Know Life

The other day my friend Faith showed several of us a cool technique using daubers, Pocket Silhouette stamp set and classic ink pads on a beautiful card.

 I took her technique and made this masterpiece. It is so simple anyone can do it.Start with piece of Confetti white card stock. 

Ink up your grassy plant stamp from Pocket Silhouette with Kiwi Kiss classic ink pad stamping along the horizon of the paper. Re-ink every 2 or 3 impressions, this will give you different shades of this plant. It works best to have some taller than the others, a more realistic look. 

Then you will ink up your dauber with the Kiwi Kiss ink rubbing along the plants about 1/3 from the tops all the way to the bottom of the paper. 

Then come back with another dauber inked with Close to Cocoa classic ink pad rubbing along the bottom and blend upwards. try not to go more than halfway into the Kiwi area. 

Finish your landscape up with Baja Breeze classic ink pad and another dauber. Start rubbing at the top in a circular motion. You don't have to cover every spot, the remaining white will look like clouds. In some spots I rubbed on more ink to give darker spots. 

Have fun making your masterpiece.
