Grand Opening: Day 2 ~ Techniques

Today is day 2 of our Grand Opening Celebration.  It is technique Tuesday.  I chose a coloring technique - chalks.  The butterfly is paper pieced and I did some dry embossing too.

I printed out the butterfly twice - cut out one and layered it on the second image.  I colored the wings with chalk.

The base card is dry embossed with a texture plate, then I dragged a VersaMark ink pad over the embossed pattern to make it really stand out.  These new texture plates TAC carries really give a beautiful and deep impression - LOVE them. 

This is a super easy any occasion card - great to keep on hand just in case something comes up.

The image is from DDH Pansies, which is a new DDH set this week.

Supplies -- DDH Pansies, Papers: Black cardstock, Swimming Pool cardstock, Postal texture plate, Amberley Grace ribbon, Basic Brights chalk, VersaMark ink. 

Tomorrow we will be featuring birthday cards so check back.
