Today’s tutorial was about colour blocking. As usual, I would have been done a long time ago if I hadn’t decided to do a “reverse” kind of colour blocking. I stamped three shades of cardstock with a silhouette image background stamp. This was not a problem other than it took about 4 repeats of inking and stamping to have good dark ink coverage on all the cardstock. Then blah, blah, blah and then I had to cut my own shadow for the Thinking of You on my Scan n Cut and then blah, blah, blah and then it needed matching mats and then blah, blah, blah. Finally, it needed a liberal dousing of Shimmer Spritz and a dash of Stickles to finish. My friend Dianne is right………………it takes me hours to make a card.
This card will never make my favourites list, but it turned out well. It looks better in real life than in a picture as the glitter spray never photographs too well. It is a 5 X 6.5 inch card which I rarely make, but I needed the extra room for the blocks. I have lots of the stamped cardstock left to make more cards in this style as Laurie Willison did but no time to do so. I must don a mask and risk my life to get some groceries.
