Hashtag Selfie

Hi there.  I guess I’m still in masking mode because today’s card was created with masking. But definitely nowhere near the extent of the elephants card in my last post.  I think selfie cards are so fun and that is what I did for today’s card.

Selfie card created for challenges SSS Flickr Challenge #51, MarkerPop Challenge #101 Embossing and PP308 Color Challenge.

Using Black Intense ink, I stamped and masked the pandas and balloons on a 3″x3-3.75″ piece of white cardstock.  I colored in the balloons with Copics.

I wanted to make the selfie a glossy finish photo, so I covered the enitre panel with VersaMark and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.  Continuing with the glossy photo look, I die cut the photo frame from high gloss cardstock. The hashtag was heat embossed in black and the Smile sentiment was die cut from black cardstock and modified without the circle.

For the background, I dry embossed an A2 piece of Bristol paper in the vertical direction using  Seaside embossing folder.  I thought these waves vertically looked like balloon strings.  For better contrast against the white frame, I spritz it with a custom spray I created from 70% rubbing alcohol and Daffodil Delight refill.  To finish, I added glossy accents to the Smile die-cut greeting and mounted it on a white card base.
