These are a couple of cards I sent to a friend and her son awhile ago. On the top card I wanted to use an idea floating around in my head based off of one of my fave cards from Lauren Meader from probably 2 or 3 years ago. She had stamped the image in black multiple times and then overlaid a popped up piece of cardstock where the image was colored in copics. It wasn't the "complete" image and blended perfectly with the black/white of the card. I've done that a few times. So, with Smokey Shadow cardstock and CTMH Daisy White ink I went to work. It created the perfect greyish background. A bit of color with the pink (bad memory and I can't tell if that is Hib Burst or Rasp Fizz from the photo) and then I stamped the image again on an SU dsp that has a greyish/pinkish background for some subtlety.
The little boy card was fun. My kids and I had a blast creating a card that was just for him. Lots of ideas were flowing around the craft table that day (in fact, if memory serves, he could have received an entire zoo of cards if my children would have their way!). I don't own the double ended banner dies... but seeing this reminds me I want them. sigh... lots of measuring and cutting :)
