How was your weekend? I had a laid back weekend for a change and managed to tick off quite a few things on my list so I'm happy!
I'm on the CrafTangles blog with a couple of cards using the Beautiful Bloom Border. Not only does the set have a gorgeous intricate border, but it has a number of heartfelt sentiments and I do love a good sentiment.
My first card uses the spotlight technique, where you stamp the image, cut out parts, colour them and put them back like a jigsaw! How's that for a technique in a nutshell?!
I went for shades of green on my second card, as it's one of my favourite colours and I used my water brush with various shades of green from my Zig pens.
The background is made using a stencil and some faux stitching. The sentiment is heat embossed and faux stitching added to finish.
For a more in depth look at how I made these cards please take a look at my post on the CrafTangles blog HERE.
Have a great week!
