Technique Junkies newsletter out..... : ) This technique is called Bands of Color. I used Ranger inks Spun Sugar, Shabby Shutters and Tumbled glass. I used Shabby Shutters on a few strips of cardstock and used the grass die to cut out a few layers of grass. I stamped the Dahlia onto the card and again on cardstock- and fussy cut out the flower head and the leaves. I colored with Distress Markers. I outlined the leaves so no white was showing from cutting out the leaves. I added some Gelly Roll Pen in the center of the flower.
I felt I needed to add something to balance the card, so I cut out a dragonfly from the Cheery Lynn Mini Critters die cut. I outlined from the negative part of the die onto vellum and painted the vellum with Creative Inspirations paint- and one dried added the painted vellum to the frame of the dragonfly.
