Here’s the last of the three cards I made following Days 1 and 2 of the Online Card Class CAS 3 (yes, I’m soooooo way behind!) … it shows the faux letterpress technique, demonstrated by Shari …
I cut some strips of coloured card, adhered them to a sheet of copy paper to make a striped panel and cut a circle out of it. The retro stars are from Winnie & Walter, first stamped in Versamark and then overstamped, slightly to the side of the Versamark, with Brilliance White to create the shadow effect. On the base card, I sponged Tumbling Glass and Salty Ocean Distress Inks, cut an off-the-edge circle to match the striped one, and white embossed the W&W stars and Simon Says Stamp sentiment. A lining paper was adhered to the inside of the card, I slotted the ‘planet’ into place, making sure it was well stuck down, and trimmed off the excess. Finally, Wink of Stella was applied liberally to the stars … you can’t see it in the main picture, but here’s a close up where it’s just about visible … and I’ve just noticed, some of those stars do look as though they’re floating … cool effect, thanks Shari!
As well as linking this card up to the Online Card Class gallery, I’m also playing at Simon Says Stamp Work It Wednesday (use SSS Goodies), at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday‘s Glitter It week and at Winnie & Walter‘s March Join In To Win party.
I’ve done lots of lovely catching up, but there’s still plenty to do, so if I haven’t got to you yet, I will. Hope also to be back with some more OCC homework over the weekend … first I’m going to see Days 3 to 10 to see what it is I’ve to try out! Thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments are always a joy! Anita 🙂
