A Minute Before Midnight

This is a last minute entry for the CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge #171.

Last minute means only pictures for now, because it is past my bedtime!  I will add witticisms and directions for how to make this card tomorrow when I am more awake!


 

Tomorrow has arrived! Hooray!

This card is for a “Clean and Simple” challenge, and making a card simpler and cleaner is often a challenge all on it’s own, whether or not you are trying to stick to a certain sketch idea or a particular color scheme. I stuck with a single color for this card: Lost Lagoon from Stampin’ Up!

I tried a new splatter technique I hadn’t used before. To use this technique, you take a Stampin’ Write marker and use the inside of the cap to flick the tip at the paper. This results in several small, dark spatters as opposed to the larger lighter spatters one might achieve by using a paint brush, water, and ink to spatter the paper. I was a little worried that this might damage the marker tip, but it survived completely unscathed. This is definitely a technique I will have to remember for the future when I need a little background texture.

You can really see how dimensionals add layers to this card in the above image.

I didn’t really intend for this card to be a sad card, but I think it could work very well as a sympathy card.

Thanks for visiting!
