Yay it's Friday! I love today's class, but I really DO NOT love my cards for today's class. Grumble. I think I just don't have the right kind of sets to achieve the look I wanted, but nevertheless, here are my attempts.
For the background on this card, I used masking along with the airbrush tool by Tim Holtz. The stamp and die set is Pretty Poppies by My Favorite Things. I like these stamps but in the end it seemed to be too much black, and/or not enough background color. I tried to "help" by adding gold glitter Spica pen to the flower centers and addition gold with sequins, but it still feels meh.
I don't feel much more love for this second version, to be honest. I used inking over masking in this card. The flower set is In Bloom by Paper Trey Ink,, sentiment by My Creative Time. Then I wasn't liking the empty flowers, so I added a little gold embossing around parts of them. Still wasn't feeling it, so I water colored them with a water brush. Again....meh.
This is a technique I will try to revisit later when I have other stamp/die sets that might work a little better. Here are both cards, side by side, for your meh-ing pleasure. LOL ;)
