Today's assignment was to make cards from the backgrounds that were created in Day 1 and Day 2.
The branch die is by i.o. The sentiment and banner die are from Simon Says Stamps. The Circle die is by Spellbinders. Berries are white pearls colored with a Copic marker. The pattern front is popped up with scotch foam tape.
The Silhouette Grass stamp from Hero Arts shows the technique the best. First I applied the lighter shade of distress ink. I clear embossed the stamp over the inked cardstock. Then I applied three different inks over the embossing to create the ombre effect. Nice fall background! The waves stamp didn't show up as well with this technique. The old music background will be fun to work with.
This may be one of the most remarkable backgrounds I've ever done! After trying varies patterned papers and background stamps with no success, I tried this. And I LOVE it! The background stamp is by Hero Arts. It is stamped with Versamark and clear embossed. The nondescript patterned paper has been in my stash forever. I applied Distress Mahogany ink to it with a blending sponge. Oh, my!! I am amazed!

Hopefully this new system will avoid that in the future.
My Distress Ink pads are right by my side in this wheeled cart my friend, Jan Woods, found on the internet. Each pad has blending foam attached to the bottom with velcro.
I'm ready for the Online Card Class Background Check to start on Monday!

This "Tank You" Shaker Card is cased from Kristina Werner. The sentiment is masked with letters die cut from freezer paper then ironed on watercolor paper. Distress ink is then smushed on the watercolor paper and left to dry. Freezer paper letters are then removed to reveal the sentiment.
Die cut letters and stamps are from Lawn Fawn. Copic markers were used to color the elements.
Sparkles in the shaker are chunky glitter, micro beads and sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.
