Tuesday teapot

A pretty fall tea pot was the inspiration for this card - and I did the border first with a variety of leaves in solid and outline ( Elemental Doodles leaves, of course) and then went to stamp the HEY CUTIE in the middle. Well, I must have rocked the stamp because I got edges ... I mean I really got edges. So ... I slit them from the center, sponged a bit of orange on the back which really didn't show as much as I had hoped, and rolled the edges on a cut off Q tip. Then stamped my text and glued it on from the back. I kind of like the results!

Ok Juliet, what is the name of this technique?


  1. OMG! When you screw up, you really screw up good!! This is SO cool! And it's perfect with the rest of the card. Most would have stamped on a new layer and put it over top. Quite impressed with your ingenuity. Oh Boy, hope your niece's lone daughter survives another brother.

  2. Wellllllll... the leafy layer looks like color collage to me, but the frame effect that you did - definitely the highlight of this card - I don't know what that is called, but if it isn't a technique, it should be!


Thanks for leaving me a note! Makes it all worthwhile!
