Gosh, I can't believe how long it has been since I blogged! Well, I am sitting down today and putting together a bunch of cards to show you over the next month, so enjoy your daily inspiration!
Here is a card that we made at my Simply Scored Borders Plate class in April. At the class, we made four projects using the Borders Plate from the Spring Catalog. It is difficult to see in this picture but around the Oval Accent, there is a scoring line to outline the entire framing.
I CASE'd this card from a talented stamper on SplitCoastStampers because it allowed me to highlight several techniques in one card. After we used the Borders Plate, I showed how to color your flower trim by just pressing it down onto your ink pad a few times until you get the color intensity you want. Super easy and a very pretty!
Finally, we used the blending technique using watercolor paper and markers on the flowers from the Everything Eleanor stamp set. First, the flower was stamped using StazOn ink. We then colored the base of each flower petal with Primrose Petals and used a blender pen to move the color out to the ends of each petal. We then came back through with a Raspberry Ripple marker and placed a very small amount of color where there was shading and used the blender pen to again move the color around and blend it with the other color.
Here's the inside of the card. Just a simple flower in the corner but it sure finishes off the card.
