Another go at colour layering

















I decided to have another go at the colour layering technique but using the same design as the card in the previous post, I am happier with these colours, I love the peach and mint green together.
To make the centre panel I used low tack masking tape on the edges of the green card and then stamped with an "old letter writing" Hero Arts stamp, I then used "Bundled Sage" distress ink  on the edges. Next I stamped the flower images and then very carefully removed the tape, it leaves a lovely crisp edge.
Another quick post as things are still hectic here, hope it quietens down soon!!!
