Hello and happy Sunday. I am popping in quickly to share three cards I have made over the past few days. First up is a card for my Clean and Simple homework, using a variation of the technique from Day 6 and the colors from Colour Me #12. I used Distress inks in the closest colors I had. I masked random sections off with 1/3 inch post it tape, and then sponged distress inks into the sections. It was a good example to me of how well those Distress inks blend, because I masked adjacent sections with post its, and ended up inadvertently blending in colors from previous sections.
Now I will show you my first attempt at this technique. I was inspired to use this week's Color Throw Down colors when I saw Jacquie use them. I forgot that I had post it tape, and used score tape to mark off my sections. All fine, until I realized I would need to stick something onto that score tape. The only thing I could think of was glitter--I think this card is a bit much, and prefer my first attempt.
I have not played at Muse in a long time, but I've been thinking about this fabulous card all week, and finally came up with an idea. I have an eyeglass die from The Cat's Pajamas that I have never used. I decided to play off the rows of colored die cuts on this card, using my eye glasses die.
I think this would make a cute birthday card for anyone who wears glasses. The top strip is coated with Wink of Stella.
I will be entering the first and third card in this week's Simon Says Wednesday Glitter It challenge.
Thanks for Visiting
