Since my birthday is tomorrow, I treated myself to a class at Taylored Expressions this afternoon. It was all about using the Clarity Stencil Brushes. It was one of the best classes I've attended in quite some time. I tell you, I am so thrilled with the way you can blend with them that I recommend everyone getting their own set. There are so many ideas floating around in my head that I can't wait to get started on some new projects.
Since the colors fit the challenge so well, I've entered my card in this week's Color Throwdown Challenge. The two inks used on the card are Cookie Monster and Lemon Meringue. When they blended together, the green line was formed. The sentiment is a single stamp called Graphic Greetings Birthday and stamped using Oreo Cookie ink. The candles and flames were die-cuts that were attached to the layer, colored over and then removed to leave the white candles on the card.
The colors I used are from the Color Throwdown Challenge. For all the challenge details and to share your project, click the image below.
Thanks for stopping in at the Coffee Pot Stamping Cafe,
This card is fabulous, so eye-catching! So glad you treated yourself on your birthday :)...now maybe I will treat myself to some stencil brushes as an early present (since I can't wait all the way until December ;))!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Kelly! Don't wait until December. It's one of the best investments I've made lately. :-)Delete
Sweet card! Love the background...candles with the sentiment overstamped! So happy you joined us at CTD!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Vickie! It was a fun card to make.Delete
Your gradient coloring is so gorgeous! Love your take on the throwdown colors! Thanks for playing along with our challenge this week!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Wanda! Those Clarity Stencil Brushes make all the difference. I couldn't get the blending to come out so well with sponge daubers or the blending tool.Delete
