CAS 3 Day 11: Combining techniques
So, this card doesn't highlight the techniques from day eleven exactly (I did use masking) - but, it does combine some techniques in a fun way. I just can't get enough of plaid stamping (as is evidenced by my recent posts) and am having so much fun with it. So, Combined that with inlaid die-cutting and then added a twist.
First I created my plaid panel using the technique that Laura B showed early in class. I decided to make it a solid plaid with no white space. I then die cut the "Hello" from it. I really loved the way the plaid hello looked and set it aside. I cut a second senitment from white cardstock to inlay in the plaid panel. It looked nice - crisp white juxtaposed with the bold plaid. Then I had a thought - what if I off-set the plaid Hello to create a shadow effect and did plaid on plaid. Icut a few more sentiments from white cardstock to layer and give some dimension and then adhered the palid die cut onto them - I just off set it a little. I am thrilled with the way it turned out. It was hard to photograph, but it looks really cool in real life.
I must say that I just love these online card classes. I love the inspiration, the learning, and the exposure to other blogs and stampers.
