Card 1 is a sample for a technique demonstration I will be doing for my local craft group next year; negative masking. I have used gloss card and my kaleidoscope ink pad, along with a love heart to get a rainbow heart image, and sponged across it with Distress Ink Black Soot and a love heart stencil, finished off with Stampin' Up! Bold Butterflies dies, rhinestones, and alphas. The card base is Stampin' Up! Elegant Eggplant cardstock.
Oh my lord, I had SOOOOOO much fun with this one! The background was done over a few days, as I started with gloss cardstock and Adirondack alcohol inks, then used the Adirondack blending solution and Tim Holtz stencils to add some more features. The dies are the same as for card 1, and I used the retired Stampin' Up! Feel Goods stamp set for the sentiment, matted on black cardstock, and Stampin' Up! Wisteria Wonder cardstock for the card base.
Thanks so much for stopping by, be sure to stop by next week with my mid-challenge reminder!
