OCC Stretch Your Stamps 2 - Homework, Days 1 & 2, Part 3 (and Last)
I'm back with another card for the current Online Card Classes Stretch Your Stamps 2 class, where days 1 & 2 were focused on Background and Reverse Background stamps. I made two cards earlier, here and here.
I just went into the craft room to start on Day 3's homework when I found my craft table covered with remnants of last night's effort to make a card based on Day 2. I was forced - FORCED, I tell you! - to finish it before I could start anew.
Here's the card, then I'll explain:
This one made me dig out my Perfect Pearls and Perfect Medium. I had to blow the dust off of them, but they still work! :) I tried the technique with Versamark, but the steps to set it went awry, so Perfect Medium it was.
I went against the sample and didn't die-cut anything into the card front, but instead put a vellum die-cut over the background. This may or may not have been a good idea, knowing how vellum adhesion and I do not get along.
I die-cut the jar lid from some SU Brushed Gold card stock, and also die-cut the sentiment out of the Versamark version of the background. It disappeared into the background, so I covered it with gold words and left the black sticking out for contrast. The dot on the 'i' is Liquid Pearls, because of course I lost the die-cut dot.
I guess I could give this to someone who is really old, huh? All those clocks and the gold ... maybe for a 50th birthday? Or not. We'll see. :)
Okay, NOW I'm going to work on Day 3's homework.
Thanks for stopping by!
Stuff I used: SU Brushed Gold card stock, misc black card stock, and the following:
