I wanted to play in this week's challenge at CASology, but I'm barely squeaking in before the deadline! The cue card for this week is "pond". I've made a couple of different cards for the challenge.
This first card was stamped with a Sweet and Sassy image and colored with Copics. It's difficult to see on here, but I stamped the swan a second time and cut it out, then popped it over the water that I'd previously cut with an oval Spellbinder die. Then I used another Spellbinder die for the blue label backing the oval. The sentiment is from PTI. I curved it on my acrylic block and stamped it under the oval shape of the blue . I also added a mat of white with a tiny blue border that had been embossed with a texture plate from PTI. Sounds like a lot, but it's still pretty simple.
I really love how this second card turned out. I embossed two circles on a one layer card, then masked off all but the center circle. I applied several different colored DI for the sunset, and a couple for the water. The boat is an image from GinaK Stamps. I use a touch of glitter on the waves for sparkle. The sentiment was curved on an acrylic block to "fit" beneath the circle frame.
This card also fits with the OLW100 challenge to make a one layer card with any type of transportation.
Thanks so much for stopping in. If you leave a comment, please know that it's greatly appreciated! Until next time....
