After posting the card shown at left, I had a few requests for a tutorial so I finally decided I would make one. It's not just a tutorial, it's my very first video tutorial! I actually had a lot of fun making it, although I only shot the video once because time is limited and I didn't really want to do it again and again 'til it was perfect. I also shot a video on making a puffy heart but that one turned out really bad and will have to be redone. LOL Anyway, I noticed that I didn't speak loud enough throughout the video and you'll see that I was completely stumped when the white ink didn't show up as planned. There is a long pause while I scrambled for a solution so please don't judge it too harshly. ;D
I didn't want to make the same card for the tutorial because that, quite frankly, would've been boring so I used two other stamps from the same set, Unity's January Kit of the Month - To the Moon & Back. I inked up the card base with six different colours of ink and then stamped the moon and stars in black (where the star and twine were on the other card). Originally, I wanted to make this a one-layer card by inking the sentiment on the lower left hand corner with white ink but it didn't want to show up well so I decided to create a panel like in the first card and popped it on with dimensionals.
If you make a card with a background like this, please link it up in the comments here and I'll pop by to have a look. Thanks so much!
