Let me explain each technique.
1. Embossing – I stamped the flower centers on the background and the main flowers with white craft ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder so they would show against the darker flowers.
2. Using Watermark Ink – Versamark ink will give you a watermark affect on any color cardstock. In this case, I used Versamark ink to stamp the lattice pattern in the background.
3. Stamping Outside the Lines – I stamped the leaves on a piece of Whisper White cardstock that was 2″ x 4-1/4″. Then I trimmed it down to 1-1/2″ with a paper trimmer all the way to the edge of the leaves and snipped around the leaves so they hung outside the border of the paper. It’s a cool effect, which works great for leaves, flowers and trees.
4. Outlining – The main flowers and leaves are outlined with the fine tip of a Stampin’ Write marker. If you look closely you’ll see that the outline is free handed and not complete. I love the look! What do you thing?
