Spring Card Camp Day 6

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.

    I was interested to read that you used your Scan ‘N Cut to do the background for the sentiment. That never occurred to me but is a great idea. I like the shadow die effect but only own two or three of them. Very creative!
