CAS-ual Fridays and Lily Pad Cards

Black, white and read all over... lol! I haven't heard that one in ages! That is this week's challenge over at CAS-ual Fridays.

With those colors, I immediately thought of the Twilight series of books...


I planned a one-layer card in my head but it didn't turn out as cool as I thought... I needed red paint for drips! ;)


I masked a heart outline on a white card base, inked it in red, removed the outline mask and placed the heart shaped mask over the heart.  I used my Versamark pen to sort of randomly "ink" my lettering stamp (I don't recommend this as I probably wrecked my pen!), stamped over the mask and heat embossed with clear. I inked the entire card black, smeared a bit of red ink at the bottom of the heart and misted some Cinder Glimmer Mist over all.

All this "resisting" works perfectly for the Lily Pad Cards resist challenge here.

Thanks for stopping by!

I'm glad you didn't make drips. I think the card turned out better as you made it. It goes very well with the book series. Great techniques!
