Curls & Swirls Two Ways


Good morning! Ardyth here with a pair of cards that show that one small change can make one BIG difference!

For both cards, I followed the same process:

  1. stamped the Curls & Swirls background with Copic-friendly ink, using my MISTI. I did not remove the stamp from the MISTI door.
  2. outlined the 'hidden' hearts in the background (you could ignore these for a more uniform background
  3. coloured the hearts quickly. Oh-so-quickly. No precision, just shades of red, yellow and pink
  4. coloured the background with blue-greens, yellow-green and blue. Again, QUICK.
  5. Placed the panel back into the MISTI
At this point the supplies changed. 

For the card on the left, I restamped with black ink and embossed with Clear embossing powder.

For the card on the right, I restamped with embossing ink and embossed with white embossing powder.

What a difference, right? Which one do you like better?

I finished the cards in the same way, but in opposite colours.

Love the difference but I think I am partial to the black outline.
