Clean & Simple Card Making 3 - Day 9


IMG_4063






I never thought that I would ever get so messy making a card or that it would be this much fun. My card is based on a card Debby Hughes created while she demonstrated creating textural effects.  It isn't perfect but I think I might do it again if I ever get all the sticky bits off my cutting mat! So many techniques--embossing, Copics, masking, paint splatter, Wink of Stella, embossing paste and stenciling.  Then of course i had to add a few sequins for balance. Definitely the most I have ever done to one card.  I have held off with the embossing paste trend, but I actually really like the texture and look of it.
