Clean & Simple 2 - Day 6 (card 2)

Hello Friends,

I'm back this morning with a second card from day 6 of the Clean & Simple 2 class.

Debby Hughes made a stunning card using a masking technique, she also had a great curved stamp (or she curved it on her block) as a greeting.  This is my take on her card........

I decided to plan this card on my Silhouette Cameo.  I wrapped the greeting round a couple of ovals and used a pen instead of the blade to draw the greeting and cut then cut the edge.  Afterwards I cut a frame out of acetate to use as my mask, which I sponged through gently.  The ink did smudge a little, even though I heat set it first - whoops!  After I inked the background I stamped the image and coloured it with my colouring pencils.  I popped the whole mat up on dimensional adhesive to give it some depth.

Here is a picture of my Silhouette Cameo screen, which shows the two basic pieces to make the card ......

I will try and be back later with a card from the lessons today, if I have time.

Hope you find some time to craft today too!

  1. My sentiment was already curved Carole which made life easy LOL. You did an amazing job with the silhouette and I love all the soft colours you used :)
