Faux Layers Technique

Woohoo! Grey's Anatomy is on tonight! Can't wait to see it...the one show I simply CAN'T miss! But, I recorded last week's since I was gone and just remembered that I needed to watch it before tonight's show! So, today I get a DOUBLE dose of Grey's!!!

This will be a quick post...I'm still frantically working on Display items for Leadership. Any stamping time I get I am working on that assignment. I haven't even had time to photograph the things I did over my Retreat weekend!

This is another card my Techniques Class made the other night! This technique is called Faux Layers...a quick and easy way to add some depth to your card. On this card, I tore a piece of cardstock longer than my cardfront, then used the torn edge as a mask, covering the side I didn't want colored. I used a sponge with So Saffron to color. Then inked up the Paisley BG with More Mustard and stamped over the colored area...leaving the mask in place. Once removed, the "torn" edge resembles another layer on the card! I stamped the flower and tag with Blue Bayou and cut them out. The center is a Faux button...More Mustard punched with a 1/2 circle and tied with hemp!

Sets: Be Happy, Paisley BG
C/S: Very Vanilla, Blue Bayou, More Mustard
Inks: So Saffron, More Mustard, Blue Bayou
Other: Natural Hemp, 1/16 punch, 1/2 circle punch, dimensionals
