Shout Hooray! A One Layer Card with My Favorite Things


Today I wanted to play along with the My Favorite Things race for the gold olympic card challenge. I've never been super into olympic sports, but I do like to sit down and watch, especially when its at night prime time like this year. Snowboarding is probably my favorite, just because Shaun White ;)

So the first olympic challenge over at MFT was to create a card with 3 different MFT Stamp Sets. I needed a birthday card for my cousin so I started with the Party Balloons" set and then a bold sentiment from the discontinued "Celebrate You" set, and finally my little charecters from the "Four Legged Friends" set. 

How I Did It


To put it all together I started by setting up my stamps in the layout I wanted, and remove the balloons and sentiment to stamp later, and stamped my doggies and balloon strings in black ink. I know I wanted to do some ink blending, so I wanted to get them out of the way and masked off. Next I stamped the three balloons starting with the one in the center, which I masked prior to stamping the two outer balloons. I masked off the remaining two balloons before using clarity brushes to do some light ink blending around the edges of my card. I wanted a little more 'party' on my card, so I look some gold alcohol ink mixative onto a brush and flicked it around. Then I decided just to go all out and flicked on a few more colors of alcohol ink. There was no rhyme of reason to the alcohol ink choice, it was just sitting in front of me. To finish, I stamped my sentiment several times using my MISTI and some thick VersaFine Ink to get a nice rich black over top all the other fun, and lastly colored in my images with copic marker. I mounted the whole thing onto some gold foil card stock and to an a2 sized card base.
