Optical illusion cards

Hi there!
Here are two cards that I made this afternoon for the on line card class C&S 3!    We are focusing on optical illusion techniques.
For this card, I die cut the circle and then used a stencil and some distress inks ( spiced marmalade & worn lipstick).  I then inked up lightly the circle and stamped the happy birthday with a MFT Celebrate stamp set, I had to mask the stamp as I wanted it stacked instead of long.  I lightly went over the whole card with the Spiced Marmalade ink for a soft background instead of leaving it stark white.  I placed the circle back in so it is a single layer card and then adhered the whole panel onto a white card base. I added a few sequins just for some bling.

I like all of the circle"ness" going on and it really draws your eye all over the card!

For this next card..I couldn't help but bring out my Tiny Flags BG stamp and stamped once with Rose bud ink and then stamped again off to the side in Dandelion ink (both Memonto dye ink).  I think it looks just like an optical illusion and I see tiny and large triangles.  I die cut a ticket shape out and stamped the sentiment.

I think these are fun cards and they were super fast and easy...and one layer cards!  I am really enjoying the class and it's not too late to sign up and learn a new technique or two or three (or more lol).
Thanks for stopping by tonight!
