Anyway, Day 1 of class included a video from Joy Taylor, using die cut words and ombre cardstock panels. I went with the ombre, but with Distress inks (Festive Berries and Worn Lipstick) and using the die cut word (from Papertrey Ink) as a mask - negative mask on the front, positive mask on the inside. The "& bright" is from the matching PTI stamp set : Wonderful words - Holiday, stamped in Versafine Onyx Black.
There are snowflakes (from Lawn Fawn "Ornate Ornaments" on the left of the card - in very pale blue (Hero Arts soft pool stamped off once), white embossed and glitter. I used heat and stick powder, then loose glitter for the glittery ones - I now have glitter all over the floor! Whoops!
I'll be submitting this card to Lawnscaping Challenges "Sentiment" challenge, and CASual Fridays Embossing Challenge.
I hope to be able to join in with class a bit more in coming days, but I'd better get some more marking done right now! I aim to get a minimum of 100 more papers done today - wish me luck!!
Thanks for visiting :)
