the main images

Now that you can see some of the main image colored, you may want to add more fillers, and baby's breath.

Mask main images again, and fill in

Step 10

Keep adding until your arrangement looks full

Step 11

Add the baby's breath where desired

To make the card, trim around scene as desired

layer on a complimentary piece of cardstock,

and trim in a similar fashion.

To soften the white background paper, use a color duster or stipple brush and softly add lettuce ink.

The sentiment is stamped with Versamark ink on white cardstock, and embossed with Champagne Pearlustre EP.

The white background is also softened by dusting

the lettuce ink to match the focal piece.


Andy did this "scene" on scratch paper just to demonstrate the technique,

and was about to throw it away,

but I snatched it and brought it home to make a card
