Neat & Tangled May Release - Day 2 - Giveaways
Welcome back for Day 2 of the Neat & Tangled release. I'm so so excited about today's post because you get to see my new Art Deco set.
I'm a little giddy about this one because this is one of those sets that makes cardmaking fast and easy, but with a huge impact. My first card demonstrates this to a T. I simply stamped/embossed in Princess Gold the background image, stamped a sentiment, and done. Think how quickly you can pump these cards out, but they look so chic and professional.
For my next card, I went a little more soft and subtle. The background was clear embossed on some watercolor paper and then I used one, just one, Distress Marker and a waterbrush to add the color.
To create that ombre look, I basically colored each section with the marker/waterbrush, but then went back in layers to create darker and darker sections. So the lightest has just one wash, the mid-tone two washes, and the darkest is three. It takes a bit of time, but it's not rocket since and the look is wonderful.
For the sentiment, I used the same marker, and my MISTI, and just colored the stamp with the marker and stamped it on the panel until I got enough coverage. I very carefully used the waterbrush to soften the color just a bit as well.
I hope you're as excited about this set as I am! Remember I'm giving away some products this week. To be entered, leave a comment here.
