with Copics (which were still lying around after my previous card). Instead of stamping and clear embossing on to the pearlized part, I stamped the leaves in black. In hindsight I probably should have used Stayzon as the ink would be clearer on the shiny surface I think.
My Muse card yesterday gave me another idea for this week's CASology cue word - 'heart.' I stamped CAS-ual Fridays Mon Ami sentiment, but this time added a couple of hearts from PTI's Heart Prints.
I then shadowed them using black heart die cuts which made them pop against the card stock. Another easy one but I really like how it turned out.
That's it for now - I'm bracing myself for the arrival of a grumpy husband who woke up at 2am this morning to see Australia's World Cup Rugby dream destroyed by those pesky Kiwis! He will not be a happy man!
Thanks for popping by again,
