CAS Colours and Sketches 251

Today's card was inspired by the sketch at CAS Colours and Sketches.

The centre panel is sponged gently in Tranquil Tide, Lemon-Lime Twist and Berry Burst then I've given it a very light bokeh effect layer with a circular mask and white pigment ink.

After inking the sentiment in Tuxedo Black, I re-stamped it with versamark, added powder and removed it from the spots I wanted to leave black. The final touch was to add in some gold glimmer stars die cut from the mini-treat bag framelit set. The centre panel is popped up on dimensionals.

  1. Beautiful card, thanks for playing along with us at CC&S.

  2. Awesome card and so many wonderful techniques. Loving the soft Bokeh background and how you partially embossed the sentiment, such a fun idea. Lovely use of the sketch and thanks for joining in on the fun at CC&S. Hugs Bev x

  3. Love your technique with the gold embossing powder, Jan! Such a clever idea to take some off. Great sentiment. It reminds me of the sequin designs where you rub them one way for one color and the opposite for a second color. (I have a gaggle of granddaughters who are crazy for them!!) Thanks for playing along with us at CC&S.
