My intention was to make these cards without doing any inking on them. It didn't last! I love the look of the white, but to me they just needed that touch of black around the edge to make them pop a little.
To stamp the image for each card I used Smooch Ink. I really like how the image doesn't stamp completely. I also like that some parts are thicker and some are lighter. I think I'll experiment with other images using Smooch.
When creating these, my first thought was to just have the die cut opening with the plaid pattern showing through. They really looked plain. That's when I tried the white frame around the openings and to me they looked so much better!
Sorry for the sporadic posts and long periods in between each one. My husband has been ill and I craft and blog when I get a chance. Because of that you may see several posts in a row and then a week or more without anything. Hoping things turn around soon and we'll be back to normal.
Thanks for stopping by!
