Practical Scrappers Challenge- Inks and Chalks
This week's challenge over at practical scrappers is to work with any type of chalk or ink. I actually did two cards this week that fit the bill but only submitted one. So I thought I would share my one of my projects early then share my design team submission with you on Thursday.
This card is a completely different style than I am used to. I had an idea in my head but wasn't sure how it would translate onto paper. The card ended up turning out better than I thought.
For this card I used Tattered Angels Glimmer mist in Periwinkle and Bubblegum. To create the masked image I cut out a design at 4" using the Lyrical Letters cartridge. Then I adhered it the design to white cardstock using temporary adhesive. When the design was stuck down I sprayed Glimmer mist in Periwinkle and Bubblegum. I blotted any excess off with a tissue. Then I removed the mask and a lovely design was revealed!
To finish of the card I cut out some butterflies with my Stampin Up beautiful Wings Embosslit. The butterflies were sprayed with Glimmer Mist as well. Finally I stamped a simple sentiment and Voila! A Simple yet elegant card was revealed. I was impressed with how clear the masked image was. I was expecting the lines to be more ragged but they stayed pretty true to the stencil.
This proved to be a great way to use some of my Glimmer Mist I just had to have, yet I never use! I will definitely end up using it more with this style of card.
I am a SAHM to three beautiful girls. I am obsessed with scrapbooking and cardmaking. I just recently have started to dabble in digital scrapbooking. My software of choice is Creative Memories Storybook Creator Plus 3.0. My other interests are camping, hiking, running, photography, and spending time with my family and friends.
