Opposites Attract!

Hi there. This is my second post tonight. I was on a roll making cards and this one, I may have broken a personal record in creating a card. I swear I got this one done in under 10 minutes! I really have to make CAS cards more often! LOL!

I'm entering this card for CAS-ual Fridays CFC#48 challenge, and also for Unity Stamp's Friends with Flair challenge.



The challenge was to make a card using opposite colors on the color wheel. I used yellow and purple.


I also tried out a new technique on this card. (at least it's new to me - heat embossing) Woo hoo! I picked up a heat gun and some black embossing powder over the weekend and this is my first try at it. I only used it on the "shine" stamp. I predict that this is gonna be really addictive; I may have to attend a 'paper crafters anonymous' meeting or something in the future. ☺ I used stamps from Unity's April KOM, black ink by Tsukineko, purple ink by Hampton Art and I colored the stars with a yellow marker from Marvy Uchida. The card stock is Bazzill.

Hope you enjoyed my card! Thanks for stopping by!

Chris ☺
