Taking It A Little Further With Lydia

Howdy there! So it's my fourth month posting as a designer here on the Craft Stamper Magazine Blog, every first Thursday I'll be sharing a card taking an idea from my article that month.

This month I had a one layer card featured in the 'Just One Layer' article, that one was very muted and girly and I wanted to create a more viberant and unisex card using nearly the same technique.

*Firstly mask around a panel in the middle of your card- I have used washi tape around the edge of my card layer.
*I have then stamped leaves from Wplus9's 'Spring Blooms' in two different green chalk inks around the edge of the washi frame, as chalk ink takes a while to dry I then heat set it with my heat tool.
*I then tool a mini bleanding tool and Distress Ink to blend inward starting on the washi tape and blending lightly inward.
*Gently remove the washi tape, keeping it as flat as you can to reduce the chances of ripping your card.
*Add your sentiment- I have used Winnie & Walter's 'The Big, The Bold And You'. 

Here you can see how flat the card is......

If you have created something that was inspired by my article I would totally love to see it... so if you would like to leave a link to your project in the comments section or on my blog Love Lydia Brooke and I'll pop on over and take a look.

Hugs, Lydia xxx
