I’m back with days 3 and 4 of my Card Captain week for the Michael Strong Stamps group.
Card of the Day – Day 3:
Here is one I made in 2017 for a challenge on Splitcoaststampers. Just a bit of fun and color.
Today my partner and I enjoyed a lovely Christmas lunch with my CWA Branch, a jolly time had by all. Even the weather was more bearable cooler than we’ve had in recent weeks. It will hot up again soon enough. Anyway, hope it gives you some cheer.
Card of the Day – Day 4:
Thank you to all who sent me comments, I’m glad you’re enjoying the cards.
Today’s card was made in January 2015. It has a contradictory theme, with Easter eggs but the Sentiment says different.
Dots are made with the mini round distressing sponges and inks: ink sponge then just ‘stamp’ onto your paper, I also get the rest of the ink from the sponge after distressing around the edges, to make sure the sponge doesn’t have any ink left in it. How dark the “stamp” is, depends on the pressure you put on it as well as how much ink is in the sponge.
Then just add whatever you want to the card. I have also done this with stamps before cleaning them to make sure all the ink is off. You can use as background.
Enjoy! Until tomorrow.
That’s it for now. I’ll be back with days 5 and 6 tomorrow. Cheers for now.
PS. Sorry about the inconsistency of the spacing – unfortunately I cannot find how to rectify the line spacing to be the same on both posts. Perhaps someone out there can advise? Thanks.
