Today's card is for a Technique Challenge over at StampTV. Gina K, introduced a technique last week called Wainscoting. You may find the link here. I must admit I love the look in old homes but was a tad bit intimidated by the technique on cards. But I dove right in and gave it a whirl. And here are the results...
I chose a cream card stock for my wainscot base and used my Scor-pal to score lines at 1/2 inch intervals. I selected Memento's Desert Sand for my ink and went to work. I really like how it turned out! And when it comes to summer, nothing comes to mind more than geraniums! They are such a happy flower! I found this image in Gina K.'s Enjoy the Sunshine Stamp Kit from a few years back. I colored it with Copics and sponged on a soft blue cloud background with Memento Summer Sky ink. Spellbinders' Large Ovals allowed me to cut/emboss the focal panel. I added a card stock base (Gina K.) cut with Spellbinders Scalloped Large Ovals. The final touch includes a simple jute ribbon! Thanks so much for stopping in and until next time... blessings...
