Let’s take a look at my fun technique card:
I wanted to try a ‘split scene’ for awhile now and thought this image from Tropical Paradise would be perfect for it. This card gives me the feeling of looking through a paned window.
I started by stamping the island image and sea gulls with black hybrid ink on a 3 x 4 piece of mixed media paper. Distress Inks were used for water coloring. Once this was dry, I cut it lengthwise into 1 inch strips and matted them onto 1¼ x 4¼ strips of black card stock. They are a perfect fit for a 4¼ x 5½ card.
The big, bold Paradise, from the Plumerias stamp set, and some baker’s twine finish the front of the card.
Of course, a tropical scene needed to be on the inside as well:
Until next time…
