Clean and Simple 3 Card Class – Day 4 Optical Illusion

Did I say how much I’m enjoying this online card class.  Well here it is, I’m having an awesome time in this CAS 3 Card Class.  I’ve learned so much so far and we have weeks to go.  Enough about me, today’s card focused on a different type of optical illusion, Masking!!  Jennifer McGuire taught us how to use our die cuts to mask of areas and apply ink.  I had fun, so much so, that I ink the side of my card stock with the distress ink that I had to ink the sides of the cards too.  I love how it came out, despite my mistake.

Clean & Simple 3 Card Class – Day 3 Optical Illusion

Yesterday we learned a new technique called optical illusion.  Laura Bassen taught us how to do stamp layering which gives off an optical illusion.  We were taught to start with a subtle background stamp, then bold hues and finish the card with a crisp greeting which will make the whole thing pop.

So, I tried to create a card very similar to that taught in class.  I’m not sure if my card gives the same feel.  I would love it to pop a little bit more.  What do you think?

Take a look at my card:

Thank You
