The first uses both stencils and the water flecks on distress inks technique. I've actually never tried this before and I am THRILLED with the results. Absolutely THRILLED!!!
To create this card I began by using the two stencils to apply watermark ink and then I heat embossed with white embossing powder. I did the cityscape and then added the stars after embossing the first to avoid smuding things with the other stencil. I then applied three different Distress Inks to create the dusk sky. I used the wand of my spritz bottle to tap water over the ink and I love how that turned out! P.S. This is TOTALLY the card I am giving to the Hubbums for Valentine's Day. We don't really do Valentine's Day, but I love this card so much and it is perfect for him, so I'm doing it!!! HA!
I also did another card attempting the gradient look with a single ink and a stencil. I kind of got it, but I can't say I love this card quite as much, if I'm honest. It was fun to create, but it just doesn't have the oomph! that the first one has. Oomph. Hmmm... apparently that is a real word. Good to know. HA!
The vellum banner is popped up and that is kind of fun, but... just not loving it. It happens. What can I say? LOL! Anyway, I am really super enjoying the class and I can't wait to get caught up and create some cards based on the inspiration provided over the weekend!
Have a Happy!
