two-fer (LIM, SSS)

Typical me, I saw the Brown/Pink challenge over at Less is More.  Thought, "oh cool".  Missed the deadline.  Saw the new challenge One Layer Card.  Thought, "Brown/Pink One Layer Card."

Two actually.  Same concept for both.  You pick.

For the first one I used Distress Ink and heat embossed it with clear powder.  Mr. Tim does this successfully.  I never have.  (Pads not juicy enough??? Yo no se.)   So I stamped over the image with Versamark and then heat embossed again with clear.  Happy accident = notice the shadow effect to the main image.  Muy coolio.

I also gave my masked circles some extra treatment.  Water splashing.  Extra stamping.  Definitely adds interest but I wasn't sure I wanted so much interest.  Enter second card.

For this one I used Amuse pigment ink for the image.  The embossing really didn't work here either so I did the Versamark over the top thing again and once again got the shadow effect.  Do LOVE that.  I masked and inked the circles using two tones of Distress.  Went with a bday sentiment in same Amuse ink.

 The card is white.  Looks blue here, eh?  I'm trying my hand at PhotoScape editor.  Great free tool, but seems when I upload the pics to my blog, they come out blue-r than they were in the editor.  Hmmmm....

Also entering Simon Says Stamp challenge to Stamp It cuz I did.

Thanks so much for looking!

Maria!! So good to hear from you...hope you enjoy the new blog! BOTH of these cards are GORGEOUS!!! They are so unique, too! I like the second that's cleaner and simpler, but I LOVE the first!!! The water splashing and the extra looks TOO COOL! A true work of art! You should be really proud of yourself on that design!

Oh, these are so pretty Maria. Love the pink circles. The embossing was a nice touch. I can see the shadow effect. Thank you for leaving a sweet comment on my Moxie Fab article. :o)
