** 10/15/17 Top 3 Winner at Createful Heart Digis & Design Challenges! **
Hi everyone! Happy Sunday! I’m posting on the a2z Scrapbooking blog today and I’m excited to share a DT inspiration project using the Hero Arts Caffeine Fix Digital Kit. I created a fun set of 8 note cards that I splattered with water, distressed with ink, and in general made them look somewhat messy. Can you tell I had an inky good time?! ;)
Despite the complex look, they really were pretty simple to create as all eight are the same. Working in assembly line fashion, I printed eight brown versions of the ‘low battery’ image from the digital kit and fussy them, and put them in a pile. I heavily distressed the edges of the card bases to make them look ‘dirty’ and put them in a pile. Using the Tweed Pattern stencil and dark brown ink, I stenciled several pieces of medium brown cardstock, cut them into smaller pieces and layered them on dark brown cardstock. I adhered those to the fronts of the card bases along with the ‘low battery’ images. I inked the bottom of a red solo cup and ‘stamped’ it onto each card front to resemble a sloppy coffee cup ring, splattered a little water and adhered a few brown sequins.
I’d love to enter this set of cards into the following challenges:
