Clean and Simple Card Making 2 - Day 6



Day 6 of Clean & Simple Card Making 2 was another sketch day and the techniques covered were tone-on-tone and Patchwork stamping.  For my card I used Kristina's sketch and technique and created a tone-on-tone masculine birthday card.  In her sample she used an Impression-Obsession cling back red rubber stamp.  I was in a store on the weekend and looked as those stamps but once I saw the results in her video i headed back and picked one up.






Cardstock:  Blueberry Sky, Simply Chartreuse (Papertrey Ink)
Patterned Paper: Hello Summer (Echo Park)
Stamps: Heart-2-Heart #2, Up, Up & Away (Papertrey Ink) Chevrons (Impression-Obsession)
Ink:  Fresh Snow (Papertrey Ink) VersaMark (Tsukineko)
Dies: Up, Up & Away (Papertrey Ink)
other: foam tape, clear & white embossing powder
