6 weeks in a row I have done a LIVE video – yahoo! I am so enjoying sharing a project with you all and it is great for making me get in my craft room and actually craft each week! This week I featured the Lots of Lavender stamp set which is another one of the awesome Sale-a-bration gifts you can earn FREE until the end of the month! I wanted lots of texture for this card and was inspired by Kimberley van Diepen for the torn, rolled edge combined with scallops and doilies.
I used the Rock n Roll technique to achieve the shading of colour on my stamp – this is one of the very first techniques I used to share in workshops when I first became a demonstrator and it’s still a great simple trick!
How cool is that little rolled strip – I think it looks like it is being torn from the card to reveal the sentiment and all the other layers! It’s a fun and simple way to add a little more texture to the card. The Linen Thread has been a staple in my craft stash for years and I use it all the time – it always provides just the right finishing touch! Watch how I made this card here:
