Today, I had to go for a root canal, I'd had it done once, but it didn't work, so I had to have it redone. I will be glad when it's all over and done with, it started two years ago . . . yes, that's right . . . two loooong years!
Anyway, that is not what todays post is all about.
As I knew that I would be at the hospital for quite some time, I decided to make a couple of quick, one layer cards.
One of them, I think, qualifies for the Happy Little Stampers CAS #1 Challenge
First I did a watercolour acylic block stamping technique as a background piece and let that dry, then I stamped my image and greeting in Versafine Black Onyx and ran it through the Cuttlebug, with my trusty Papertrey Ink EP. I finished it off with a couple of black dots. I hope that this still qualifies as CAS.
The second card was just a quick stamping, I had just opened a brand new (to me) Altenew stamp set, and I loved the look of it, so I just had to use it to try it out.
First, I stamped the outline image, this is a two-step stamp set, and at first, I didn't even try to line up the solid images with the outlines, going for a more 'loose look' to it, but then thought it just looked a bit 'naff', so lined the other solid images up properly.
It looked a bit 'naked' so I added some ink splashes and a couple of red gems, to give it a more 'finished' look. I'm not entering this one in the above challenge as I didn't do any watercolouring.
And here they are together
As always, thanks for stopping by and I appreciate all comments, and reciprocate, where possible.
Have a lovely day/evening. Hazel x
