Saturday I took a class at my favorite stamping store. The ArtLenz system allows you to create images with faux motion, faux depth, magnified color intensity, and/or images that appear and disappear (check out www.artlenz.com)... to 'see' these effects requires 'in person' viewing with both eyes, but scanned images will not reproduce the effects. We did a number of techniques in class and it was a blast.
IRL the stars' stripes move as you tilt/move the card. The stars were stamped in black ink on ArtLenz "active image print" papers. The ArtLenz "active image print" paper (has ultra-fine lines. I used a red sheet and blue sheet in this card); then the ArtLenz lens sheet was applied over the stamped images. The stars were then cut out.
The plaid was my 1st attempt with the plaid maker (I want to learn to make softer looking, less juvenile plaids!!!). Ribbon was stamped with craft white then white embossed. Faux stitched along outside.
I started this out with intention of sending this to my son (25) in Iraq, but think it's too juvenile... what do you think?
