PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT:
THE ONE-LAYER WEDNESDAY CHALLENGE WILL BE POSTED SHORTLY. SORRY FOR THE DELAY.
And now back to our regularly scheduled program.
I spent almost two hours last night making three cards with StampinUp's Tree Trimmings, one of which is unfit for public consumption. The problem is, I've already made perfect-for-me cards with this pretty set in years past, and I wanted to do something completely different...which is never, ever a good idea when you're tired.
Yesterday's cards showed how color alone can create different looks. Today, I use a technique and punches on one card to get a distinctly different feel.
The first card uses emboss resist and Twinkling H20s...a golden jade color. I couldn't find my watercolor paper in my "staged" craft room, and used PTI white card stock instead.
Here's a close-up that gives an idea of the sparkly shimmer of the Twinkling H20s.
The second card is more "me," with no technique at all and a tiny little bit of bling and plenty of white space.
Two cards, two very different looks. If you're playing along with me on my challenge to make variations on sets to meet my quota of Christmas cards, keep in mind you can use those techniques whose supplies have been languishing in your stash. What a fun way to mix things up and keep them interesting!
