Bonus Day Homework

Hero Arts Flower Garden Fancy Die, Taylored Expressions, On Occasion stamp & die set, Distress Oxide Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, Salvaged Patina, Broken China, Seedless Preserve inks.

Saturday was a Bonus Day at the Spring CardCamp with Kelly Taylor instructing Ghosting and Faux Letterpress which will give your a 2-for-1 card technique. And guess what? It finally worked!! I struggled with the letterpress but following Kelly’s directions gave me a much better result. Ink blend a panel with water reactive inks. Die cut image from 80 lb cardstock and then again from watercolor cardstock. Glue the two die cut laters together and keeping the watercolor layer on the top, spray with water, place on the inked panel and run through as embossed panel in your machine. The tip was to dry the smooshed together cardstocks with your heat tool then carefully peel off and it really worked. I did have one little section that pulled off a little color from my blended sheet but covered that up with the star embellishments.

Fun challenge and a fun two weeks at CardCamp. I guess school is officially out for summer!!

Thanks for stopping in for a peek. I appreciate you and your time.

Take care and be safe.
