Want to learn a bunch of techniques? This blog hop is a great opportunity to check out a bunch of different techniques, watch videos on how to create them and see some amazing art from different designers.
For my technique, I chose the "Drop Shadow" technique. You can see GinaK do this technique in her video here----> Creating a Drop Shadow
This is an incredibly easy technique to do but it gives such a fantastic effect. I chose to do mine with two colors of pink, but it's also stunning with a light blue in back and black on top like GinaK shows in her video.
I used the new Hugs & Prayers set to do the Drop Shadow on my card. This technique works best with bold and silhouette type of images. I started with a piece of white cardstock and stamped the base image with a light pink ink. I then stamped slightly to the right with the same image with a darker pink-purple ink. (I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to make sure my images were lined up correctly.) I mounted this on top of a piece of Creme de Menthe cardstock. I added some small ribbon flags and some pink buttons and popped everything up on a piece of digi paper (all from GinaK Designs) and then on top of a base of Bubblegum pink cardstock
The greeting image is also from the Hugs & Prayers set and was stamped with the dark purple-pink ink.
