August Technique Class - Stamp & Trace

What a fun class this was!  The technique was Stamp & Trace and was so easy but it made our cards so pretty!!  We learnt that all you need is a stamp set, some ink and gel pens for this technique.

Stamp & Trace

Stamp your image, then use a gel pen to enhance the image.  By adding highlights, the image will pop making for a beautiful card.

Here is the first card:

Randomly stamp the flowers on your Whisper White cardstock, using the coordinating inks for the flowers (Pacific Pt/Marina Mist)(Tangerine/Watermelon) and Mossy Meadow/Pear Pizzazz for the leaves.
