US227 Morning Meadow Trust God

10.19.2013

This weekend's challenge at Unscripted Sketches has a nice basic layout. Imagine it layered with some of your favorite patterned papers or perhaps featuring a favorite ribbon as the main focal point. What will you do with it?



I've recently begun following a blog written by Heather Telford. Heather shares beautiful no-layer and minimally layered greeting cards. Sometimes she will share cards where she has heat embossed an image and then stamped the same image again in coordinating colors. The background is usually sponged and/or brayered in to complete the 'scene'. I copied this technique for the floral panel you see here. It was easy and I just love the overall softness of the scene. I hope you like it, too. :)

  3. The floral panel is beautiful. It draws my eye in to keep looking at the different colors. The greeting on the tag is very pretty.

    1. Thank you, Tina. The technique is so easy, but like you said it results in a finished image that draws the eye in. The greeting is from our stamp set Trust God and is one that I'm trying to LIVE. Thanks for the comment :)

  4. Wonderful card! I think it would make a perfect sympathy card. I need to make some more of those...
