I used Catherine Pooler's video HERE to create this card. I used the same technique she shared and my card ended up being very similar to her card. :)
I started with an AI background from my stash, where I had smooshed blues and greens and once dry, spritzed with blending solution to create the pretty, dotty design. I die-cut my tag, and then ran it through my Big Shot again with the Lively die. I cut a second flower sprig from white card stock and inlaid it into the AI smooshed background. I added a little piece of white ribbon at the top, popped the tag up on my card front and finished with a white heat embossed black sentiment banner.
Check out the challenge blog where we have several links to video tutorials. Make a CAS (clean and simple) card that includes inlaid die-cutting and one other item from the "your choice" list on the challenge blog's right sidebar. Then link up to the challenge. We'd love to see you in the gallery!
I still had the left over die-cut flower sprig from the alcohol ink background, so I made a second card. This doesn't include inlaid die-cutting, but it's a great way to use up my leftovers. A two-fer card, as Darnell would say. :)
Used my Clarity Brushes to add a soft gray background through a stripes stencil. White heat embossed a black sentiment banner and popped it up with the end of the leafy sprig tucked in-behind. :)
