Double Sayings and Shadow Monograms Tutorial

So start by stamping the Shadow Monogram using a soft colored ink.

It is so faint that you can barely see it, you can use slightly darker colors but softer ones are always going to be better for the shadow effect.

Stamp the message from the Double Sayings set using a black pigment ink.

And voila, that is what you get, a soft shadow monogram and a sharp message.

Punch it, cut it, trim it, using whatever methods you like or have available. Me, I like my punches, although this set is NOT designed to fit any particular punch, some of the sayings will do in a variety of them.

Then I attached it to a border -from the Dotty Border- that I stamped using the same color ink as the one from the monogram. And I decorated it using light blue pearls.

At the end, I changed the position of the message in relation to the border.
And this is the finished card, for which I have attached Prima papers from Craftwork Cards.
