Today's class was another fun day full of techniques. I used a stamp from the Paper Smooches Potpourri set to make a geometric design, using Tsukineko Brilliance ink pads. I made the feminine version using the pink, purple, and blue inks and stamped the background with a Hero Arts stamp:
I added Liquid Pearls to the center of the images and around the sentiment.
My masculine version used the same Brilliance inks, but this time in metallic silver, bronze, and gold:
Adding the metal brads and brown background stamp keeps it more "guy" looking to me.
I also managed to make a card for this week's FCCB Challenge - Paper Roses. We can make anything with paper flowers. I pulled out my Pagoda Cricut cartridge and made the Cherry Blossoms, cut at 2 inches:
I cut a window in the card front using my Spellbinders dies and then added vellum and a border. The cherry blossoms needed a bit of Liquid Pearls too. I was inspired by last week's CBS Sunday show on the cherry blossoms in Washington DC - some year I'll actually go when they're in bloom.
Have a lovely day and thanks for looking!
