CC3C #8: Best Day Ever

Hello again. Hope you are enjoying your Friday night and are maybe doing a bit of crafting like me. I’ve been playing along with the Compendium of Curiosities 3 Challenges this last couple of months and I have a very last minute entry for the latest challenge. For challenge #8 we are to use the Faded Layers Technique. You can find all the details on the challenge HERE as well as the rules, details on prizes, and many amazing samples. Speaking of prizes, this challenge is sponsored by The Funkie Junkie Boutique.

For my card I wanted to showcase the technique so I kept the embellishments and stamping to a minimum. Using some remnant rubs and the Hash Tags stamp set to create a focal point and finishing with a few contrasting enamel dots.

Easy peasy and I love how much texture the simple technique creates on the background. See you later gators!

  3. Hi Danielle! Better late than never right?? But, you were in time! Good for you! I love your card. The faded layers look awesome in your background. The bold black stamped numbers on top really look amazing and the hashtag banner running across them is very cute. I also really like the stitching! Thanks for sharing with us at CC3C. <3 Candy
