Notably Ornate

Notably Ornate by Andrea G71

Up here in Canada we are having the "May Long".  Hope you are having a good one.  We are having a bit of rainy weather - after a gorgeous week.  Oh well.  But that means I can finally get this post done!

This is one of the cards we made at our May Stamp Club workshop.  We used two techniques on this card:  the Colour Spritzer and using the Mat Pack to Pierce a Curved Border.


Colour Spritzer - We used Marina Mist and Crumb Cake Markers with the Colour Spritzer.  The markers were spritzed on their matching card stock.   The spritzer gives a subtle effect to the card stock.  I found that you need to make sure you put the nib of the marker directly against the part of the spritzer where the air comes out.  Angle the spritzer until you find the desired position until you like how the spray is coming out.  You might have to play around a bit.

Paper Piercing a Curved Border - I used the instructions on THIS TUTORIAL.  First I made a template out of thin cardboard of the same size circle.  I wanted to make sure my circle image stayed clean and wouldn't get smudged or bent.  Then I followed the above instructions.

I think everything else is self-explanatory by looking at the photo.  :)
