Clean & Simple 3 Card Class – Day 6 Graffiti Stamping

I have to say that I absolutely LOVE the card I made today for my homework.  I took my time and really put my heart and soul into this card because I wanted it so be super clean and crisp.  I’m still working on the backgrounds into the foreground.  Today’s technique is called Graffiti Stamping.  Graffiti stamping is when you create a background cluster of colors and layers. 

I have to say, the “You” die is my favorite.  I love the look it gives to the cards I’ve seen it on.  I’m so glad I was able to use it to make my card. 

Check out my one layer card graffiti stamped card:

You

So, I said in the beginning of this post, that I took my time and really pulled my card off with a crisp, clean look. Well, I do have a small error that I didn’t notice until after I was done and I couldn’t fix it.  Can you tell what the boo-boo is that I made?

The “strawberry slash” you has to pieces that should be white.  Inside the “O” and the loop in the “Y” should both be white.  Instead of placing the white pieces, I put the strawberry slash color.  The “You” is suppose to look like I wrote it on the white background, when we write those areas would match their background.  Although small it changes the look of the graffiti.  I still like it. 

I will make another card using this die and show you what I mean.

Please let me know what you think of my card in the comment section.
