{Spotlight Project} Create Frames, Backgrounds, and Edges with Deepti!

Hello, friends! Deepti here and welcome to another spotlight feature. The Artsy Tribal Doodles set is so versatile for our cards, this time I decided to use it to create frames, backgrounds and edges for my cards. So here is my set of three :)

I used the largest and the smallest rectangle dies to make my masks. I then used the inner rectangular mask to stamp my frame and outer frame mask to stamp my background with artsy tribal stamp.

I used some post it notes to mask and create the artsy tribal stamped edge.

I then stamped the flowers and colored them with some warm grey Prisma Color pencils.

Fussy cut these and assembled all the cards along with some sentiment stamping.

This was fun easy and a quick :) Here is the look of each card individually ...

I have used Artsy Tribal Doodles, the August 2016 Stamp Club set, The Birds and The Blooms, Floral Bliss, Fond Expressions - 2 and Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies
