This week’s Challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers is Clean and Simple.
I don’t do a lot of CAS because I love to play with inks, but I do really enjoy simple card designs now and again. I’ll be making a DT card for the ‘Spotlight’ part of this challenge, but couldn’t resist making a couple of very clean and simple cards for fun.
Here’s my DT sample for this week’s Crafty Cardmakers’ Challenge Spotlight, which this week is the Spotlight Technique.
Add three toning brads in bottom right hand corner, then mount first onto toning pink card, then onto a folded brown card. Easy peasy.
- 1. Use stickers or punches
- 2. Use the colour orange or yellow
- 3. Include and animal or fish
Over at Crafty Cardmakers, the challenge for this week fortnight is a photo challenge and here it is.
The text (US Artquest) was stamped on glossy card with Versamark ink to get a resist effect, then heat set, followed by sponging Adirondack Meadow and Pool inks all over, then stamping the text randomly over the top with each colour. The flourish and flowers are part of the stamp, so the little girl was stamped in Permanent ink, then again on white matte card, cut out, coloured with Promarkers and the two inks, then glued over the top of the stamped image. The flowers were coloured with Gel pens and embossed, the wings glitter glazed. The words (Paper Inspirations) were stamped on white card, cut out, layered onto black card, then attached randomly, with heart brads and gems to complete the theme.
