Summer has just begun, although it's kinda cool out today... in fact it almost feels like Fall (my favorite time of year)! Am I pushing it a li’l?? LOL – ya, prolly so! I thought I'd get a jump on making some Fall cards ... and needing to do Christmas ones as well (didja see my li'l ticker up top?) Yikes! Summer's going to fly by and I won't know what hit me, so I'm really trying to get them done ahead of time this year.
For this card, I followed the TLC challenge on Splitcoast Stampers by watching Beate's video tutorial on Reverse Masking. Loved it! Ever since I got into digis I tend to do the easy thing and grab my designer papers. So it felt good last night to get down-n-dirty with the ink pads and sponges. BTW... other than the white card base and Marigold layer, (and embellies) the rest is ALL ONE LAYER!! I used the embossing with Nesties technqiue around my digi, and then did the reverse masking. Here's a close up, flat view of my card.
Pretty fun although it did take MUCH LONGER to make. But I like it. Feels warm and cozy, just like Fall *Ü*
I used the newly released digi set, "Harvest Bounty" from Doodle Pantry! Also... they have a VERY cute set, Peacock Birdie that will be yours free if you play in the challenge , which is just to use any image from their store! Only 2 days left though, so hurry!! There's 15 FREE digis here so you have something to play along with if you don't already have one. *Ü*
