Cre8tive Cards 5 - May 2011

Here are the cards from the latest card class.

We did two inky technique cards, firstly one made using a block of colour made by blending the Distress Inks together. The top card just had two colours of inks (blue and yellow) but where they overlapped green was created and the lower card had three colours of inks (blue, yellow and pink) and where they overlapped green and purple were also made. We then stamped a bold image in black for a great contrast.
 Our second technique used ink blending again but this time the ink was resisted over an embossed area on the card.
Our third card was a simple stamped card, quick but effective with an added touch of Adirondack Dimensional Pearls in the centre of some of the flowers.
Next was a ribbon flower technique which is great for using up those longer scraps of ribbon. Depending on how tight you twist the ribbon gives you different looks.
And last but not least a folding technique to make a stepper card. Great because it folds flat to post so can go as a normal letter (rather than large letter) as long as you don't embellish it too heavily!
