Yep, I'm back again, and since I got just my Simon Says Stamp Oct 2014 kit, I am reviewing another Kristina Werner video.
I selected the second card on the video as it seemed it might be simple enough. Her video didn't show her making the entire card, so I had to kind of wing it a little.
In my Simon package, I had also ordered the 120 lb SSS white cardstock, and since this looked like a single layer card with some alcohol ink coloring, I used that. It is a great cardstock- it certainly has enough heft to serve as a single layer card base.
The fact that the alcohol inks won't soak through also means that you're pretty limited in your blending. As a result, my coffee cup shadows leave quite a bit to be desired.
I didn't need a thank you card today, so I used a different sentiment from the set, and I think that turned out great. Everything else, I tried to copy from Kristina's card.
Here's how it turned out:
I forgot to round the top corners, and my card is a tent fold where hers is a side fold.
So what do you think? I think my stamping was spot on, but my coloring fell sadly short. So I give myself a "Good Try" for this one.
Stamping with clear stamps
Copic coloring (or Spectrum Noir, in my case)
Paper that's great for card making may not be perfect for Copic coloring. I'll need to either learn better coloring techniques or live with less than perfect coloring lol.
Have a great Saturday!
