Clean and Simple Card Class

Well, it's day 8 of the two week class and this is my first card. I've wanted to join in but things just keep getting in the way. I've been looking, and thinking and trying to find time and finally I've had a go!

This card is the technique from day 5.  Never tried it before and I really DO like it!  Not centred perfectly etc. but I  LOVE the pearly sheen. I tried one stamp across the panel  and I'm happy enough with how it turned out. I'll make sure I centre the image with a ruler next time.
The embossing powder is Amethyst and the Distress inks are worn lipstick,scattered straw and milled lavender! I mounted the panel onto Kraft card. The sentiment is from darkroom door and the image is from Lucy's Stamps ( it's old- I bought it second hand).

Thanks for looking.


  1. You've done a great card with this technique the shimmer and the colours make it look like a sunset shot its beautiful.
    Thanks for your comments on mine - the patchwork was actually quite easy - I just cut one of the ink pads into 4 so it was smaller so you hardly need to apply any pressure to get good ink coverage. Give it a go it was fun ;-)

  2. I love that it's not perfectly even. I think it makes a more interesting card.

  3. It's gorgeous! Such a lovely effect and fab colours :o) Lisa x
