Clear & Sheer Day 3
Hi everybody! I'm here with homework from Day 3 at Online Card Classes' Clear & Sheer class. I finished this card yesterday but immediately hesitated to post it. First, I wasn't sure a clear acrylic card would show up in the picture, and second, I wasn't sure I was finished with the card. I decided to go ahead and show you this, and if I redo it, I'll post the second one later.
Our focus on the card was using clear acrylic material for either tags or cards. I decided to try an acrylic card since I already had some. If it looks cloudy to you, there's a reason for that. I just realized I didn't take the film off the clear card before adding the images! Just now saw that on a different piece...of course, I see it after the card is finished & posted! DUH!
Using a Lawn Fawn stamp set called Loads of Fun, I glued some die cut images on the front of the card and then glued the rest of the arrangement on the inside. The sentiment is on the outside. I die cut the same images in white to attach to the other side of where it's originally glued so the adhesive wouldn't show through. That includes the little bubbles. They're so little it was kind of hard to get them to stick. I used Copics to color the images.
My question is, should I've put a piece of patterned paper on the inside of the card for use as a background? Would it look better? These images seem to be floating on the card. I'd love to know your thoughts.
Thank you for stopping by today. I appreciate your visits and comments very much, and I hope to see you again real soon ~ Day 4 is coming up tomorrow, if all goes well.
