Me again. Now, I know there are an awful lot of my wonderful Followers who appreciate the clean and simple cards that I make, but I know that in blogland there is a train of thought that says clean and simple equals quick and easy. Well, yes, sometimes it can, but I'm back to show that it doesn't have to be and that a lot of work can go into a simple card.
Thank goodness for Eclipse Masking Tape is all I can say! I stamped this adorable Alfie Bear from Craftwork Cards onto a piece of Bristol Board and then restamped him onto the Eclipse. I cut the masks and applied. I then cut the cloud masks and using an X-Cut heart die I made a frame. Once I was content that all the masks were in the right place, I sponge inked the inside of the heart mask with Tumbled Glass and Shaded Lilac Distress Inks. Then, having removed all the masks, I painted the image, again in Distress Inks but using ReInkers. Once dried, I carefully lined up the Hero Arts sentiment, and made the matting layer by edging white cardstock with a Blue Pearl ProMarker. For once, I am thrilled with the end result! Even if it did take nearly two hours.
