CTMH Technique Blog Hop - Call for Back-Up

Welcome to our CTMH Technique Hop! This month we're featuring the technique from page 80 of Annual Inspirations...Call for Back-up! If you've come from Darlys Recker's blog you're on the right path. Just click the link at the end of the post to continue on the hop.

In this technique you create a border using a punch and then back it with cardstock, , B&T paper, ribbon, etc. to make it stand out. Take a look at what I did for this hop.

I backed my chevron punched border with some Pink Glitter paper. It's so pretty and sparkly and really pull the pinks out of the stamped images up above. I used the Brushstrokes stamp set for the colors behind the butterflies. I stamped rolled to get the two ink colors. First you ink in a light color then just roll the edges on the darker ink pad. You won't mix your inks as long as you go from light to dark ink. Then I stamped some of the butterflies in black over the Brushstrokes images. The smaller butterflies are stamp rolled for the 2 color effect.
