This was a really FUN technique to play with (although a bit messy...my fingers are still orange and pink!!) and one I will definitely use again! My first card was one of those that didn't really translate into what I had envisioned in my mind:
I had this idea of using silhouettes from the latest Catherine Pooler SOA Wild Garden, and while I love how my background turned out (Spiced Marmalade and Picked Raspberries Distress Inks and Copper embossing), the silhouettes just didn't look as striking as what I thought they'd be. It's not a bad looking card...just not what I'd pictured in my head.
My 2nd try I am absolutely in love with! I used a Gina Marie Designs die that I've had for a loooooong time but never used and it worked perfectly with my other half of my background!
So which one do you like best? This was such a great technique to play with and Loll and Bonnie and the rest of the DT have some absolutely GORGEOUS inspiration to get you motivated this month! The challenge is open till the 24th, and you can find all the info you need to play along right HERE.
Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!
