Today I'm sharing a card that uses a new (to me) technique inspired by Joyce Mehrberg's card over at Happy Little Stampers April CASE The Designer Challenge. You can see Joyce's gorgeous card by clicking HERE. I absolutely love the artsy results of this technique and can't wait to try it out with additional stamp sets and dies.
Here's my creation:
And here's a closer look:
I also want to give a shout-out to Jennifer McGuire for the helpful video on how to get clear stamped images with new stamps and dye inks. This was my first time inking up the Painted Butterflies Stamp Set, and the information Jennifer shared in her video made a huge difference in the results I got when making this card. Thank you, Jennifer!
