Clean and Simple Card Making 3 - Day 3

IMG_4034




Back with another card for Clean and Simple Card Making 3. Today's lesson was Optical Illutions. The card I made was based on Laura Bassen's lesson on layered stamping.  I stuck pretty close to her sample because that is how I learn, I do it once just as it is taught and then like an elephant I will never forget--well at least I hope I won't.  I was happy with the results, but really I wish I had worked with solid images. Next time, because I will remember?

I love your card, Tracey! This technique is one of my favorites. I tried it out yesterday and I am not in love with my card. Going to have another go at it today. :)

So very pretty Tracey. The Sketched Shapes look great. I almost used that for my card but found some solid circles in Buttons and Bits or something like that.

This is absolutely fabulous. I have not yet gotten to this video--ran out of time, but hopefully soon. I don't know why you would use different stamps next time. Those sketch circles look fantastic.

Very cool card! Love the concept, and will have to try this. I like the sketchy circles, btw. It's a light, airy feeling. And the optical illusion works well, my brain can't translate them well as a rule, but I can see it here! Way to go!! Bev
