Dragonflies Through The Window

Tonight is another Papertrey Blog Hop









Welcome to my blog. The challenge this month was to utilize score lines in a creative way as a decorative accent to any type of project. This is what I came up with.
I started with a piece of glossy white cardstock and did a 3/4" reverse grid with my Scor-Pal. Next I used a Blue Breeze Kalidecolor pad and brayered over the reversed score lines in a circle to get the lines to pop. After that I inked the dragonflies from the Pond Life set in white craft ink and stamped them on top of the finished background, then I added shimmer chalk.
I orginally learned these techniques from The Technique Junkies . They were submitted by Cindy Cade (Reverse Grid) and Jennifer Sennes (Starburst) but I came up with the idea to put them together.
I decided to make a video to show you how I made the card and do the techniques. This is the first time I have ever done this. The video is not as clear as I would like but you should still be able to see how I did it. Just click on the video below and let me know what you think. Thanks for stopping by.
