For today I am playing along with multiple challenges with one card. I am playing along with Freshly Made Sketches, Seize the Birthday, CAS on Sunday and Color Throwdown. Here is my design for today, enjoy.
|A simple ombre line balances the design of the card.|
Stenciled the flowers using acrylic paint to go over the ombre black panel
|The black diagonal panel was masked off and then sponged |
to create an ombre effect.
|Added just a bit of dimension by popping up the 'happy' sentiment.|
Today the sun is out and all is bright showing signs that Spring is in the air. Which is good because this card is loaded with color and yet, I believe, still has that CAS feel.. Acrylic paint was used for stenciling because I couldn't think of any other medium that would cover black. Nevertheless, I think it was a good choice for the black accent because it allows the color from the flower to pop!
Well that should do it for me.. I do hope you enjoyed your visit and want to thank all of you who have commented on my previous posts.. It lets me know I may be on the right track.. Now I must be off to clean my craft table. It looks like a bomb went off..
All the best,
