Every so often, I go off on little tangents with my card making, and try out a technique in a variety of different ways.
I had one such stint last month and also demonstrated it at a couple of workshop - the technique being to create aperture cards.
1. an opening, as a hole, slit, crack, gap, etc.
2. Also called aperture stop. Optics. an opening, usually circular, that limits the
quantity of light that can enter an optical instrument.
For this series of cards, I wanted to show how the same idea, swapping out shapes, stamps, colours etc, could provide quite a different outcome without having to reinvent the wheel each time.
Circles and birthdays first...
This one used a different stamp from the same Perfect Pennants set and swaps out a circle for a square and party hats for a scrap of ribbon...
The final one is a bit more pretty and girly, bringing in an oval shaped aperture this time, along with a different ribbon and some butterflies.
What's your favourite way to change things change things up whilst keeping them the same...?
