The card I have to share was inspired by four challenges.
- first and foremost, the Spring Color 4 Kids over at Send a Smile 4 Kids,
- Saturday Sketch, which is a brand new challenge for me,
- Darnell's NBUS Challenge #6, using a Paper Smooches and sentiment for the very first time, and
- the PS April Guest Designer Search.
Today's Card: free hugs
Now, for my card! I experimented with a little layering of vellum a week or so ago and wanted to revisit this technique. This time, I used masking to overlap vellum layers and create various colors.
There was quite a bit of masking involved in creating these yellow, green, blue, and pinkish purple colors.
|Top Layer (aka Tag) is masked to ink up pup in picked raspberry.|
|Sticky notes are used to create template for cutting tag corners.|
|Tag location is masked on bottom layer to apply mustard seed to negative space.|
|Middle layer is inked in peacock feathers.|
|Middle and bottom layers are layered, placing glue dots under black circles in all four corners.|
Since this is my first time masking with vellum, I'm linking this little pup up to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog's Take a Leap Into the Unknown Challenge. And, since the vellum, twine, and banner add quite a bit of texture, I'm linking up to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog's Get Touchy Challenge. Finally, since the card has an uplifting sentiment, I'm linking up to the current Anything Goes Challenge over at Word Art Wednesday.
Looking forward to a little sunshine tomorrow. And, looking forward to new CIE and W2CB challenges this week.
Have a great rest of the weekend. Thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
