Online Card Class Day 2

I had a very hard time with the one layer homework. I want pop dots. I want frames. I want patterned paper. That's not the assignment.

This is what I finally came up with. 

Lesson learned: Don't trust the top edge of the 4.25 x 5.5 mask is square with the die cut! Next time I will put the inner most square down first and then work out with the other masks.

Online Card Class

I'm a few nine days behind in the Clean and Simple Card Making 2 class! 

Last night (Wednesday) I finished a card for Day 1. I wanted to use Kristina's sketch but did't have a mask, so I made one. I own the Taylored Expressions Quatrefoil Cutting Plate which is perfect for what I had in mind.

Do I have any Mister Hueys? No. Out came the Shabby Shutters Distress Re-Inker. I'm off to a great start! LOL

As I used Copics to color my image, I used Simon Says Stamp's 120 lb card stock. This was the first time I've used it, and the ink didn't bleed through! I know others have said it doesn't but as I don't know how heavy a hand they have with coloring, I had to see it for myself. I tend to put down lots of layers of color, probably more then really needed.

One thing I learned about the card stock, score it really, really well. I thought I had but the card stock cracked when I folded it. So much for being 'neat and professional.' Hey, it's a class, the whole point is to learn. Right?
Added Saturday: I'm just now getting pictures taken. I don't know what is wrong with the color. I've taken a bazillion, (okay, maybe not) and I can't get it right. Sorry, I wish it was better.
