Designer Frame Window, portrait
This is a card I made using a technique I don't use very often ~ coloring with pastels and blender pens. You dip the blender pen in the corner of your pastel and color in your image. - It gives the soft look of pastels but allows for just a bit more precision in your coloring. I love to punch a window and then stamp through it. This card took it one step further ~ I punched the oval window and then embossed around it using the designer frames textured impressions embossing folder. You can get the e.f. for FREE with a qualifying S.A. B. order! Originally I made this card for an SUO challenge, but I didn't get it posted in time. This week's SUO challenge is to make a Valentine card using two colors... /can I get it done by tomorrow?
