I made a card last weekend ready to teach at card class, but I was singularly uninspired, and it took me for ever to make just a simple card ....
The patterned paper was embossed with a dotted swirl, and this was emphasised with some direct to paper inking.
The cradle was a diecut oval with a section cut out. Some lace was added down the side of the hood of the cradle, and the edges sponged.
The cradle was then 'suspended' by ribbon
and a congratulations sign hung from the base of the crib.
Oh how plain, and I could not get past it ........
So then at class I showed how to use the negative die cut to form a mask, and sprayed it with a pale blue iridescent spray.
Still not happy with it, I today added some second generation stamping with a background stamp (again using the mask), then added another layer of spray.
This is the final product, which I am now happy with.
