I took a fun card making class on Tuesday evening and wanted to share with you our creations! Damsel of Distressed holds some pretty amazing card classes and challenges your creative side.
The first card we embossed the image and then used Ken Oliver Color Burst. We sprinkled a small amount on the dampened image and then water colored with it. Then stamped the sentiment. The other technique we used with this card was to put a few drops of the powder on our mats and wet it with water. We then painted the stripes on the card. We then attached the striped piece and then raised the flower panel with foam to the card base.
The second card is a shaker card! I have always wanted to try this out. We took flower stamps and stamped it all over with embossing ink. We embossed it with gold and then took a marker and outlined the word in gold to make it stand out. Stamped the sentiment and then embossed it in gold and attached it to the card. We then put the acetate sheet on the back over the cut out word, glued foam around the edged of the word to seal the edges, poured in our sparkles and then glued on a back piece to seal it in. We then glued a nice patterned paper to the back and adhered to the card base. We attached the middle of the letters too on the acetate sheet to complete the word.
The third card was a bigger process. We randomly stamped a background stamp. Took some Dina Wakely Gesso and applied it with our finger to one side of the card in a circle pattern. I made mine a little smaller so it's hard to see but it's behind the gauze. We then applied a thicker gesso with a circle stencil over the right hand side and down the card. We then applied Distress Stain to make a wet dripping effect and applied water to distress some more. The gauze was then pulled apart to be messy and applied with glue. The twine was applied with glue also at the top using one big spot of glue and wrapping it around. The sentiment was embossed on heavy vellum and this was attached to the card. Attach flowers and embellishments to your desire. Attached patterned paper to card base and then attached decorated piece.
I hope you have a wonderful day!
