Casology Week 247: Flow
Hey there, Stefanie here...back for some more challenge cards. I was lucky enough to craft all day and I have a ton of cards to share. I think I will just do a few more today, then update the blog more tomorrow.
I am trying to grow as a card designer and my favorite challenge that pulls me OUT of my comfort zone is the CASology challenge. Here is my entry for the CASology Week 247 Challenge - keyword is Flow.
This may be one of the favorite cards I have made this weekend. Here are the details:
I started using the ink cubes I got with my Hero Arts May kit, Deep Blue and Aqua. I blended them onto a piece of 110 lb white paper.
I seriously love this ink. I am really excited to actually stamp with it, but today I just blended it. I saw a video from Jennifer McGuire a few days ago in which she said that Hero Arts inks have a special quality. You can put Versamark on them and heat dry and it will produce a special effect. Challenge on!
So, I put the awesome wave stencil that came in my May Hero Arts kit on top of my blended paper and took a cosmetic sponge and smooshed VersaMark into the panel. I got a little blue ink on my VersaMark pad, but all in all, not too bad. Then I heat set the embossing ink and look! Magic! This totally says "Flow" to me!
I cut a circle out of the panel using my stitched circle die. Also, I stamped a sentiment from Hero Arts, "an ocean of thanks". I glued the circle onto the top folding card. I hardly ever make a one-layer card, I'm so proud of myself!
Here is the finished product again, I really like this Thank you card, I feel like it is more masculine than some of my cards.
Thanks for reading!
