May Happiness Be Your Destination


Hello again!  Wow, it’s Monday and I’ve got 2 posts!  LOL  I’m back with my CAS Online Card Class homework for Day 6.  Today we were given more CAS sketches with a couple of fun techniques.  I chose to do Kristina’s sketch and background tone on tone effect.   I stamped my Newpaper Eiffel Tower background onto PTI’s soft stone with Versamark ink and then heat embossed it with white embossing powder.  I added a hit of colour with patterned paper and completed my focal point with the sentiment stamped on balsa wood.  I turned the balsa banner into a tag by adding a jumbo eyelet and some bakers twine.  Thanks for visiting again! 



what’s in it?

stamps: hero arts newpaper eiffel tower, essential messages

ink: versafine onyx, versamark

paper: pti rustic white, soft stone, doodlebug design lovebirds

What a beautiful card. And, I just got that background stamp, and it did not even occur to me to use it for this. I'm definitely going to be 'trying this at home'. The tone on tone is so sophisticated.

What a pretty background. I love how you added the punch of colorful paper behind the wood tag--it contrasts beautifully with the white embossing.
