Hi everyone. It’s Saturday, which means a new challenge at Less is More (LIM). Challenge #328 this week, is one layer cards (OLC) with spots and stripes. Once again, our sponsor this month is Uniko. Our guest designer is March winner, Sue Blamey.
First, thick Whisper White cardstock was cut and scored to create a top folding card base. Intense Black ink was used to stamp the graduation cap, halftone explosion and the wow. The cordinating die was used to die cut the cap mask, while the wow mask was created in the usual way of stamping and fussy cutting. So the cap was stamped first then masked. Next the wow was stamped then masked before the halftone explosion was stamped last. The cap was coloured with coloured pencils and the stripes were drawn in using a t-ruler and Smoky Slate marker. The sentiment was stamped with Persian Blue ink. For dimension, Glossy Accents was added to the wow. A few black sequins finished off the card.
I am entering this card in Casology challenge 248 Commencement.
2. MONSTER SURPRISE
For my next card, white no-bleed through Copic-friendly cardstock (since it’s a OLC) was cut and scored to once again create a top-folding card base. The stripes, image and sentiment were stamped with black Memento ink. The image and the bottom area were then masked and Wilted Violet distress ink was sponged for the background. The image was then coloured with Copics in rainbow colours. To finish, clear shimmer was added to the bow and googlie eyes to the monster.
I am entering this birthday card in the following challenges:
