I really cannot believe this is card tutorial #500. Didn’t I just start this blog yesterday? Where does the time go . . . . . . .
If you would like a quick way to view past tutorials CLICK HERE or click on the Tutorial title at the top of my blog.
Anyhow, today’s tutorial was created for my Stampin’ Up! Down Line Technique Swap. The technique used here is Emerging Color. This technique gives you a beautiful background. It’s hard to see it in it’s full glory in these pictures. The Flowers that are stamped all over the background and then covered up really show through a bit under the dark ink put over them to give you a lovely layered look. You just have to see in it person. So get out those inks and stamps!
