OCC Background Check Day 4-6
This is one of the most CAS cards I've ever made, although it was a little bit of work. Kristina Werner showed how she embossed a background and then colored it with Distress Inks. I decided to try the same thing but with a different embossing folder. With the embossing, the card showed a cupcake in the bottom right-hand corner and dots all the way around the card. Trying my Smooch inks for the first time, I barely touched each dot with blue, then outlined the cupcake in red, blue and gold Smooch colors before adding a touch of gold Stickles. After layering onto blue cardstock, I stamped the Happy and die cut the Birthday. I then added some blue bling for the final touch.
I'm not real happy with this card, but it's okay considering all the steps it took. I will continue to look for an embossing folder with flowers that might work better.
Thanks for stopping by today! I appreciate your visits and comments very much, and I hope to see you again real soon.
