Clean and Simple Cardmaking, day 6

This week I’ll try to keep up with the class. Todays assignment was to use one of three great sketches to make a card. I didn’t really know what to do at first, but I started out by stamping a background with letters. I used Distress Markers to color the background in different colors and added some water for a watercolor effect.


At first I was happy with just the background and the black banner but it felt like something was still missing. I filled a vellum bag with some sequins and wood stars and added behind the banner and felt like the card was done. I like the black banner a lot! Can’t wait for tomorrows class! I’m having fun :)

If it's crafty I have probably tried it. Or plan to try it tomorrow. I love to be creative in all ways, but I tend to gravitate to making cards, coloring and diecutting. I also have a bad yarn shopping.... ehm... KNITTING... habit. I live in Sweden with my husband, two cute minions (also known as kids) and three dogs. I work from home at a small international development company during the days, and craft while listening to audio books or follow my favourite series at nights and on weekends. I love it when I don't have to leave the house, being an introvert and socially awkward and all. That's why my slippers to shoe ratio is close to 1:1 and I'm not ashamed to admit it ;)
