Background Ink Smear


Technique Time!  This technique I'm calling background ink smear.  There is a similar card using this background technique here. There are a couple ways to do this technique -- one using an ink spot, and the other is using the foam stamp pad.  Each gives a similar yet different look.

Card Measurements:
Pretty Peacock    4-1/4 x 9 (score 5-1/2)
                             (2)    2-3/8 circle
Fresh as a Daisy    3 x 4
Petal Pink              2 x 4
Basic White    2” circle, 3 x 4 (inside)

Fractured Card Technique



Technique time!  Today's card is called Fractured Card Technique.  It can be done by first cutting out a square and piecing things back together (as shown in the top two cards); however, I chose an easier route and simply placed a piece of designer series paper in the center and designed from there.  It was less bulky and had pretty much the same outcome.

Card measurements:
Pebble Path    
        5-1/2 x 8-1/2
        1/4 x 5-1/2 (4)
        1 x 2
Very Vanilla    
        4 x 5-1/4
        3 x 4
        2 x 3
Let’s Go Fishing    2-1/4 x 2-1/4
