House of Cards November Challenge!
This month at House of Cards we invite you to choose between the colors or adding lots of layers. I chose the latter because it's gray and dreary here in Seattle and I wanted to play with lots of colors and patterns which I achieved through lots of layers. Lots.
First I brushed on some Distress Inks onto my card base using Clarity brushes. I love these! I tend to push down too hard when using sponge type applicators but don't have that issue with the brushes. I do have to practice patience tho because it can take a while to build the color up sufficiently. I then splatted on some water and set it aside to dry.
Next I diecut the hills, grasses, elephants, and clouds. Wow! Lots of cuts. Building the scene took a while but I'm very happy with the results. So cute!
The Details: American Crafts Sunny 6x6 paper, Avery Elle Dotted Border dies, Papertrey Ink Cloud dies and Mixed Messages sentiment, Bazzill Fig Swirl Cardstock, Memory Box cardstock base, Distress Ink Tumbled Glass and Peacock Feathers, Clarity brush applicators
