CYCI 57 - Clean and Quick Challenge
February 15, 2015
Hello, and welcome back! Today I'm sharing a card for this week's Can You Case It Clean and Quick Challenge. I hope you'll indulge me for posting one more Valentine's card...on February 15th! I just couldn't help myself.
I think by the definition above, all of my cards might be clean and quick! I tend to not add too many layers, but sometimes I do add several embellishments. For this card, I played around with a simple watercolor background. Then, I used the super cute Snuggles And Smooches Photopolymer Stamp Set. Some gold stamped hearts, gold sequins and gold embossing add a little extra sparkle to the project.
*Tip: The Shimmer White Cardstock works well with watercolors. I pressed my ink pads in Real Red, Pink Pirouette and Crisp Cantaloupe onto the largest Stampin' Up Clear Block F, spritzed it with water, and then pressed a 4" x 5.25" piece of Shimmer White Cardstock onto the wet block. Then, I lifted up the paper and dried it with my Heat Tool. I love how it turned out, and will be trying this technique again soon.
Here's a close up where you can see more of the sparkle and shimmer.
Well, that is all for today. Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you'll join us over at the Can You Case It Blog!
