Playing Katniss Everdeen is launching her career into the stratosphere. After getting this start, the phrase "the sky's the limit" applies to her. I haven't had a chance to see the movie yet, although I loved the books. I personally can't wait to see it, now I just need to find some people to go with.
I actually created this card for my first swap with the stamp club gals. The balloon image features the "kissing" technique, which is really easy to do. I wanted to create a card that was cheerful and on the bright side. This was for the meeting in January, and things outside in VT were quite dreary – especially since we didn't get any snow this winter. I wanted to think about sunny, summertime days! I used the colors from the DSP to set my "palette" and I went from there. Isn't this card fun?!?
I used the following materials to make this card:
- Stamps: Up, Up & Away; Dot, Dot, Dot
- Cardstock: Peach Parfait, Wild Wasabi, Early Espresso, Poppy Parade, Whisper White
- Ink: Peach Parfait, Poppy Parade, Wild Wasabi, Baja Breeze, Early Espresso
- Accessories: Just Add Cake DSP, 1 1/4" Circle punch, 1 3/8" Circle punch, Scallop Circle punch, Corner Rounder punch, Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder
Here is how you do the "Kissing" technique:
- Ink a solid image stamp with the lighter colored ink.
- Ink a background stamp with the darker colored ink.
- Press the solid image stamp onto the background stamp, and then stamp onto your paper.
