Hi ho, hope you have all enjoyed a nice weekend and are ready for a new week.
Warning: I have a longer than usual post today.
The challenge for Tag Tuesday is Asemic Writing. Now, I've had past experiences trying to do it and have concluded that, like Scribbling, I cannot do it. So, I Googled and found some public domain samples that I resized in PSE and printed out on SU light green card stock.
This is the sample I used for tag background. Cool, huh?
And then, I used the tag on a birthday card for one of my nephews.
I made the background by ink blending with a Sheena Douglass Pop Dotty stencil and Peeled Paint Distress ink on light green SU card stock.
I chose this Splitcoaststampers sketch for my A7 layout design.
I substituted the 3 dots with the balloons and I made the parallelogram panel a bit wider.
On left is another sample that I really liked, so I used it for the center parallelogram panel of the card front. Also, the stenciled background after running a blue colored pencil and a dark blue gel pen around the edge.
Two close ups to show the clear heat embossing on the Hero Arts balloons, Sizzix hand, Scrollswork man and Hero Arts sentiment. Everything was stamped with Blue Belle Versafine Clair ink before heat embossing with clear powder. The Avery Elle signature seal die cut in white that the hand is on was cut off on one edge per the sketch. The tag and the parallelogram panel were edged with a blue Promarker.
Inside the card I stamped Hero Arts sentiments.
And on back I printed out the sample I really liked for the back, again printed in color on the light green SU card stock (which I also like).
Thanks for reading to the end and also for the visit.
Enjoy your week.
CHALLENGE LINK UPS:
Balloons, Birthday, Blue
I prefer feminine because it's easier for me.
But the more masculine cards I make, the easier it's getting. It's always a challenge, though.
