Make It Monday - Frosted Images
This week's Make It Monday Challenge at Papertrey Ink is Frosted Images. It is a pretty cool technique that I had a lot of fun playing with. I used the Botanical Silhouettes set for this technique along with a flower I created using the Bloom Builders #3 Die. I stamped the grass image from the set onto white cardstock in Ripe Avocado and then Fresh Snow to acheive the Frosted Images Technique. The grass serves as a background to the flower.
For the flower, I die cut two complete sets. . .one in Ocean Tides and one in Aqua Mist and alternated them when creating the flower. The photo doesn't show it very well, but the flower has a really nice varigated look due to alternating the colors layer by layer. I created the leaves for the flower with a circle punch and then I ran them through my Cuttlebug with the Book Print Impression Plate. I die cut a piece of Kraft cardstock using the Photo Finish Strips Die and stamped the sentiment on it. Finally, I added some pearls and a glitter border to the card.
You can see more creations using this technique here. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
